Ted Cruz is running hard, not scared
By Rick Moran

Unless something dramatic happens between now and November, Democrats are poised to make significant gains in the midterm elections.

How significant depends on many factors, including just how far to the left the Democratic base will force their candidates to run.  In Texas, Beto O'Rourke is the leading Democrat running to unseat first-term senator Ted Cruz.  You would think that in deep red Texas, O'Rourke would make an effort to hide his far-left liberalism.  Instead, he is embracing the agenda of Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, claiming it's what Texans want.

O'Rourke is outraising Cruz in campaign contributions as he pulls in support from Hollywood to New York.  But as has been shown recently, money doesn't matter as much as it once did, and Cruz, taking nothing for granted, is running hard, not scared.


Thanks, Myst.
