Apparently, some people hate “Ted” Cruz as they are raising record numbers for his Texas opponent Beto O’Rourke.
Sen. Ted Cruz’s opponent raised eye-popping $6.7M in last three months.
I didn’t even know it was that time again for Cruz, but I am sure President Trump will stump for him if he wants it. Again, that’s if he wants it. Cruz hasn’t been front and center as he was during the Obama era as he has tried to work within the Senate and promote the Make America Great Again agenda.
Cruz and Trump have history, and it’s not all that great.

U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, raised over $6.7 million for his U.S. Senate bid in the first quarter of 2018, according to his campaign, a staggering number that poses a new category of threat to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz.
The haul is easily O’Rourke’s biggest fundraising quarter yet, more than double his next-closest total for a three-month period. It also is more than any Democratic Senate candidate nationwide took in last quarter, O’Rourke’s campaign said.
Cruz has not released his first-quarter fundraising numbers yet, but O’Rourke’s $6.7 million total is on a different level than his previous hauls, which ranged from $1.7 million to $2.4 million. Those alone were good enough to outraise Cruz for three of the last four reporting periods.
Furthermore, the $6.7 million total came from more than 141,000 contributions — another record-busting number for O’Rourke.
