It’s all water under the bridge now, as Cruz fights to hold his Senate seat in deep-red Texas and the President struggles to keep a Republican majority in the Senate.
On Thursday, Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to the President, will join Cruz in his hometown of Houston for a visit to the Johnson Space Center.
The NASA visit is official business, not a campaign event; Ivanka Trump has thus far largely aimed to avoid entanglement in the 2018 midterm races, opting instead to travel the country touting tax reform, the administration’s working family agenda, workforce development and other initiatives, including STEM education.
And the President has vowed to pull out all stops in support of his former rival.
