O'Rourke says Cruz mischaracterizes his comments

O'Rourke pushed back.

O'Rourke has earned this rating, but getting the last couple of points to overtake Cruz and win the seat will be hard though not utterly impossible. Citing state and local police reports, the Houston Chronicle reported last month that a witness said he tried to flee. Cruz are just not going to cut it anymore. "I'm sorry you don't like thoughts and prayers", Cruz said. "I will pray for anyone in harm's way, but I will also do something about it".

The debate was feisty from the opening question, which was about whether "Dreamers" - young people who were brought to the country illegally as children - should be given a path to citizenship. The Democrat responded by saying he would work with anyone at anytime, including the president.

"We're seeing nationally socialists like Bernie Sanders, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and, indeed, Congressman Beto O'Rourke advocating for those same policies", Cruz said.

A Democrat in Texas hasn't been elected to statewide office since 1994, the longest such political losing streak in the nation.

I didn't play with Davis. "The Bills can absolutely attempt to fight that, and some sort of arbitrator would need to rule". Davis made it clear that money is not worth his physical or mental health and happiness.

Cruz's backhanded compliment - and O'Rourke's curt response - was a fitting coda to an hourlong debate that put on display several of the candidates' biggest differences on issues like standing for the National Anthem, immigration and guns. Ted Cruz, contradicted police reports Friday by denying he tried to flee the scene of a 1998 drunken vehicle crash.

Cruz and O'Rourke are scheduled to debate two more times before Election Day. Cruz said it's a slap in the face to veterans.

"That injustice. continues to persist today", O'Rourke said.

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.

"There is no better people than those of us here in this state ... to rewrite our immigration laws in our own image", O'Rourke said. "No one wants to do any of that".

Texas hasn't had a Democratic senator in 25 years, and O'Rourke has more than a fighting chance at bucking the trend. Cruz dismissed many such visits as photo-ops. Once considered a safe seat for Cruz, recent polls show the candidates running within single digits of each other. O'Rourke frequently complained that Cruz was misrepresenting his positions - at one point accusing the incumbent Republican of "slander". "Right now, today, I don't know what happened that evening".

That ignored Cruz drawing the ire of many Texas conservatives for refusing to endorse Trump during the 2016 Republican National Convention.

Cruz may like to think he picked Texans over himself in siding with Trump.

Things are likely to stay nasty in coming weeks. 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.

"True to form", O'Rourke replied.
