From FNC Chad Pergram:
Cruz walks out of Mandela ceremony when Castro speaks
Per Pergram-Capitol Hill
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the only senator in the Congressional delegation to Nelson Mandela’s memorial, walked out of the service in South Africa when Cuban leader Raul Castro spoke.
From Cruz’s spokesman Sean Rushton:
Senator Cruz very much hopes that Castro learns the lessons of Nelson Mandela. For decades, Castro has wrongly imprisoned and tortured countless innocents. Just as Mandela was released after 27 years in prison, Castro should finally release his political prisoners; he should hold free elections, and once and for all set the Cuban people free.
