Ted Cruz Just Admitted He Can’t Compete With O’Rourke, Blames Trump: Report

As the midterm elections approach, Democrats are still ahead in the general ballot and Republicans are growing anxious. During a Republican gathering in North Texas on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) admitted that he can’t compete with Beto O’Rourke’s TV ads because he hasn’t raised enough money.

According to Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cruz complained that voters in Texas have been “flooded” with ads from his political opponent, but he also admitted that O’Rourke had out-fundraised him.

“We’re seeing the airwaves flooded [with O’Rourke’s TV ads],” Cruz said. “We’ve got to save our resources to turn out and mobilize conservatives.”

Cruz went on to say that the left’s hatred towards Donald Trump has caused them to unite.

“There’s no doubt that anger is a powerful political motivator,” the senator told the Star-Telegram. “Even though they have divisions amongst themselves, the hatred of President Trump is unifying many on the left.”

Other GOP operatives told the Star-Telegram that the same voters that opposed former President Barack Obama, which led to Cruz’s election win in 2012, have now shifted their focus somewhere else.

“All of the grassroots enthusiasm that drove tea party fundraising spends all of its time supporting [Donald] Trump on Twitter,” one operative told the newspaper. “There so much focus on Trump, it’s really sucked a lot of the oxygen out of the small-dollar enthusiasm.”
