Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who voted to confirm President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, was confronted at an airport terminal Wednesday by several women heckling him for his support of the now-justice.
A video of the confrontation shows a woman asking Cruz: “You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the court is a victory for women?”
Cruz can be seen walking away from the women, who follow him with a camera rolling.
Turning to the camera at one point, Cruz said, “thank you for expressing your first amendment right,” and told the women, “God bless you.”

It was at least the second incident since Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct in which Cruz has been publicly confronted for supporting him.
Last month, Cruz and his wife were interrupted during dinner at a Washington D.C., restaurant by anti-Kavanaugh protesters, whose demonstrations that night forced them to leave the establishment.
Similar in-your-face protests of other Republican politicians have inspired GOP leadership to admonish Democrats for emboldening an “angry mob” of liberal opposition to the president and the party’s agenda.
Cruz is in the final weeks of a re-election bid in which he is facing off against Democrat Beto O’Rourke, who raised $38.1 million from July to September.
Most major polls on Thursday had Cruz leading that race, one of several key contests for Republicans, by anywhere between five and seven percentage points.
