President Donald Trump will star at a rally in Houston on October 22 to help Sen.
Cruz chortled. "It's clear Congressman O'Rourke's pollsters have told him to come out on the attack", he replied. "And then he had this presidential race with Donald Trump where Trump insulted his family and Cruz said he wasn't going to endorse Trump and then he changed his mind and did, and so it kind of undermined his image in Texas", said Aman Batheja, political editor for The Texas Tribune. "That's why the president called him Lyin' Ted and it's why the nickname stuck because it's true". Despite that, his campaign raised more than $38.1 million in the third quarter of 2018 - the largest quarterly fundraising total in Senate history.Cruz maintains a slight lead over O'Rourke in recent polls but has struggled to raise as much money - only $12 million in the final quarter. "Cruz accepted $120,000 from the Political Actions Committees who represent the corporate interests that benefited from this tax cut", O'Rourke charged.
O'Rourke tried to engender empathy from an audience in Lubbock, Texas, claiming, "I grew up in El Paso where no U.S. Senator ever opened an office".
President Trump is hoping to give a boost to Texas Republican Sen.
Early voting begins Monday.

Texas is seen as one of the Democrats' best chances to gain a Republican-held U.S. Senate seat in November.
Democrat Beto O'Rourke is hoping to reverse polls showing him fading against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz in the second debate of a Texas Senate race that's become one of the nation's most-watched. The Democrat has a campaign war chest worth $22.9 million, more than double Cruz's about $11.3 million in cash on-hand.
O'Rourke's uphill campaign has attracted grassroots enthusiasm and a flood of financial donations. Cruz wants to participate in a previously scheduled townhall featuring just O'Rourke in the U.S. -Mexico border city of McAllen on Thursday night, but it's unclear if that will come together in time. He struggled at times to retort while Cruz, an experienced debater and former litigator, painted him as anti-police and out of step with the right-leaning Texas electorate.
Now Houston-based filmmaker Richard Linklater ("Slacker", "Dazed and Confused", "Boyhood", etc.) is reviving the weirdness in a new Fire Ted Cruz PAC ad (below)-a sequel to last week's "Is Ted Cruz "Tough As Texas"?" spot ("Watch the strangely delightful Richard Linklater-directed "Fire Ted Cruz" ad that's gone viral"). 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. You were all talk and no action.
