    At least 77,000 people have signed up for President Trump’s Houston rally on Monday to support incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who is locked in the Texas Senate battle with Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke. The Houston Chronicle reported that Houston police will be “fully mobilized” for the rally. Attendees must have tickets to enter and will be admitted in the order that they line up, the report said. "Keep in mind that once the capacity is met, you won't get in whether you have a ticket or not," an officer said. More than 77,800 people had signed up for the...

    President Donald Trump tried to stoke fears of socialism Friday as he bashed Rep. Beto O'Rourke, the Democrat pushing to upset Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in red Texas. Ahead of his Monday visit to Houston, Trump called the 46-year-old representative a "total lightweight compared to Ted Cruz" who "comes nowhere near representing the values and desires" of Texans. He suggested O'Rourke wants to "turn Texas into Venezuela" — deploying rhetoric he has used in an attempt to portray Democrats as dangerous leftists as the GOP tries to defend its congressional majorities on Nov. 6.

    Carly Fiorina said on Thursday that President Donald Trump has reached “a new low” with his recent attacks on Stormy Daniels, a porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and has sued him for defamation. “I think the habit of insulting one’s political enemies is unfortunately long standing in this country, and he has brought it to a new low ― a fine art,” Fiorina told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “There’s no question that in politics personal insults work and they rile people up,” Fiorina said, adding that she thinks the insult “diminishes” the Oval Office....

    The repeated calls from top Democrats leaders and influential leftists to harass and even attack conservatives and Republicans are having their effect. GOP officials and conservatives have been attacked and threatened anywhere and everywhere. And the attacks aren’t just aimed at national figures such as Senator Ted Cruz, who was driven from a restaurant by #MeToo vigilantes during the confirmation hearings of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Leftists are attacking state and local GOP officials as well. Meanwhile, unhinged university professors have joined top Democrats in calling for an end to civility.
  • The Embarrassing Spectacle of Betomania

    Attention, journalists of America: Time is running out! You have under three weeks left to publish your last batch of over-the-top pre-election puff pieces on Texas Democrat/cross-country liberal sensation/wing-and-a-prayer Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke! It is here that we must face the difficult truth: Barring a GOP-related disaster of some sort, O’Rourke — he of that ineffable “cool factor” and “special sauce,” at least according to easily impressed columnists at the Washington Post — is likely to lose big. According to the latest polls, Senator Ted Cruz leads him by anywhere between seven and nine points. Tuesday’s debate between the two,...

    President Trump’s campaign has moved next week’s rally with Sen. Ted Cruz to a bigger venue in Texas after citing an “unprecedented” demand for tickets. Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted the venue change Thursday, saying the response for tickets to Monday’s rally in Houston has been "HUGE and unprecedented." The campaign rally will now be held at the Toyota Center, which can seat up to 19,000 people for concerts. The previous venue, NRG Arena, holds about 8,000 people. Trump announced last month he would hold a “major rally” with Cruz at “the biggest stadium in Texas we can...

    The Texas Democratic Party asked noncitizens to register to vote, sending out applications to immigrants with the box citizenship already checked “Yes,” according to complaints filed Thursday asking prosecutors to see what laws may have been broken. . . The Texas secretary of state’s office said it received complaints from immigrants and from relatives of dead people who got mailings asking them to register. Spokesman Sam Taylor said it was “a pretty large volume of calls.”

    A top Hollywood publicist says the excitement in Los Angeles over Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke is at a level he hasn't seen for a national liberal politician in years. Danny Deraney, whose clientele has included A-listers like Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Madonna, told NBC News in another profile of O'Rourke that he has effectively swept the famously progressive town off its feet: Danny Deraney, a Hollywood publicist who has worked with celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Madonna, said he hasn't seen Los Angeles this excited about a national politician in years.

