Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump welcomes Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas candidate, at a Tea Party Patriots rally on Wednesday, September 9, 2015, on Capitol Hill in Washington to stand up for the Bringing Atomic Agreements to Iran
President Donald Trump tried to fuel fears of socialism on Friday by beating Republican Beto O'Rourke, who wanted to upset Republican senator Ted Cruz in Red Texas.
Prior to his Monday visit to Houston, Trump named the 46-year-old representative a "total lightweight compared to Ted Cruz," who "is far from representing the values and desires of the Texans." He suggested O Rourke "transform Texas into Venezuela" rhetoric that he used to portray Democrats as a dangerous leftist as the GOP attempts to defend its congressional majorities on November 6.
The tweet comes when O & Rourke has forced Republicans to work harder than they normally do in nationwide Texas races. The Democrat, who used his party's energy and struck the Senate fundraising record for $ 38 million in the third quarter, would shake the Senate's fight for shocking Cruz next month.
O & Rourkes election campaign does not respond immediately to a request for comment.
O & Rourke did not go further than a typical American Democrat. He has argued for policies such as Medicaid expansion, tighter background controls on arms sales and a path to citizenship for young immigrants who were illegally brought to the US as children. But the GOP has repeatedly judged him too liberal for the state, which Trump enforced in 2016 by about 9 percentage points. The Democrats have not won a nationwide race there in more than 20 years.
