"The story of @sentedcruz's origin begins in Matanzas, a quiet seaside town on the north coast of Cuba, where his father, Rafael, grew up along a dirt road shaded with plantain trees. Since @sentedcruz was a boy, he has said, all he wanted to do was "fight for liberty" — a yearning that he says was first kindled when he heard his father's tales of fighting as a rebel leader in #Cuba in the 1950s. But the family narrative that has provided such inspirational fire and biographical heft to the Republican candidate's speeches, debate performances and memoir is, his father's Cuban contemporaries say, an embroidered one. @lisettepoole photographed #Matanzas and other sites from stories the Cruz family has told of Rafael's Cuba."
