O'Rourke attacks Cruz as 'dishonest' in testy 2nd Texas Senate debate

Hey Dems Don’t Bet on Beto Richard Linklater Livens Up Cruz-O'Rourke Race

Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke faced off Tuesday night in San Antonio in their second Texas Senate race debate.

Cruz's comment was a reference to O'Rourke's past comments that he supported impeaching Trump.

Ted Cruz is the butt of another joke, this time it's an ad aimed at the senator's appreciation for the fast food joint, White Castle, instead of Texas' Whataburger. "It's why the president called him "Lyin" Ted, ' and why the nickname stuck".

Cruz laughed it off and tried to turn attention back to polls that show the Democrat falling behind the Republican.

O'Rourke accused Cruz of not doing enough to stand up to Trump when it came to Russian Federation and that the state needs a "full-time senator" rather than someone who concentrates on running for president.

Cruz kept O'Rourke on the defensive when they debated last month in Dallas, and O'Rourke, who had maintained a feel-good message, has promised a sharper tone Tuesday night in San Antonio.

Cruz noted the more aggressive stance and pointed to O'Rourke's declining standing in the polls.

Trump added, "Ted Cruz has done so much for Texas, including massive cuts in taxes and regulations - which has brought Texas to the best jobs numbers in the history of the state". "He's going to make up positions and votes that I've never held or have ever taken".

In a line that underscored Democratic worries that O'Rourke hasn't won over enough Latino voters, Cruz said: "The people of Texas, and I will say, especially the Hispanic community, we don't want to see taxpayer-funded, Medicaid-funded abortions".

"Every time there is a choice between left-wing national activists and the people of Texas, he goes with left-wing national activists", Cruz said.

Beto O'Rourke was relatively reserved in his first debate against Sen. O'Rourke and most Democrats opposed the measure.

"Really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus after your last six years in the U.S. Senate", O'Rourke said to laughter in the audience. He ends with a quip about Cruz's Canadian origins and a final, "C'mon, Ted". You were all talk and no action.

"You want to talk about a shutdown?" Most of the party's candidates for statewide office in Texas over the last two election cycles lost by margins of more than 20 percentage points. But with polls showing him slipping farther behind just three weeks before the November 6 election, and six days before early voting starts in Texas, O'Rourke switched his approach. "I believe in hope", Cruz said.
