As Twitchy reported last night, Sen. Ted Cruz declared it “great to be back in America” as he returned to Texas and a packed house to welcome him home. Tonight, Cruz attended a similar event in Arlington, Texas, where he promised not to speak for 21 hours, referring of course to his famous filibuster.
Cruz was reportedly greeted in Arlington with a standing ovation that lasted anywhere from 9 to 14 minutes.

Last night’s standing ovation in San Antonio was reported to be only 8 minutes, although there was “Green Eggs and Ham” cake at that event.
God bless Texas! God bless each and every one of you and thank you so much for your support and encouragement.—
