Hmm this isn’t looking good for Cruz.
check it out:

Sen. Ted Cruz was so upset with Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch that he “SLAMMED” her in a speech. But when the vote came around for final passage, the senator was AWOL. Instead of voting against this abominable nominee, Cruz was on a plane, headed to a fundraiser in Dallas.

It wouldn’t have mattered; Lynch was easily confirmed. But for a man who has put so much stock in the virtue of symbolic fights and votes, it felt discordant.
