Texas Democrats Julian and Joaquin Castro Call on Ted Cruz to Resign


Texas Democrats, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) and his brother Julián Castro — a former Democrat presidential candidate who served as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development during the Obama administration — called on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to resign following the chaos that descended upon the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.

“He has conducted himself shamelessly, and I think he has done this because he believes it’s the only way, the only chance that he has to win the Republican nomination for president,” Joaquin Castro told the Texas Tribune on Wednesday.

Both he and his brother explicitly called for Cruz to resign on Wednesday via Twitter:
