Ted Cruz +9 In New Quinnipiac Poll

Anthem Protests

The Texas conservative and O'Rourke have agreed to three debates; this is the first of the three. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in one of this year's most closely-watched Senate races, made the comments during a town hall Wednesday while discussing criminal justice reform. A recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac University showed Cruz leading O'Rourke by nine points. CBS News rates the race as Lean Republican.

President Trump will visit Texas in October to stump for Cruz.

Cruz and O'Rourke will debate at the Southern Methodist University in front of a live audience at 7:00 p.m. White voters back Cruz 66 - 32 percent.

The two campaigns will host subsequent debates in Houston and San Antonio ahead of November's election. He has complained that outside Democratic groups are providing O'Rourke with a fundraising advantage. His campaign touts that he has visited all of Texas' 254 counties.

Puerto Rico is stronger after Hurricane Maria, residents say
The exact death toll figure remains unknown, and the governor has admitted his administration failed to properly record storm-related deaths.

A shocking video shows Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Tex.) comparing police officers to those who implemented racist Jim Crow laws of the post-Civil War South.

Cruz has also criticized O'Rourke's defense of National Football League players who have kneeled at games in protest of police brutality.

"People who became convicts exclusively by dint of the color of their skin in a system that was radically unjust", O'Rourke continued.

"The challenge for O'Rourke is to show that he is more than just a charisma candidate, that he's more than just a pretty face or an empty suit, that he really does have command of the policy issues", Wilson said.
