    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said “under no circumstances” should the so-called migrant caravan be allowed to cross into the United States. Partial transcript as follows: BRENNAN: You were very critical of the Obama administration for taking action via executive fiat as you said, you called it dangerous. This week President Trump on immigration has issued orders bypassing Congress to restrict how migrants crossing the border illegally can claim asylum. Are you OK with that now? CRUZ: Well I’m still studying this specific immigration order, but I’ll tell you look, here’s my view on executive...

    The Dallas Morning News’s editorial board called on Democratic Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke on Friday to provide clarification regarding where he stands on the migrant caravan that is heading towards the U.S border. O’Rourke, who is trying to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, has been dodging the issue, despite immigration and border security overwhelmingly being the top issues for voters in Texas. Cruz urged reporters on Friday to probe O’Rourke into what he intends to do if elected to the Senate on Nov. 6. “Two basic [questions] every reporter should ask Beto today,” Cruz tweeted. “(1) should the “caravan” be...
  • Beto O’Rourke: Michael Avenatti ‘Does Not Represent’ Democrats

    The Huffington Post ^ | November 2, 2018 | Andy Campbell
    Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke doesn’t seem too keen on the tough-guy shtick adopted by some of his fellow Democrats. In an interview with New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, O’Rourke took at shot at celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, arguing that the attorney, who regularly battles President Donald Trump on Twitter, “does not represent” Democrats. Avenatti is one among a chorus of Democrats who have twisted Michelle Obama’s “When they go low, we go high” credo from the 2016 election in an effort to appear tougher against Trump and the GOP this time around. Avenatti’s version: “When they go low,...

    Former CIA Director John Brenna announced his support for Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is battling Sen. Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race. He wrote: “As a former resident of Texas and a proud UT-Austin alumnus, I believe Beto O’Rourke is the type of individual Texans need in the U.S. Senate to represent their best interests. He has the integrity, intellect, and character that is in short supply in Congress. Vote!” The tweet brought a quick blast from Cruz on Twitter, who responded: “John Brennan — who publicly admitted voting for the Communist Party candidate for president in 1976...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R) suggested on Friday that staffers working for his opponent in the Texas Senate race, Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D), were using campaign funds to help "people coming here illegally." Cruz also called on O'Rourke to say whether he supported allowing a migrant of caravans to "cross illegally" into Texas. "I thought it was a joke, until video broke this morning of his campaign staffers taking campaign money and apparently using it to give to people coming here illegally," Cruz said in a speech, according to a clip posted by a Cruz campaign official on Friday. "There are...

    Dominic Chacon, a Field Manager for the O’Rourke campaign in El Paso, Texas, expressed his concern in getting supplies to the caravan migrants. “I’m going to go get some food right now, like just some stuff to drop off, cause they need food and blankets,” said Chacon. “Do you know of anybody that has blankets and s**t?” We got permission to give them some of these waters, so we can take some of the waters too.” Anapaula Themann, a field organizer for the O’Rourke campaign, insists that the purchase of supplies for the illegal aliens remain a secret in a...

    since 2014, which is likely good news for Democratic Senate hopeful Beto O’Rourke. With just one week until the midterm elections, polls indicate that the El Paso congressman and Texas senatorial candidate has a 5-point gap to bridge in order to catch his competitor, incumbent Senator Ted Cruz. But O’Rourke has long insisted that a large chunk of his supporters, Texans under 30 and Hispanic voters, don’t show up in those polling numbers. New data from Target Smart, a political data firm, would appear to back his claims. In a recent interview, O’Rourke told CBS News that a large turnout...

    Consider this a supplement to all the coverage we've done of Texas' midterm election and all the voters who've shown up early to cast ballots. Like Creatine, whey protein or Weight Gain 4000, it shouldn't be taken without considering the warning label: These numbers might mean something, or they might end up meaning nothing at all. Texas is dealing with voter turnout that doesn't look like any midterm that's happened in this last couple of decades, so speculate at your own risk With that out of the way, let's take a look at some of the numbers behind Texas early...

    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz leads Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke by 51% to 45% among likely voters in their race to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate, according to a University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll released Friday.

Some 51% of independent voters backed O’Rourke, while Cruz drew 39%, according to the new UT-TT poll. “If you look for Republican defections to Beto O’Rourke, they’re not there. But the independents break to...
