Rep. Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Ted Cruz debate in San Antonio
19 October, 2018, 10:34
President Donald Trump will star at a rally in Houston on October 22 to help Sen.
Democrat Beto O'Rourke abandoned his usual message of unity and optimism and laid into Ted Cruz, hoping to reverse polls that show him fading against the Republican incumbent during the second debate of a Texas Senate race that has become one of the nation's most closely watched.
Cruz waved off the aggression, contending that O'Rourke's "pollsters have told him to come out on the attack". "It's why the president called him "Lyin" Ted, ' and it's why the nickname stuck ― because it's true". There have been occasional polls showing O'Rourke closing the gap, but those rays of hope are often dimmed quickly - the Real Clear Politics average shows Cruz leading handily. During the 2016 presidential race, Trump re-tweeted an unflattering photo of Cruz's wife and suggested that his Cuban-born father had a hand in John F. Kennedy's assassination.
"Watched the debate last night & Beto O'Rourke, who wants higher taxes and far more regulations, is not in the same league with Ted Cruz & what the great people of Texas stand for & want". A Democrat hasn't won statewide in Texas in 24 years. Trump seemingly moved past his rivalry with Cruz in 2016, when the GOP primary competitor famously declined to endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention.
Early voting begins Monday. "The tariffs that the president has levied, the trade wars that he has led us into, is hurting no state more than it's hurting Texas".

In the clip - which was funded by the "Fire Cruz" PAC - a man sitting at a diner says, "Everybody I know in Texas likes Whataburger". He struggled at times to retort while Cruz, an experienced debater and former litigator, painted him as anti-police and out of step with the right-leaning Texas electorate. Cruz wants to participate in a previously scheduled townhall featuring just O'Rourke in the U.S. -Mexico border city of McAllen on Thursday night, but it's unclear if that will come together in time.
"Ted Cruz is for Ted Cruz", he said, adding the senator's re-election campaign was "based on fear".
O'Rourke shot back: "It's really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus after your last six years in the U.S. Senate".
O'Rourke also reprised his attack on Cruz for focusing on his presidential ambitions so soon after he was elected to the U.S. Senate, and criticized the tone of his Republican opponent's campaign. You were all talk and no action.
