Senator Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi were chased out of a Washington, D.C. restaurant Monday evening by protesters who heckled him with chants and demands to know his position on Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

In videos posted to Twitter, a group of activists can be seen confronting the Texas Republican and his wife, Heidi, as the couple makes their way to their table.

The videos have garnered more than 1.2 million views since they were posted late Monday.

WIBC host Tony Katz condemned the protesters during his afternoon radio show, Tuesday:

“You’re out having a bite to eat with your family, and you’re harassed by a mob of angry protesters. Instead of voting you out because they don’t agree with your policies, what they do is chase you out of a restaurant. It’s despicable.”
