Current Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) is growing more and more desperate to gain votes as the midterm elections get closer. Cruz fired off an attack against his Democratic opponent Beto O’Rourke claiming that he will ban barbecue from the entire state of Texas if he wins.
Cruz was lashing out at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) who were protesting outside his event in Columbus, TX.
“When I got here someone told me that even PETA was protesting and giving out barbecued tofu, so I got to say, they summed up the entire election: If Texas elects a Democrat, they’re going to ban barbecue across the state of Texas,” Cruz claimed.
“You want to talk about an issue to mobilize the people, and I’m talking everybody,” Cruz added.
Cruz doubled his attack via Twitter.
.@peta protested our town hall yesterday, handing out barbecued tofu. We were glad to welcome them, but it illustrates the stakes af the election: if Beto wins, BBQ will be illegal! 😂😂😂 https://t.co/L1ILod6EST
