Cruz, ORourke clash over immigration, Trump, guns during intense debate

Ted Cruz Tries to Smear Beto O'Rourke with Barbecued Tofu

O'Rourke, an El Paso Congressman, accused Cruz of caring more about tax cuts for corporations than his constituents, saying he wanted "to deport each and every single Dreamer", and criticizing him for being an absentee senator who spent more time campaigning in Iowa than Texas.

"They said. 'if you take our guns you're not going to make us any safer".

Beto (pronounced Beh-toe, with a short e) is a Spanish-language nickname for Roberto. Cruz called the legislation part of a pattern of O'Rourke flirting with loosening laws on illicit drugs beyond just marijuana. "/ So he changed his name to Beto and hid it with a grin". We would have advised the Cruz campaign to leave the nominative tomfoolery to respectable outfits like the Free Beacon and, well, The Scrapbook.

"The challenge for O'Rourke is to show that he is more than just a charisma candidate, that he's more than just a pretty face or an empty suit, that he really does have command of the policy issues", Wilson said.

Nonetheless, O'Rourke has raised significantly out-raised Cruz.

The vast differences between the two candidates on nearly every hot topic were on display, particularly immigration and border security.

"Not everybody is totally left, totally right, so you know it's still an effective means to get their message across", said Dana Tyson, manager at the Angry Elephant.

"While I may like one of them personality-wise better than the other", said Lionberger.

Cruz on Friday night was also asked whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accuser could say anything that might question his support.

O'Rourke has built his campaign around healthcare, economic inequality, and resisting Trump and Cruz's immigration policies, as well as calling for some gun-control measures including uniform background checks and banning high-capacity weapons.

Cruz said that Dr. Martin Luther King would not have "stood for" Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protests, during which the NFL player famously kneeled pregame to bring awareness to police-involved violence.

The Cook Political Report on Friday updated its rating for Texas's heated Senate race, moving it from leans Republican to toss-up amid new polls showing Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) in a tightening race with Sen. "Imagine the cost", O'Rourke said. That is when Cruz proposed five topical debates over three months in five cities.

Cruz was asked whether he lost his dignity by supporting Trump after losing to him in a bruising 2016 Republican primary that saw Trump deriding the senator's wife and father.

The second debate between Cruz and O'Rourke is set for September 30 at the University of Houston.

The May 2018 shooting at Sante Fe High School near Houston was also a hot debate issue. The deadline to register to vote is October 9.
