Beto O’Rourke revives Trump’s brutal nickname for Ted Cruz during debate

Representatives Joseph P. Kennedy III and Beto O’Rourke embraced Saturday in McAllen Texas. O’Rourke is running for the US Senate seat held by Ted Cruz

O'Rourke, whose energetic bid to unseat Cruz has garnered a crush of national media attention and historic fundraising numbers, pushed back against Cruz more aggressively than at any other point in the campaign, even reprising the nickname bestowed on the GOP candidate by Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"Cruz accepted $120,000 from the Political Actions Committees who represent the corporate interests that benefited from this tax cut", O'Rourke charged.

Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke aggressively cast Republican Sen.

Regarding tariffs, Cruz said he's against tariffs & trade war and said he's made the case to President Trump to expand exports. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, right, take part in a debate for the Texas U.S. Senate, Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018, in San Antonio.

YouTube outage across the world, company says working on resolving issue

Democrats have long dreamed about a growing Hispanic population helping to flip Texas from red to blue and shaking up the electoral map.

Cruz, who recent polls show is maintaining a high single-digits lead in the race against O'Rourke, shot back at his Democratic challenger. O'Rourke set a Senate record for a single three-month period with $38 million in third-quarter donations, more than triple the haul for Cruz.

Tuesday's debate, the second between the two Senate contenders and the last scheduled before the November 6 election, comes at a critical time. Cruz countered that the movement "had done an incredible amount of good for this country" and that people of both sexes need to be protected from harassment and abuse. 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. Cruz has been a full-throated supporter of the president he battled during the presidential race two years ago, and hopes that the joint appearance will assuage some conservatives around the state who were angered by the past animosity. He highlighted Cruz's 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, saying Cruz hasn't visited all of the 254 counties in Texas, "but has been to all 99 in Iowa".
