Something strange is happening – first, the Pentagon intercepted packages with Ricin, a deadly poison in them.
And now Ted Cruz’s campaign office seems to have been attacked with a white powdery substance.
As reported by the Daily Wire: First responders were called to the Houston campaign offices of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday after staff received an envelope containing a white powdery substance.
Officials dispatched a HazMat team along with police and firefighters after a campaign staffer opened the letter, according to The Weekly Standard.
On Twitter, the Houston Fire Department noted that two people had been taken to the hospital after being exposed to the unknown substance.
A spokesperson for the Cruz campaign told The Hill that neither of the people that were transported to the hospital worked for the campaign.
Two people were taken to the hospital after apparently being exposed to a white powdery substance in an office building at 3200 SW Fwy. The 9th floor of the Phoenix Tower has been evacuated as HFD HazMat is responding to the scene working to determine the nature of the substance.
