Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whose Senate seat could soon have a new occupant, played along Tuesday evening when a supporter at a campaign event shouted “Lock him up!” in reference to Cruz’s Democratic opponent, Beto O’Rourke.
“Well, you know, there’s a double-occupancy cell with Hillary Clinton,” Cruz said in Georgetown, Texas.
He added: “Y’all are gonna get me in trouble with that.”
