Campaign fundraising mail from Senator Ted Cruz is rubbing some Texans the wrong way.
The campaign mailers look like an official summons from your county government.
Turns out it’s a common, legal tactic for campaigns to raise money and reach voters. The Cruz for Senate campaign has sent out millions of similar mailers.
Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman from the Ted Cruz campaign for Senate tells KXAN, “Out of hundreds of thousands of mailers to the Austin area targeting likely supporters – clearly labeled on the front with “Ted Cruz for Senate” – there were a few complaints that came not to us but to the local media. Our mail efforts have been both effective and critical to identifying and engaging our supporters, and getting them involved in our campaign efforts to keep Texas strong.”
