Rafael 'Ted' Cruz Mocks Dem Opponent for Changing First Name

11 March 2018

But O'Rourke raised $2.4 million to Cruz's 1.9 million in 2017's final months, the second time the challenger has topped outraised him in a quarter. The Cruz campaign ad is a parody version that begins, "If you're gonna run in Texas, you can't be a liberal man".

However, a political science professor at Rice University in Houston argues that Trump's presence in the White House is motivating a subset of Democratic voters and independents to turn out to vote to express their opposition to the administration.

"I think Texans nearly expect their elected officials to be in the national political conservation", Sullivan said.

"We are getting our democracy back". Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia both won their respective Democratic primaries in districts that typically vote blue. "But the nice value of it is in Texas at least there are a lot more conservatives than liberals". A tide of anti-Trump activism helped propel almost 50 women to make a run for Congress. "All these stories that were being sent around nationally were like 'Oh my gosh, Democrats are outvoting Republicans in Texas.' Once we tallied everything including Election Day, it turned out that wasn't the case". They represented the first state primary election in what looks to be a contentious 2018 congressional midterm election season.

Cleveland Browns trade for Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry, per reports
Landry spent the last four seasons with the Dolphins after the team took him in the second round (63rd overall) in the 2014 draft. Once the season was over rumors began to swirl that the two sides could not come up with a suitable contract.

Texas voted on Tuesday, and the state is still very much red. Since then it has been all Republicans, who have held every statewide office. With little good news to share, they quoted Sen. But Democrats had a higher percentage increase.

Jim Dean, chair of Democracy for America, said Democrats can win if they nominate candidates cut from the same cloth as Mrs. Moser and Ms. Jones.

For Republicans, the primary was a vivid exhibition of the Trump effect in GOP politics.

"I'm trying to remind people [to vote]".

'A Wrinkle in Time' director Ava DuVernay praises diversity on set
It's not often that we see purely straightforward films that are simply about vanquishing darkness with the light from within us. DuVernay tweeted a link to Coogler's essay, writing: "When your friend makes you tear up on opening day".

CNN's Chris Cuomo and Cruz got into it on this subject this morning, with Cuomo suggesting the senator was something of a hypocrite, given his active dislike of the nickname bestowed upon him by Trump during the 2016 primary election, which was "Lyin' Ted". "Those are not the views of the vast majority of Texans".

"I hope that our political environment changes". "I voted against it", he said.

Part of the problem O'Rourke faces is that he is still unknown to many people. "I think we have a long way to go until November". Even Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has been indicted on felony securities fraud charges, clinched his party's nomination unopposed. Republican Gov. Greg Abbott crushed her in the general election that year, winning by more than 20 points, and Cruz said her issues with Texans were presaged by her primary results.

"He's running for the U.S. Senate in Texas".
