The Texas Senate race is heating up between incumbent Senator Ted Cruz (R) and Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke. O’Rourke and Cruz will hold thee debates before the November. A new poll shows that Senator Cruz only leads Rep. O’Rourke by four points. Cruz is obviously beginning to panic though as he went on Fox News to whine about Beto’s physical appearance.
Cruz jealously voiced concerns that he may not be as physically attractive as his Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke. He whined that he is being targeted by “wealthy liberals” from both coasts who have funneled their energy to support his opponent.
‘If [those liberals] could defeat one Republican in the country, it’d be me.’
About Beto, Cruz said:
‘Their favorite adjective is Kennedy-esque. They all talk about his hair and his teeth. They talk about no substance. Nothing about his record… they don’t talk about the fact that he’s trying to impeach the president.’
Senator Cruz has focused his race on culture and has warned Texans that Democrats want to turn the state into California “right down to tofu and silicon and dyed hair.”
During a rally, Cruz said:
‘The extreme left, they’re angry, they’re energized and they hate the president. And I got to tell you, that’s dangerous. That level of fury and rage, we underestimate that at our peril.’
Cal Jillson, a Southern Methodist University political science professor told CBS Dallas that Rep. O’Rourke must jump ahead in the polls by the beginning of October to have a legitimate shot at winning.
