Cruz Highlights Father in Latest TV Ad

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz's father, Rafeal Cruz, is the star of his son's latest election ad for television. 

"The promise of freedom drove me to overcome torture in Cuba and come to Texas," Rafeal Cruz says in the ad.

Cruz is running against Democrat Paul Sadler, Libertarian John Jay Myers and Green Party candidate David Collins to replace U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, a Republican. Both Sadler and Myers have also released television ads in the past month.
