Texas senator Ted Cruz (R) is reportedly keeping the money he’s fundraising for his fellow GOP senators facing a runoff election in Georgia.
The Daily Beast reported Wednesday that Cruz “blared a handful of Facebook ads” asking people’s help to keep the U.S. Senate in Republican hands by holding the two U.S. Senate seats in Georgia runoff contests.
Cruz bought 15 separate ads on Facebook over the past two weeks, each featuring a video of the senator dramatically hyping the need to hold two U.S. Senate seats in Georgia runoff contests.
“Gun-grabbing, tax hikes, open borders, and stacking the Supreme Court. That’s the radical Democrat agenda if they win the Georgia Senate elections,” Cruz declared.
He asked for $5 contributions to his new “Keep Georgia Red fund.” However, all the money raised went directly to Cruz, according to The Beast.
“Facebook users who clicked through to the online donation page—and read the fine print at the bottom—would see that the actual beneficiary was Cruz’s own campaign committee, not Sens. Kelly Loeffler or David Perdue, the two Republicans running for re-election in Georgia,” the report says.
