Reporters began to notice a distinct change in Senator Ted Cruz after he won a contentious Texas Senate race last November: The Senator had begun to grow a beard.

Cruz — who is one of the most recognizable members of the deliberative body — has never once sported facial hair since entering the national political arena a decade ago. The beginnings of a beard late in 2018 seemed a strange sight to many observers. Reporters and political commenters alike marveled at the growth of the salt and pepper mane on social media.


The Ted Cruz beard has now left the awkward stage and is in full-blown hefty face fur mode. The senator sported the beard during his official swearing-in ceremony, on a recent presidential visit to the Texas border and to a confirmation hearing for the new Attorney General nominee. (RELATED: Ted Cruz Explains How He’s Going To Make El Chapo Pay For The Border Wall)
