Cruz takes his humor to late night TV (CQ Roll Call File Photo).
After a weekend in South Carolina and New Hampshire, Sen. Ted Cruz took his act to 30 Rock Monday.
The Texas Republican, who is contemplating a bid for the White House, appeared as a guest on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers.” The host happens to be from the first-in-the-nation primary state. Cruz was back in the building Tuesday morning for more serious programming.
“Historically, we have found when senators from Texas come to New Hampshire, it’s because they want to run for president,” Meyers said. “It’s that or you want to buy like cheap liquor at our liquor stores.”
“Well, you know tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day,” Cruz quipped in response.
