Cruz argued that people love 'Duck Dynasty' because it shows a family open about its faith.

"The reason that so many Americans love Duck Dynasty is because it represents the America usually ignored or mocked by liberal elites: a family that loves and cares for each other, believes in God, and speaks openly about their faith," Cruz wrote.

Cruz has expressed his love for the reality show before. He talked about the "God-fearing" family "who love guns" during his September talkathon on the Senate floor.
