Beto O'Rourke lays into 'Lyin' Ted' Cruz in heated debate

Richard Linklater’s New Political Ad Mocks Ted Cruz’s Preference of White Castle Over What-A-Burger

The hour-long debate showcased a major shift in tone for O'Rourke, who rarely says the names of Cruz or President Donald Trump on the campaign trail and has often bypassed his opportunities to take direct shots at Cruz. Ted Cruz as "all talk and no action" during the second - and potentially final - debate of the Texas Senate race Tuesday night.

During the opening moments, Cruz criticized O'Rourke for past votes supporting a never-enacted oil production tax that might have hit oil-rich Texas hard.

"He voted to add $2 trillion dollars", O'Rourke said while answering a question about America's debt, which has mushroomed since Republicans passed a controversial tax cut.

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.

The conservative firebrand who has made a career out of rankling member of both parties, bemoaned a lack of civility in today's politics, something he again blamed on the "anger" and "rage" from a far-left "mob", evoking rhetoric that has been used by the president recently on the campaign trail.

Warren still has to answer for her ethnic identity theft
"Like many other Americans, she has a family story of Cherokee and DE ancestry and evidence of Native ancestry". Said Huntsman, "I think the majority of this room here is probably more Native American than Elizabeth Warren .

Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke aggressively cast Republican Sen.

"Ted Cruz is for Ted Cruz", he said.

O'Rourke shot back: "It's really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus after your last six years in the U.S. Senate". "If you have this special relationship with President Trump, then where is the result of that? The tariffs that the president has levied, the trade wars that he has led us into, is hurting no state more than it's hurting Texas".

Cruz accused O'Rourke of being eager to bring impeachment proceedings against Trump, contending that a Democratic Senate would provoke "two years of a partisan circus". "He's dishonest", he said. Cruz called it socialized medicine that the USA won't be able to afford. "I only represent the people of Texas".
