In his attempts to present O’Rourke through a kaleidoscope lens of Fox News fears, Cruz twisted and prodded with bad-faith attacks—coming across as a snide, oily weasel to the people who already hate him while pushing all the right buttons" for the base.

2017 was the second-hottest year on record for Texas. 88 people died in the aftermath of Harvey last year. Wildfires in the Panhandle and North Texas burned thousands of acres. Yet, here we are, the debate is over and not a single mention of climate change.

Beto is going all in on criminal justice/gun/pot reform and idk that that will play in Texas but it certainly going to make him a progressive hero.

Beto, asked about his DWI, characterizes it as a mistake that he was able to move past, unlike many African Americans caught up in the criminal justice system.

"All of us have been horrified by these school shootings," Cruz says. "I jumped in a truck and headed down (to Sante Fe high school)." Says the answer is to keep God and guns in school. Similar to the lines offered at the convention this year:
