Shooting anniversary overshadowed in the race for Texas Senate

Beto O'Rourke campaigns

"Cruz dismisses that, saying 'Texas won't be bought" and blaming the "hard lefT" which he says is "filled with rage" against President Donald Trump. Or will O'Rourke galvanize first-time and young voters enough to turn Texas blue? Early voting ended Friday night. He foresees a blue wave-but not a tsunami. Secretary of State data through Thursday includes counties that are home to almost 80 percent of Texas' population. Ted Cruz well over a year ago, no one would have predicted the race would emerge as one of the most closely watched elections in the country. In total 4,514,930 Texans have cast in-person ballots and 369,598 cast mail-in ballots, according to the Texas Tribune.

Cruz is seeking a second term against O'Rourke, a rising star in the Democratic Party who has shattered Senate campaign fundraising records despite shunning donations from outside political groups. It's the most competitive U.S. Senate race in a generation in Texas, where Democrats have been shut out of statewide office since the 1990s. Republicans, however, are cautioning Democrats about being too confident, pointing out that historically there are far more Republicans among voters in Texas than Democrats.
