Ted Cruz Likes To Call Up His Wife Randomly To Sing Her Broadway Show Tunes

Heidi Crus, the wife of Texas senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruz, has revealed that her husband likes to sing show tunes to her in order to relax before presidential debates, reports the New York Times.

“He’ll call me and just sing me a Broadway tune,” Mrs. Cruz told a crowd in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

It can apparently happen without much warning, “right before one of these debates” or “in a stressful moment in a state,” she said.

The New York Times adds:

It is usually well received — “he never ceases to defuse a stressful moment with a moment of levity,” Mrs. Cruz said — but not always.

“I’m thinking, ‘I’m on a finance call right now,’ ” Mrs. Cruz recalled. “Do you really need to be doing this?”
