Cruz Skipped Vote Draws Paul’s Ire

With public viewership of the State of the Union address in decline, members of Congress are following suit — and criticizing each other for missing votes.
Of the four members of Congress running for president, only two showed up. While Sens. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., were in attendance — and a part of the welcoming committee — Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rand Paul, R-Ky., skipped the speech.
