Before the older than dirt, and really no longer funny NBC review show Saturday Night Live took a pot shot at him, Texas Republican Dan Crenshaw was not a known entity in American politics. Now, thanks to that little incident, Americans everywhere know who he is.
Crenshaw, who lost his right eye in a 2012 IED attack in Afghanistan, was mocked by Pete Davidson during the show’s “Weekend Update” segment Saturday, which led to a major backlash.
Yep, he’s the handsome man with the eye patch. And the people of the second congressional district in Texas have made the man their newest congressman.
Crenshaw, 34, went on to capture 53 percent of the vote in Texas’s 2nd congressional district compared to Democrat Todd Litton’s 44.4 percent, according to Politico.
It’s almost like there was no cheating in that race.
Texans are hard working, love their country and believe in the American ideal; the greatest set of ideas for a free people that the world has ever known. As a team that was the message we spread for the last year.
Thank you for your dedication and trust. See you in Washington! pic.twitter.com/nocUg0ycqJ

Now that he’s headed to Washington, D.C., Crenshaw said he would like to see more veterans serving in Congress.
“They started out serving their country, so there’s an element of trust there, an element that you can actually work together with and maybe find the things that we agree on and go forward with those,” Crenshaw said.
“I think the more veterans in Congress, the more likely it is we can do that and find issues we can work together on.”
The military, after all, is a great training ground for how to maneuver through the political baloney and somehow succeed. As Crenshaw said, these are people who have committed to serve. It would be beneficial to the nation for them to continue in that capacity.
