Seven months ago, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was a top contender for his party's presidential nomination.
Wednesday, he was making get-out-the-vote calls on behalf of his one-time rival, nominee Donald Trump.
Dallas Morning News photojournalist G.J. McCarthy documented the Texas senator's visit to the Tarrant County Republican Party headquarters in Fort Worth.
Much like any other political volunteer, Cruz "didn't have much luck" getting a live human on the line, McCarthy noted in a tweet.
Instead, the politician left several voicemails for Texas voters.
