Republican Presidential candidate Ted Cruz sold off all of his shares in oil major Chevron at the end of last year, according to transaction filings with the US Senate.
According to reports, the politician had done so as he needed the liquidity.
The sales of the shares took place on two separate occasions – once in October and the other in November.
A spokesman for the Texan Senator’s campaign said none of the funds went towards his presidential campaign.
The disclosures show that Cruz had invested between $50,000 and $100,000 in the company.
