Cruz, O'Rourke respond to name-mocking ad

Patty Aguilar | 11 March, 2018, 04:46

Texas' candidates for its next senator are set, with Rep. Beto O'Rourke avoiding a runoff in the Democratic primary to face incumbent Republican Sen. The Texas Tribune reported that the Houston-based Escobar was keeping an eye on Garcia's race across the state in El Paso throughout election night. But he continued: "In the presidential race we saw enormous support, in Texas, where we won the state solidly, and we saw enormous support nationwide, winning 12 states across the country and unifying a great many conservatives". But Democrats had a higher percentage increase.

"Here's what I'm gonna do", O'Rourke said when asked if he would respond with his own song.

"We can get into name-calling and talk about why the other person is such an terrible guy, or we can focus on the big things that we want to do for the future of our country, for the generations that will succeed us", he said. "Data from the state's other 239 counties favored Republicans, and by the end of the night, there were roughly a half-million more votes in the GOP primary than in the Democratic primary", Politico reported.

"Liberal Robert wanted to fit in, so he changed his name to Beto and hid it with a grin", a line from the song states.

Democrat Beto O'Rourke may have quickly clinched the nomination to become Ted Cruz's Senate challenger this fall, but it was far from a clean sweep.

Oddly, the jingle does not mention the fact that the senator's given name is Rafael Edward Cruz, nor the fact that he was born in Canada.

"The extreme left is angry and energized and they hate the president", Cruz said in a call to reporters.

But as Mr. Trump showed, derisive nicknames can plant doubt, as it did in the case of "Crooked" Hillary Clinton, and "Little Marco" Rubio during the campaign, and with "Low Energy" Jeb Bush, "Liddle Bob Corker" and "Cryin' Chuck Schumer", among others, as president.

Cruz has already seized on O'Rourke's gun control policy, saying he is "undermining our Second Amendment".

Tyler said that Cruz is a "moderate Texan" and echoed the point Cruz made on Wednesday that it's hard for Democrats to win in Texas.

Though most polls and political analysts believe Cruz still has the edge over O'Rouke, there are signs that he could lose. "After Trump, we're going to need a man like Ted Cruz to continue the excellence that has begun".
