Ted Cruz Attacks Beto O'Rourke for Denouncing Police Murder

Ted Cruz Tries to Smear Beto O'Rourke with Barbecued Tofu

Cruz admitted that his Democrat competitor was giving him a 'real race, ' but is banking his re-election on energizing Republican voters who have denied Texas Democrats from winning any statewide office in the last 25 years.

"If you drill down and look at the data for unarmed black children killed by police, there is virtually no support for the idea that this happens at a frightening level", the Post found.

Beto (pronounced Beh-toe, with a short e) is a Spanish-language nickname for Roberto. O'Rourke has publicly called for Guyger to be fired. We would have advised the Cruz campaign to leave the nominative tomfoolery to respectable outfits like the Free Beacon and, well, The Scrapbook. Nowhere in this clip does O'Rourke attack the police in general, dispute the need for effective policing, or insist that all or most officers are racist. Will the real Rob, Robert, Beto, or Roberto please stand up?

The vast differences between the two candidates on nearly every hot topic were on display, particularly immigration and border security.

"I feel very strongly he probably is what he says he is, just looking at his ads", Belcher said of O'Rourke.

Cruz and O'Rourke will face off in Dallas tonight for the first of three scheduled debates.

But don't worry if you can't make the jaunt up I-35.

Cruz has also criticized O'Rourke's defense of National Football League players who have kneeled at games in protest of police brutality. As the final questions came, however, he seemed more at peace with his answers, and had no problem "exchanging blows" with Cruz - the more experienced debater of the two.

"Absolutely", the senator responded, noting that he was among the Republicans who called for Ford to be treated with "respect" when and if she testifies before the Judiciary committee.

"On the O'Rourke side, he may be in a situation where he needs to bring over maybe female Republican voters, or more Republican voters, or independents or bring new voters to the polls", Greenberg said.

With this ratings change, for the first time this cycle, Cook now estimates Democrats and Republicans are defending an equal number of Toss-Up Senate races: Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota for Democrats; Arizona, Nevada, Tennessee, and Texas for Republicans.

O'Rourke said racial profiling, discriminatory stop-and-frisk searches, racially motivated police shootings and discriminatory sentencing should be collectively considered as the "new Jim Crow".

"I've got a responsibility, which is to fight for everybody here and every person in this state", he said.

"Thoughts and prayers, Senator Cruz, are just not going to cut it anymore".

KENS 5 will host the two candidates as they discuss domestic and foreign policy in San Antonio on October 16. The deadline to register to vote is October 9.

Cruz offered no compromise on hardline immigration measures or gun control, months after a mass shooting at a high school near Houston.
