Ted Cruz Tries to Smear Beto O'Rourke with Barbecued Tofu

Womp Womp Left Wing Celebrity Trails Ted Cruz By Nine Points in New Poll

A Quinnipiac poll out this week showed Cruz up by nine points. But O'Rourke has focused heavily on courting women, Latinos and young voters, has developed a strong following on social media, and has proven to be a fund-raising dynamo, outpacing Cruz's efforts.

There have been innumerable attempts to show how Trump managed to take over the GOP, and why figures like Cruz, an avatar for the intellectual vanguard of the conservative movement's elite, adapted themselves to his takeover so easily.

"I think Congressman O'Rourke is passionate, he is energetic", Cruz then told the crowd. The Club for Growth is investing in the race on Cruz's behalf, but O'Rourke has campaigned against PAC money and outside spending so having the party swoop in with millions in television advertising might well be counterproductive.

"True to form", O'Rourke replied.

The debate will be a major test for O'Rourke, a former member of a punk rock band who has become a cause célèbre for many Democrats who believe he can be an effective messenger for progressive policies like marijuana legalization and raising the minimum wage. It was moderated by NBC 5 political reporter Julie Fine and Dallas Morning News political writer Gromer Jeffers.

"They're entitled to their opinion and I'm entitled to mine."@WillieNelson on the criticism he received from some fans because of his support for Texas U.S. Senate Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke: "I've been supporting Democrats all my life". Ted Cruz traded blows in an atmosphere that somehow managed to convey the tight race pollsters say is unfolding and yet steer clear of any mudslinging.

O'Rourke denied that and offered another confrontational retort as Cruz challenged him to name a judge he has supported who would defend the Second Amendment.

"Senator Cruz, the last time you stood for election was in 2016", said the moderator.

"We can make our schools safer by having officers protect them", Cruz said.

"Thoughts and prayers, Sen".

Police arrest suspect in fatal stabbing of Logan Circle jogger
Martinez is 12 years older than Crawford, 23, but stood only 5ft 1in tall and weighed 106 lbs according to police. While Crawford has a criminal record, police say there is no indication of violence in his past at this time.

The Washington Post fact-checked the claim and said it couldn't be rated because it was unclear if the reference meant that O'Rourke believed unarmed black children were being killed generally, or killed by police.

He said there has been a war on a police officers for several years, and it's troubling to see a lawmaker as prominent as O'Rourke seemingly side against law enforcement.

"While I may like one of them personality-wise better than the other", said Lionberger. "I will pray for anyone in harm's way, but I will also do something about it".

O'Rourke, meanwhile, disputed reports that he tried to flee the scene of a 1998 drunken-driving arrest in El Paso. A lot of people listen to what he has to say.

"Listen", O'Rourke went on to Cruz, "If the president attacks you personally, your wife, your father, how you respond is your business". O'Rourke, on the other hand, called for Blasey-Ford to be heard.
