O'Rourke Swings Through Conservative East Texas, Win Still a Longshot

Indicating the importance of the Senate seat, Trump has been campaigning for Ted Cruz, despite insulting the long-time Texas senator and members of his family during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to the New York Daily News. Of those likely voters polled, 51% say they'd vote for incumbent Cruz, while 45% say they are supporting challenger O'Rourke; 2% say they will vote for Libertarian Neal Dikeman, with the remaining 2% saying they will vote for someone else.

O'Rouke is now running for United States Senate in Texas against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz - a race that has drawn national attention in recent weeks.

O'Rourke, in contrast, has called for an end to the militarization of U.S. immigration enforcement, supports the DREAM Act, which ensures undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children can have a path to USA citizenship.

Standing with The Dallas Morning News, The Houston Chronicle, The San Antonio Express News and many others, we choose to endorse O'Rourke for Senate. Fellow Democrats have criticized O'Rourke for not sharing his bloated campaign war chest in a midterm election year when Democrats are hard focused on regaining majorities in congress.

Still, below the campaign chart in fine print is a note that clarifies that the actual top political spender - adding up to more than the spending of the first two combined - is Facebook itself. "I think you can see Republicans making a lot of noise about this and taking advantage of this caravan as an opportunity to have another conversation about border security". He also tells the crowd that O'Rourke will "take Texas all the way up" on 11/6. Texas is a deeply conservative state, but he's made inroads with voters.

As one Texan who seemingly came out of nowhere to be a recognized face on the national stage, Travis Scott knows what Beto O'Rourke is going through. O'Rourke gave his supporters the usual unscripted remarks, speaking in Spanish at times, but he didn't mention Cruz by name, or pick fights.

He said liberals have a more "widespread" anger.
