Ted Cruz’s Supporters Are Freaking Out As Beto Yard Signs Blanket Texas, And They’re Raging At His Campaign

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) supporters are overwhelmed by signs for challenger Beto O’Rourke and are furious at Cruz campaign for mismanaging the situation, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Beto’s distinctive black-and-white yards signs are popping up in traditionally conservative neighborhoods and have “seemingly dominated the landscape” in the state, the publication says.

The situation has freaked out Cruz supporters enough for the subject to come up at Republican meetings and events across the state.

“Last week, at a GOP gathering in Salado, a small, community halfway between Waco and Austin, attendees distributed a bulletin that highlighted all the O’Rourke signs popping up in conservative neighborhoods,” the Star-tribune wrote. “A speaker urged patience among local Republicans on the lack of Cruz signs, telling the relieved crowd that she was working with a local printer on getting legal clearance to print their own local Cruz campaign signs and that the campaign would purchase more signs in the coming weeks.”

Cruz’s signs are rarely spotted, and his supporters are reportedly “increasingly agitated,” partly because Cruz’s campaign refuses to prove his supporters with signs.

At a recent rally, a member of the State Republican Executive Committee confronted Cruz about the signs.

“The one question I get asked universally, everywhere is, ‘We’re seeing signs that say ‘[Beto]’ in our neighbors’ yards, and we want to claim our territory and have your signs in our yards,’” the man, Mike McCloskey, asked Cruz. “I think people here are wanting those. What can we do to get those in the hands of the folks that want to have them in their yard?” voters.
