Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is reportedly on the way back to Texas after photos of him flying to Cancun went viral this week.

Punchbowl News's Jake Sherman dug up flight records showing that someone with a name similar to Cruz's had booked a flight from Cancun to Houston.

According to the records, Cruz narrowly missed his chance to upgrade to businesses class, presumably leaving the senator in economy-class seating.

News of Cruz's apparent return comes soon after Fox News confirmed that he had traveled to Cancun despite a massive power outage in Texas.
