Ted Cruz is not only a U.S. senator and presidential candidate; he's also a gamer.

He tweeted a screenshot of his Candy Crush screen Thursday. He's on level 357, contrary to a Daily Beast report that he had hit level 217, which he told MSNBC in 2014). "The fruits of time between stops in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina," he said in a Facebook post.

Cruz told the Daily Beast he also plays "Plants vs. Zombies," "The Creeps!" and grew up playing "Galaga," "Space Invaders" and "Centipede."

"I play with my daughters," he said. "One of the fun things that I do with Caroline and Catherine is we get on the iPhone or the iPad and play games. Drives my wife crazy."
