Fun facts about Ted Cruz

2016 Presidential candidate Ted Cruz’s father Rafael Cruz was born in Cuba. At the age of 14, he joined the Cuban Revolution eventually suffering abuse from the regime of Fulgencio Batista. He eventually fled to the United States before Fidel Castro took power. While he had joined Castro’s cause, he apparently said he had no idea that Castro was a communist and became a critic of his regime in the years to follow.
