Cruz, Beto O'Rourke trade attacks during testy first debate
TEXAS: Ted Cruz +9 In New Quinnipiac Poll
22 September, 2018, 08:23
O'Rourke has garnered national attention in the race and has elevated Democratic hopes for defeating Cruz, and neutral observers say the race is competitive. However, a recent Reuters poll showed O'Rourke two points ahead of Cruz.
"If liberal hopes could drive a Senate campaign to victory, Beto O'Rourke would be winning by 40 points", Enten said.
Cruz was asked whether he lost his dignity by supporting Trump after losing to him in a bruising 2016 Republican primary that saw Trump deriding the senator's wife and father.
Enten referenced the Quinnipiac poll and added that other polls have the race closer.
Cruz and O'Rouke last week agreed to three debates. In Mr. Cruz's case, the senator showcased a masterful command of nearly every topic, while Mr. O'Rourke unfailingly managed to take any issue and tie it to a specific individual he has met while crisscrossing Texas.
When asked how they represent Texas values, both men took the opportunity to smear their opponent based on campaign contributions.
O'Rourke, though, faulted Cruz for not opposing Trump more and said the president undermines American democratic institutions. "That system of suspecting somebody solely based on the color of their skin, searching that person solely based on the color of their skin, stopping that person solely based on the color of their skin, shooting that person solely based on the color of their skin, throwing the book at that person and letting them rot behind bars solely based on the color of their skin, is why some have called this - I think it is an apt description - the new Jim Crow". "I've got to say, [PETA] summed up the entire election", Cruz said. On Friday morning, the Cook Political Report changed its rating of the race from "Lean Republican" to "Toss Up".
Mr. O'Rourke, in turn, did not deny he favors higher taxes but stressed instead a format he said favors the wealthy and stands as a misguided move for a nation deeply in debt.
Friday night was the first debate for Cruz and O'Rourke.
"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".
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.
