Time Looks Back on Cruz’s Freshman ’13 (Video)

It’s been a whirlwind year for Sen. Ted Cruz, and while he didn’t finish first as Time’s Person of the Year in 2013, the magazine’s editors thought enough of the tea party favorite to compile the “highlights” in a video.

“Ted Cruz’s 2013 in Three Minutes” chronicles the Texas Republican’s most “upworthy” moments since he stepped onto the floor at the Capitol on Jan. 3.

From his accusations that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was “hiding something” and his scrutinizing of the country’s policy on drones, to the length and levity of his 21-hour anti-Obamacare filibuster and his relative fall from grace amid the government shutdown, it’s clear Cruz made his mark in the year 2013, even though he couldn’t beat out the pope.

HOH is itching to see what the junior senator comes up with next year.
