Ted Cruz Themed Coloring Book Selling Fast

AUSTIN (CBSDFW/AP) – He’s known for coloring outside the lines in the staid U.S. Senate. Now children of all ages can color-in U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.

Just in time for the holidays, a St. Louis company is offering a coloring book featuring the Texas tea party darling called “Cruz To The Future.”

The publisher, Really Big Coloring Books (yes, that is their name) said Thursday that the book is in its third printing in six days. The first run of around 10,000 copies sold out in barely 24 hours, and the second went nearly as fast.

According to the online review: “The Cruz to the Future book is a non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward Ted Cruz became a U.S. Senator and details, through his quotes and public information his ideas for what he believes will help America grow.”

Cruz didn’t cooperate with the book, with shows him hunting, given his ardent support of the Second Amendment.

It also shows his recent, 21-hour speech on the Senate floor opposing the White House-backed health care law.

The same company produced a wildly popular 2008 coloring book on President Barack Obama’s inauguration.
