Cruz, O'Rourke Hold First Debate In Dallas

Cruz, O'Rourke Hold First Debate In Dallas

Cruz said that O'Rourke was "out of step" with Texans as a liberal.

"It is why some have called this", he concluded, "I think it is an apt description, the new Jim Crow".

O'Rourke in turn blasted Cruz for supporting massive deportations of illegal immigrants.

On Saturday, animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) handed out free barbecued tofu outside of a restaurant in Columbus, TX, where Republican Senator Ted Cruz held a event for his re-election campaign to the United States Senate.

Following the debate, O'Rourke told reporters that Cruz "has a tendency to mischaracterize a position" and was making him appear more politically more radical than he is. During the 2016 presidential race, the moderators reminded the audience, Mr. Trump savagely attacked Mr. Cruz as "Lying Ted", while Mr. Cruz characterized Mr. Trump as an inveterate liar himself. There were almost 45,000 "O'Rourke" tweets as well, and all three terms became top trends in the U.S. The tweets may lean toward O'Rourke, but as the congressman said onstage at Southern Methodist University, 50 percent of rural Texans don't have reliable access to broadband internet.




O'Rourke, who is challenging Sen.

Asked to respond, Cruz spokeswoman Emily Miller said the debate was the first time O'Rourke "has been directly confronted with his policies". Early on, for instance, the candidates squared off on gun control legislation and the 2nd Amendment. "Imagine the cost", O'Rourke said.

O'Rourke's candidacy was once viewed as the longest of long shots. Democrats have not elected a Democrat to the Senate in three decades.

If they win either chamber, much of President Donald Trump's agenda could be hamstrung and his administration would be subjected to greater scrutiny.

The UVA poll also revealed that Hispanic voters supported O'Rourke over Cruz by a ratio of about 2-to-1. He also showed on screen, however, a recent Quinnipiac University poll that shows Cruz leading O'Rourke by nine points, 54 percent to 45 percent.
