WATCH: Cruz reacts to Abbott announcing Dems who left Texas will be arrested upon return

Appearing on Fox News, Senator Ted Cruz reacted to Texas governor Greg Abbott announcing Democrats who fled Texas will be arrested upon return.

Abbott said the Democrat lawmakers who left the state  to deny Republicans a quorum to convene a special legislative session and consider a sweeping elections reform bill will be arrested upon their return.

“This is, at the end of the day, politics, and they need to get back to doing their jobs,” Cruz says.
