Several hours of b-roll was uploaded to YouTube Wednesday morning featuring long interviews with family members of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz.
The hours of interviews uploaded by “Ted Cruz for Senate” feature interviews with Cruz’s wife Heidi, his mother, his father, his aunt, and several nieces and nephews.
The interviews feature some interesting tidbits about Cruz: His family dressed him as a bald eagle one 4th of July. Cruz’s cousin made him play with Barbie dolls. His dad says Cruz was once bit by an octopus at the beach.
It is unclear why the videos were uploaded.
Campaigns legally can’t coordinate with PACs but often avoid the law by posting hours of b-roll of interviews and soundless footage of the candidate doing things like walking around and meeting with voters to get around the law.
