Although we have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Ted Cruz, we ultimately think he’s doing a good job as a Senator. He believes in strong borders and he has been pretty supportive of the President to this point.
However, new reports are coming out that he is going to have a DEMOCRAT challenger in 2018!
Here’s the full report from The Hill:
“Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) on Friday officially jumped into the race to take on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in 2018.
O’Rourke is the first announced Democrat running to unseat Cruz in what will be a steep uphill battle in a reliably red state. The Texas Democrat has been crisscrossing the state over the past four months gauging support for a statewide bid.
He made Friday’s announcement from his hometown of El Paso, which he has represented in Congress since 2013.
Before he can take on Cruz, O’Rourke will need to win the Democratic primary. Fellow Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro (D), a rising star in the party, is still considering a bid. His political director said he will make a decision “in the coming weeks.”
Any Democrat who emerges faces a tough fight to unseat Cruz. No Democrat has won a Senate election in Texas since 1988. And while Cruz has irked those within his party, he’s been able to expand his national profile and donor base after unsuccessfully running for the GOP presidential nomination.”
What do you think? Does he have a chance against Ted Cruz??
