Trump Adviser Delivers Terrible News For Cruz: ‘He Could Lose Texas’

The Texas Senate race is tight. But Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) keeps gaining momentum as incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz sinks in the pools. Facing that reality, President Trump’s budget chief Mick Mulvaney said Cruz (R) is in danger of losing his Senate race.

Latest polls show Cruz, a one-term Republican senator who first took office in 2013, leading O’Rourke by a single point, and Republicans appear to realize Cruz may be in for a stunning defeat.

Mulvaney told Republicans at a closed-door meeting alongside RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel that it was possible but not “likely” that Cruz could lose his Senate race, pointing to Cruz’s “likability” according to audio obtained by The New York Times.

“There’s a very real possibility we will lose a race in Texas for Senate, O.K.?” Mulvaney said, according to the Times. “I don’t think it’s likely, but it’s a possibility. How likable is a candidate? That still counts.”

However, Mulvaney attempted to assuage fears of widespread Democrat victories in November, insisting that no “blue wave” was coming to elect Democrats to office.

Democrats are hoping for a net gain of 23 seats in the House and 2 in the Senate to retake both houses of Congress in the midterms.

“They want you to think there’s a blue wave when there’s not,” he said, before admitting that Republicans face a challenging map with a number of GOP-held seats considered toss-ups.

“I don’t know how many seats we’ve got this year, but there’s got to be, how many?” Mulvaney said. “Twenty? Thirty? Forty?”

Mulvaney’s remarks are some of the most candid on Cruz’s race from the White House, which threw its support behind Cruz’s re-election bid last month amid polls showing a tightening of the race.
