DALLAS (KRLD) -  Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Democrat U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke ran into each other this week at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, almost a week after a hard-fought campaign between both politicians that ended with a Cruz victory. 

According to Texas A&M student Tiffany Easter, she was waiting to board a flight to Washington D.C. when she noticed both O'Rourke and Cruz were about to board the same flight.

“Beto noticed Ted sitting down and walked over to congratulate him on his re-election campaign,” Easter wrote on her Facebook page. “It was the first time they had seen each other since the election, and the entire conversation was both of them talking about how they could move forward together.”

Easter was then able to get a photo with both of politicians. 

“Today, we literally watched them come together,” Easter wrote. “This is America. This is good. This is wholesome. This is why I love and do what I do.”
