Texas Republicans auctioned off a copy of "Green Eggs and Ham" signed by Sen. Ted Cruz for $1,000 on behalf of the Republican Party of Bexar County during their annual Lincoln Day Dinner.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, a couple bought the book for their 8-year-old daughter.

Two other copies additionally raised a combined $1,800.

Cruz read the book on the Senate floor Sept. 25 during an 21-hour-long filibuster against a bill to fund the government because it included funding for Obamacare.
