Reports have come in that a teenage girl at the home of Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s has been hospitalized after self-inflicted wounds. The incident occurred on Tuesday night and when police arrived they determined that there was no criminal activity, KHOU reported.

Authorities said that one person was taken to the hospital with injuries but that they were expected to recover. ABC 13 said that the victim of the self-inflicted sharp object wounds was the senator’s 14-year-old daughter, but this has not been confirmed.

The outlet continued:

Police could not say whether the call involved a member of Cruz’s family. The Texas Republican has two daughters. ABC13 reached out to Sen. Cruz’s office for comment. Representatives said the police activity involved a family matter. Regarding a question about one of the senator’s daughters, they said that she’s OK and there were no serious injuries.

The senator’s office called the incident a “family matter.”

“This is a family matter and thankfully their daughter is okay,” his representatives said to ABC News.

“There were no serious injuries. The family requests the media respect their daughter’s privacy at this time,” they said.

Support came to the Cruz family on Twitter.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the entire @tedcruz family. I pray for his daughters’ full recovery,” Rep. Mayra Flores said.

“Praying for Senator Ted Cruz and his entire family, now let’s leave it at that and respect their privacy,” Brigitte Gabriel said.

“A gentle reminder to #ClickWithCompassion on days like today. it’s sad when anyone is suffering so much they don’t want to take their next breath. and utterly heartbreaking when it’s a young person. i hope ted cruz’s daughter gets supportive help. #MentalHealthMatters,” Monica Lewinsky said.

Sen. Ted Cruz has revealed his plans for 2024 and beyond.

The Texas Republican said in November that he plans to run for reelection in the Lone Star state in two years, but he is still keeping his presidential ambitions open less than a week after former President Donald Trump announced his intent to seek the 2024 GOP nomination.

Cruz, who was reportedly well received at the event, made his remarks at the annual conference of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which traditionally has marked the beginning of the GOP nomination process. The announcement came four days after Trump said he would run again.

He finished his speech by discussing his tough 2018 reelection battle and sought donations for his 2024 reelection bid, the Washington Examiner reported.

In a press conference following his speech, Cruz reiterated that he would seek a third Senate term.

“I’m running for reelection in the Senate. I’m focused on the battles in the United States Senate,” Cruz told reporters. “We need to stand and fight against these policies that are inflicting so much harm on Americans across this country.”

But at the same time, he did not entirely rule out a presidential run.

“You can consider whatever you like,” Cruz said after a reporter asked if running for reelection means he shouldn’t be considered a presidential contender any longer. “There will be plenty of time to discuss 2024 presidential. I get that that is a lot of fun in the media to do. There will be plenty of time for that.”

Cruz managed to finish second behind Trump in 2016, as both emerged from a crowded GOP field that included former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who failed to gain traction among the Republican electorate despite his campaign spending $130 million.

The Examiner noted further:

The senator has described the experience as among the most fun he has ever had in his life, other than losing, and Republicans have a history of picking the runner-up the next time the party holds an open primary. Those two factors would suggest a Cruz presidential campaign is in the offing. But Trump’s decision to run has complicated the senator’s plans.

For several months, Cruz has said he would make no decision until he knew what Trump was going to do, signaling he was not in a hurry to engage in another fight for the nomination with the former president. Trump made his White House plans official on Tuesday evening in a speech from Mar-a-Lago, his residence and private social club in Palm Beach, Florida.
