WASHINGTON, DC -– U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today announced Paul Teller as his new deputy chief of staff, effective Thursday, January 16.

“Paul’s many years of experience working in Congress and his tireless work to advance conservative principles make him a tremendous addition to our team,” Sen. Cruz said. “I look forward to working with him to keep making Texans’ voices heard in Washington and to promote a positive policy agenda that will restore economic growth, rein in government overreach, and protect Americans’ personal liberties.”

Teller has earned the respect and admiration of conservative leaders across the country. He has spent his career fighting to limit the power of Washington over Americans’ everyday lives, defend the freedoms guaranteed under our Constitution, and passionately promote the priorities of our nation’s conservative grassroots movement.

"It is an honor and privilege to work for Sen. Cruz,” Teller said. “His leadership is truly motivating, and I can't wait to get started on our collaboration for liberty."

Teller has served in various positions on Capitol Hill for 14 years, most recently as the executive director of the Republican Study Committee (RSC). Prior to that, he was deputy director and legislative director for the RSC. He was also a staff member for the Committee on House Administration under Rep. Bill Thomas.

Teller earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Duke University and a Ph.D. in political science from American University. He lives in Chevy Chase, Maryland with his wife and two children.
