Ted Cruz In Full Panic After Latest Report On Beto O’Rourke’s Campaign

Texas Democratic congressman Beto O’Rourke, who is running to unseat Sen.Senator Ted Cruz in the 2016 midterm elections, made a bombshell announcement Tuesday that has Republicans scrambling in panic.

Since winning the Democratic primary in early March, Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s campaign has continued to pick up. Sen. Cruz, meanwhile, has stumbled out of the gates in his reelection bid and has focused on childish attacks on O’Rourke.

Cruz faced immediate backlash over a radio ad he released that mocked O’Rourke’s nickname and challenged his manhood the day after Rep. O’Rourke won his primary.

The Democrat from El Paso, however, has taken the high road and refused to be dragged into the gutter where Sen. Cruz and the Republicans would prefer to wage this battle. And it’s not just his words that he’s managed to keep above the fray.

As noted by The Daily Beast, Rep. O’Rourke has so far refused to take any Political Action Committee (PAC) money to run his campaign, freeing him from special interests and the kind of soft money that often disguises the true identities of dubious donors, which makes today’s bombshell report even more remarkable.

“O’Rourke’s campaign has raised almost $7 million in the first quarter of 2018, and they’ve done so with small to medium sized donations,” The Beast reports.

“We’re absolutely running this race the right way—not taking any PAC money, going to every single county and holding town halls across Texas where anyone can ask any question,” his statement to The Daily Beast reads.

Document filings show that he raised $6.7 million from 141,000 contributions, which O’Rourke says demonstrates that his campaign is “powered by people who are standing up to special interests, proving that we are more than a match and making it clear that Texans are willing to do exactly what our state and country need of us at this critical time.”

They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and so far, Rep. O’Rourke is proving that he’s more than ready to live up to his state’s standards, and Republicans are worried.
