Ted Cruz uses jingle to take opening jibe at November opponent

Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke got through the Senate primary without a runoff, CNN projected, and is now set to take on Republican Sen.

O'Rourke, however, declined to respond to Cruz's name-calling.

And with the primaries coming to a close, Cruz took an early shot at O'Rourke by releasing a radio ad that was a jingle jabbing O'Rourke for switching his name politically from "Robert" to "Beto".

Reports say O'Rourke has already raised $2.3 million with Cruz raising at least $800,000.

"First of all, you didn't like that dirty pool when you were running for president and the president called you "Lyin" Ted, ' you didn't like that kind of tactic", Cuomo said.

He came out swinging, eager to paint O'Rourke as out of touch with Texas voters and tie him to "left-wing liberals" in his party, including Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer and Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi. Texas has not elected a Democrat statewide since 1994. O'Rourke talks to Rachel Martin following Tuesday's primary in the Lone Star State.

Since O'Rourke entered the race about a year ago, Mackowiak said the challenger has benefitted from mostly favorable media attention, which is typical for any upstart Texas Democrat early in campaign cycles.

The UK sold more than £1.1bn worth of arms and military kit to Saudi Arabia in the first half of 2017 alone. Foreign minister Boris Johnson led the welcoming party for Prince Mohammed on his arrival late on Tuesday.

The results of the polls suggest the majority of Texans support the GOP.

In a Facebook livestream following the announcement of the results, O'Rourke said he appreciated the high number of Democrats that had both turned out to vote and made a decision to run for office this year.

"On primary day she lost in the Democratic primaries either 22 or 23 counties, all in south Texas against an unknown Democrat with no money at all". "There's really not much I need to say about Sen".

"If we know the hard left is going to show up in big, big numbers, then our job is clear-we've got to make sure conservatives show up in big, big numbers to keep Texas red", he added.

Even with the extra votes, Cruz said his campaign "absolutely" is taking the race for his reelection seriously.

"I just don't think that's what folks in Texas want us to focus on", he said.
