    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...

  • AVENATTI DELETES O’ROURKE DONATION PAGE THAT FUNNELED HALF THE MONEY TO HIS OWN PAC

    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...

    Beto O’Rourke, the Senate candidate so cool that he rode a skateboard on stage at his rally Saturday in Corpus Christi, is looking more and more like John Ossoff 2.0. Hollywood’s favorite Texan is still down by about 9 points against incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz, where he’s been hovering for a while. And now it looks like Democrats are having second thoughts about burning all their campaign money in one place.

    In 2008, the national news media swooned over the prospect of an African American President of the United States. The Democratic Party’s presidential nominee was freshman U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL). He was treated to kid glove treatment by the media. There were no hard questions and no real examination of his background. He vaulted into the Oval Office on the shoulders of an adoring press. He spouted the slogan “Hope and Change” and the media, Hollywood and millions of poorly informed American voters swooned. After ten long years, the Democratic Party has found a new Barack Obama. He is...

    AUSTIN — A field director for Democratic Congressional candidate Mike Siegel was arrested in Waller County after standing up for Prairie View A&M University students, whose voter registrations the county questioned. The campaign worker, Jacob Aronowitz, was arrested Wednesday after he delivered a letter demanding the county update the voter registration status of the students who attend the historically black university. The letter was addressed to County Judge Carbett “Trey” Duhon and elections administrator Christy Eason. Aronowitz snapped a photo of a county clerk to serve as proof that the letter was received. The clerk objected to having her photo...

My wonder went to what is going on in Trump’s head,” Cuomo said. “Let’s take a look at him. Here is my educated guess, OK? Other than a warm...

    In the wake of the confirmation battle over Justice Brett Kavanaugh, it is more apparent than ever that we need solid, pro-life Republicans in the Senate to bolster our meager majority. Republicans must gain seats in this Mid-Term Election and cannot afford to lose any to the radical pro-abortion Democrats, especially when it comes to the seat occupied by pro-life stalwart Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Sen. Cruz is considered a long-time pro-life hero. He distinguished himself during the recent contentious Kavanaugh confirmation hearings where he stood in eloquent support of President Trump’s embattled Supreme Court nominee. “Ted Cruz is...

    O'Rourke, who faces incumbent Republican Ted Cruz in November, has highlighted small donations from individuals and eschewed special interest PACs. His campaign noted Friday that more than 800 thousand individuals have contributed to his campaign, which has benefited from viral moments that have enamored the young Democratic congressman to progressives nationwide.

    DALLAS — After church on a recent Sunday, Emily Mooney smiled as she told her girlfriends about her public act of rebellion. She had slapped a “Beto for Senate’’ sticker on her S.U.V. and driven it to her family’s evangelical church. But then, across the parking lot, deep in conservative, Bible-belt Texas, she spotted a sign of support: the same exact sticker endorsing Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat who is challenging Senator Ted Cruz. “I was like, who is it?” she exclaimed. “Who in this church is doing this?” Listening to Ms. Mooney’s story, the four other evangelical moms standing around...

    CNN is shining a light on three of the “most consequential races” in 2018 — including the Texas bid for U.S. Senate — through debates or town halls in the coming weeks. But Texans won’t get to see incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of El Paso face off in this series. “Sen. Ted Cruz (R) declined CNN’s invitation to participate in the town hall,” a CNN statement noted. So O’Rourke will be featured in a live, one-hour town hall with CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash in South Texas on Oct. 18....

    On a balmy night in Austin, against the backdrop of the glittering high-rises of the city’s booming downtown, Beto O’Rourke is laying out his audacious plan to change the face of Texas, and America. In front of him, packed into an open-air park, a largely young crowd of 40,000 is thrumming with scarcely contained glee. Even in the liberal bubble of Austin they have never experienced anything like this: a Democrat seriously in the running for a Senate seat, vying to topple Ted Cruz, the Tea Party fanatic whom even fellow Republicans call “Lucifer in the flesh”. “We are not...

    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz leads Democrat challenger Beto O’Rourke 50 to 44 in a CBS YouGov poll conducted October 2-5. The survey of 1,031 registered and likely Texas voters released Sunday showed Cruz with a six point lead over O’Rourke in the more recent CBS battleground tracker poll. Democrat voters were motivated to vote out of opposition to President Donald Trump while Republican voters indicated their vote for U.S. Senate is motivated out of support for President Trump, according to CBS. Respondents supporting Cruz indicated a greater draw to his issue stances than personal qualities while O’Rourke supporters relatively...
