Heidi Cruz Opens Up About Husband's 'Fun' Side & 'Incredible Group of Friends'
Heidi Cruz opened up tonight on how she came to fall in love with her husband Ted.
Cruz, a California native who grew up with missionary parents, met the now-Texas senator while the two worked together on the 2000 Bush for President campaign.
“Ted has a very rare combination that I spotted immediately, which is that he has a deep, deep intelligence, but at the same time, he’s a lot of fun," she said.
As the issue of “likability” has increasingly grown in the race for the White House, some critics have suggested that Cruz is unpopular with his colleagues in the Senate and from law school.
Megyn asked Cruz for her take on the claims about her husband.
“One of the things that attracted me most to Ted Cruz was all of his friends,” Cruz responded.
“If you’re dating someone and you don’t like their friends, you might want to think about that. Ted had an incredible group – has an incredible group – of friends who are thoughtful people, who are contributing greatly to this country, who do hard things, because it’s the right thing to do.
So this likability thing really is, I think, a misnomer for people who aren’t getting much done.”
