On Thursday afternoon, a staffer at the Ted Cruz for President campaign headquarters in Houston opened a letter. Upon opening, a suspicious white substance was revealed.

The incident happened at approximately 3:14 pm Central time and authorities were called to the scene.

The NBC affiliate, KPRC, tweeted about the incident.

Catherine Frazier, the national press secretary for the Cruz campaign, said,

“Today, a staff member in our Houston office opened a letter that contained a white substance. The office followed standard protocol, immediately notifying local authorities. The FBI, their HazMat team and City of Houston Fire Department came to the scene and tested the substance. It was found to be non-toxic, and has been taken away by the FBI for further testing.”

The scene was cleared at 4:45 pm Central with no reported injuries. The substance was determined to be non-toxic.

This comes less than a week after Pastor Tim Remington of Couer d’Alene, Idaho was shot one day praying with Ted Cruz and delivering the invocation at a rally in Idaho. The pastor was critical wounded with non-life-threatening injuries after being shot from behind numerous times. Authorities believe the shooting was not politically motivated.
