Sen. Ted Cruz's Snapchat account went live on Monday, continuing the trend of lawmakers signing up for the millennial-dominated photo and video app.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) launched his official Senate Snapchat account Monday, featuring his tour of the Johnson Space Center in Houston for his first story. Cruz says in one @SenTedCruz snap that users can follow him “all across the great state of Texas.”

Cruz isn’t entirely new to Snapchat. He first joined in January with his @cruz4president username. Cruz also sponsored a geofilter mocking presidential candidate Donald Trump for missing the Republican primary debate before the Iowa caucus. The filter featured a duck with Trump’s notorious comb-over and the phrase “Ducking Donald.”

Trump refused to attend the debate after his clash with Fox reporter Megyn Kelly, who he said would not treat him “fairly.”  

Other candidates who were vying for the GOP presidential nomination, including former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), also joined Snapchat earlier this cycle.
