Ted Cruz Visits Amarillo's Sage Oil Vac

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz visited the Amarillo area this morning.

Cruz visited the Sage Oil Vac this morning. The appearance at the Amarillo business was one of the final stops on Cruz's recent tour of Texas businesses.

Following his visit, Cruz wrote in a statement that he was honored to be in Amarillo and elaborated on his visit to the plant.

"It’s an honor to visit the incredible men and women here at Sage Oil Vac, and to be joined by the dedicated community leaders of Amarillo," Senator Cruz said in a statement. "Everywhere I travel in Texas, the mandate is clear that in Washington we should be focusing on policies that encourage the creation of good-paying jobs, rising wages and expanded economic opportunity. And that continues to be my number-one priority in the Senate. We must continue our efforts to get government off the backs of the job creators and the hardworking men and women of this state so that Texas businesses can grow, innovate, and prosper."
