House Democrat calls bid to unseat Cruz key to flipping Senate

(CNN) — Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke knows most people are already writing off his long-shot bid to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, but he argues his race could be the key to flipping the Senate in 2018.

“I’d like nothing more for the establishment to count us out,” O’Rourke told CNN in a phone interview from El Paso.

The 44-year-old third-term House Democrat isn’t hiring pollsters or campaign consultants and is sticking with a pledge he made during his first run for the House to refuse any corporate money or donations from political action committees. He pointed to his party’s dismal record in the last 30 years trying to win a Senate seat in Texas, saying Democrats spent close to a billion dollars on “consultants, polls, wizards and experts, and we really came up short.”(continued)

So when you burn your Nikes and catch your house on fire.  Don't call the Socialist firefighters.   Don't call the Socialist police when you need help either.   

Why are you so racist?

Hey, if old Beto really thinks he has a shot, I'd like to make a large (all I can get my hands on, including my first born) wager with him.

Cruz trails Beto in fundraising...  by a lot 

Quote

Although Cruz already had a substantial stockpile by the time O’Rourke declared his Senate bid last spring, the Democrat has gained attention for outpacing Cruz’s fundraising tally in what's now three out of the last four reporting periods.

After O’Rourke announced last week that he raised more than $2 million in the first 45 days of 2018 , Cruz's camp reached out to donors with a jarring message: “This is serious.”

I think Ted has done a good job, he won by almost 1.4 million votes in 2012 it will be hard for any democrat to make up that many votes. They may cut into it but Ted should win

Cruz has to get out of the Primary, first. He probably will, but he may not.

Those stats show Dems are far outpacing GOP in early voting.

Not a good sign for Cruz.

Didn't the Donald call him the single biggest liar? And something about him being a worse liar besides Jeb Bush?:rofl:  Lying Ted I think it was.  I need to look that one up

None needed......the anti-gun libtards are going to guarantee a landslide for Senator Cruz......

Oh I've no doubt it's going to be a win for Cruz. Texas is still deeply red, no matter what's going on in Austin/DFW/Houston. But it's gonna be much closer than 2012.
