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.

In New York, the UN Security Council will again gather to discuss the failure of a ceasefire it had demanded last week. The UN says 400,000 people are trapped in the towns and villages there and are running out of food and medicine.
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".
