Ted Cruz Says O’Rourke Too Radical For Texas

Local News

Incumbent U.S. Senator Ted Cruz has made his share of trips to the Rio Grande Valley.

Now, fresh off a debate against challenger Beto O’Rourke, political pundits say he won that first contest. Ted Cruz is telling voters he’s still the right choice and calling his challenger too radical for Texas.

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, “I don’t think there is a political race in the country with a sharper divide between two candidates than my race against Beto O’Rourke. I’ve spent the last 6 years fighting each and every day for the people of Texas. I’m fighting for lower taxes, lower regulations, and more jobs. I’m fighting to secure the border and fighting to defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Those are the common sense values of Texas.”

The second senatorial debate between Senator Cruz and Congressman O’Rourke will be held on September 30 in Houston.
