Dear Congressperson,
I solved this puzzle - can you?

It’s Official!

Send it to Congress

It’s official!

Ted Cruz is running for the White House! Crosswords for Congress is born!

Senator Cruz’s announcement this week poached a startling number of lines originally drafted for the launch of this site. “Today, I want to talk to you about the promise of America.” (Dude stole my line.) “The power of the American people, when we rise up and stand for liberty, knows no bounds.” (My line again.) “Imagine millions of courageous crossword solvers rising up together to say, in unison, we demand our liberty!” (Totally my line!)


It’s simple: solve the crossword. It’s a fun one. It’s also, ohhh, a reasoned consideration of politicians such as Senator Cruz (see 56-Across).

When you’re done, click on one of the tabs below the grid to use Twitter or email and send the following message: “Dear Senator Cruz, I solved this puzzle – can you?”

(If you click the email tab, fill out the form provided. For “Message Subject,” write “Crosswords for Congress.” For “Message,” write “Dear Senator Cruz, I solved this puzzle – can you?” along with the link to For “Topic,” select “Animal Welfare” because, amazingly, there’s no “Crossword Puzzles” option.)
