Ted Cruz Americans are 'Dreamers' also

O'Rourke, a three-term Democratic congressman from El Paso, is giving up his seat to challenge Cruz, who was first elected to the Senate in 2012. There were almost 45,000 "O'Rourke" tweets as well, and all three terms became top trends in the U.S. The tweets may lean toward O'Rourke, but as the congressman said onstage at Southern Methodist University, 50 percent of rural Texans don't have reliable access to broadband internet.

"This race is most likely to be determined in suburban districts of Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio", Matthew Wilson, a Professor of Political Science at SMU, told ABC News, "If Beto O'Rourke is going to win he's going to have to persuade a lot of moderate, traditional Republicans to cross party lines". However, a recent Reuters poll showed O'Rourke two points ahead of Cruz.

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in one of this year's most closely-watched Senate races, made the comments during a town hall Wednesday while discussing criminal justice reform.

Nonetheless, O'Rourke has raised significantly out-raised Cruz.

When it was his turn, Cruz said he admired O'Rourke for being passionate and believing in what he is fighting for - much like Bernie Sanders, the self-described Democratic socialist, Cruz noted.

Cruz went out of his way to paint O'Rourke as to the left of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. O'Rourke drew laughs by replying simply of Cruz: "True to form". O'Rourke said Texas was ready for a senator who will protect the Second Amendment while imposing small restrictions to save lives and prevent mass shootings. During the 2016 presidential race, the moderators reminded the audience, Mr. Trump savagely attacked Mr. Cruz as "Lying Ted", while Mr. Cruz characterized Mr. Trump as an inveterate liar himself.

O'Rourke, though, faulted Cruz for not opposing Trump more and said the president undermines American democratic institutions.

"It is why some have called this", he concluded, "I think it is an apt description, the new Jim Crow".

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

The debate was testy through the last question of the night.

Among the issues that O'Rourke had with Cruz's proposed debate schedule was every one fell on a Friday evening during high school football season.
