New Ad Hits Ted Cruz For Liking White Castle Instead of Whataburger

Representatives Joseph P. Kennedy III and Beto O’Rourke embraced Saturday in McAllen Texas. O’Rourke is running for the US Senate seat held by Ted Cruz

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, as Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Tex.) demonstrated Tuesday when he borrowed President Trump's nickname for Sen.

Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke faced off Tuesday night in San Antonio in their second Texas Senate race debate. O'Rourke said Cruz hadn't done enough to stand up to Trump when it came to Russian Federation and that the state needs a "full-time senator" rather than someone who concentrates on running for president.

Monday, Linklater sized up Cruz again and hit him where it hurts, mocking his campaign's weird attack on O'Rourke for being a "Triple Meat Whataburger liberal", whatever that means, and showing a clip from the Senate floor during which Cruz proclaims his love for White Castle.

Trump referred to his then-presidential opponent Cruz as "Lyin' Cruz" repeatedly during his 2016 campaign. But Cruz has more recently opened up around 10-point leads.

The two also sparred over the issue of judicial appointments, and Cruz said he was "proud" to help confirm both of Trump's nominees to the Supreme Court - Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Porsche Panamera GTS and Sport Turismo Debut with 453 Horsepower
Large brakes (390 millimetres in diameter at the front, 365 millimetres at the rear) deliver outstanding deceleration. Behind the wheel, there's a heated steering wheel with paddles, Alcantara trim, and plenty of anodised aluminium.

Tuesday's debate, the second between the two Senate contenders and the last scheduled before the November 6 election, comes at a critical time. O'Rourke set a Senate record for a single three-month period with $38 million in third-quarter donations, more than triple the haul for Cruz.

Cruz kept O'Rourke on the defensive when they debated last month in Dallas.

"Every time there is a choice between left-wing national activists and the people of Texas, he goes with left-wing national activists", Cruz said.

In his attempts to paint O'Rourke as a figurehead of the liberal "resistance" movement, Cruz said the Democrat would not be able to work with Trump as a member of the Senate and would instead incite a "partisan circus", by supporting impeachment proceedings against him.

Even when Cruz tried to say that he and O'Rourke were somewhat in agreement on opposing the Trump administration's higher tariffs on foreign-made goods, O'Rourke drew laughs by replying, 'Really interesting to hear you talk about the partisan circus after your six years in the Senate'. Cruz hit him particularly hard on his affirmation that he would vote to impeach the president, on whom likely voters in Texas are split 49 to 49, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released last month.