    The televised debate on Tuesday between Ted Cruz and Beto O'Rourke was a massacre. O'Rourke has been reluctant to debate Cruz from the beginning, and with good reason (ironically, as a rule, an incumbent shuns debate) – Cruz has successfully argued cases before the Supreme Court. O'Rourke was occasionally flustered and almost succeeded in hiding it, while Cruz was confident and occasionally laughed at some of his opponent's assertions. But more than that, Beto relied on vague generalities about specific questions and on a couple of questions tried the politicians' tried and true tactic of avoiding answering a question by...

    Britt Daniel, the lead singer of venerable indie band Spoon, has started noticing something unusual in the streets of New York City, where he's been spending time with his girlfriend, thousands of miles away from his native Texas: Stickers and T-shirts for Beto O'Rourke. "Maybe there are some Texans up here," Daniel said in an interview. "But it does seem like even non-Texans have taken a lot of interest in this race. Maybe they just see him as someone who has a future for the party, a future in politics, or maybe they're just genuinely inspired by him."

    A pair of protesters confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an airport over his vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, USA Today reported Wednesday. "You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the court is a victory for women?" one of the women can be heard asking Cruz in a video posted to Twitter. Cruz responds, stating that he believes in due process. The women then press Cruz about his support for Kavanaugh and ask the senator whether he believed the judge committed perjury during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee late last month regarding allegations...

    Todd prefaced his comments this way: “I want to play a quick montage. Beto O'Rourke, the Bobby Kennedy of millenials, decided to go negative.” . . CBS in early October hyped O’Rourke as a “rising star.” Sadly for journalists, the “rising star” is now losing by an average of seven points. Over on MSNBC, Wednesday, Eddie Glaude Jr predicted an O’Rourke victory, adding, “If not, then I'll just reach for my Jamieson bottle.”

    Donald Trump Jr. slammed Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) on Monday, saying the Democratic challenger to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is "pretending" to be Latino. "What’s authentic about an Irish guy pretending to be Hispanic? Asking for some friends Texas," Trump Jr. tweeted, linking to an article from ABC News that contended O'Rourke has kept the Senate race close partly because of a desire among Democratic voters to see authenticity in candidates.

    President Donald Trump will rally supporters in Houston, Texas, next Monday, according to a statement from his campaign. The event is scheduled to be held at NRG Arena, a location that can seat 8,000 people. “The President looks forward to celebrating the booming Trump economy that’s delivering new jobs and bigger paychecks to the hardworking men and women across the Lone Star State,” the Chief Operating Officer for the Trump campaign said in a statement to reporters. Trump promised to campaign in Texas to help Sen. Ted Cruz’s re-election campaign after the well-funded Beto O’Rourke sparked hopes from Democrats looking...

    There are tides in the affairs of men, we are reliably assured, which, taken at the flood, lead on to fortune. Does that mean Texans may expect the ascent of Rep. Beto O'Rourke to the U.S. Senate, on a flood of antagonism toward Donald Trump? Hanged if I see any such prospect cresting out there in the political sea. I say so in spite of all the cash supposedly deluging O'Rourke's campaign organization. I say so, additionally, despite the forest of "Beto" signs surrounding my premises. My conservative neighborhood has given over, at least somewhat, to admiration of a liberal...

    Establishment Dems furious at porn lawyer Attorney Michael Avenatti has come under fire over a now-deleted tweet encouraging people to “chip in for Beto now,” linking to what appeared to be a fundraising page for Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke. In the fine print of the now-deleted campaign, however, O’Rourke supporters discovered that half the proceeds went to Avenatti’s Fight PAC, formed a little over seven weeks ago. Users were able to manually allocate funds entirely to O’Rourke, however the default sent half of all money collected to Avenatti’s Political Action Committee. “‘It is pretty skeezy,’ said Brendan Fischer,...

    Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said Monday that he won't share the $38 million his campaign raised in the third quarter of the year with other Senate Democratic candidates. "No," O'Rourke told a reporter who asked if he would share the funds with candidates in tighter races, according to the Washington Examiner. "I'm focused on Texas. Most of our contributions have come from Texas. All of them have come from people. Not a dime from PACs," he said. O'Rourke added that he is honoring "the commitment that those who've contributed to this campaign have made to me." "If they want to...
