Richard LInklater's new ad vs. Ted Cruz's White Castle love | Campaign Trail

Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke says he addresses crowds in English and Spanish because he wants to make sure everyone is represented Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke says he addresses crowds in English and Spanish because he wants to make sure everyone is represented

President Donald Trump once called Sen.

Minutes into the debate, as Cruz accused O'Rourke of supporting a $10-a-barrel tax on oil, the El Paso congressman shot back that Cruz is "dishonest".

During a segment on climate change and oil taxes: "Senator Cruz is not going to be honest with you", O'Rourke said.

"It's why the president called him Lyin' Ted", O'Rourke said, "and it's why the nickname stuck, because it's true".

Cruz has maintained an uneasy lead over O'Rourke in recent polls despite O'Rourke out-fundraising him the last six quarters of the cycle.

As O'Rourke hammered Cruz as more interested in his political career than representing Texas - "Ted Cruz is for Ted Cruz", the challenger said at one point - Cruz pressed his long-running case that O'Rourke is captive to the activist left and too liberal for Texas.

O'Rourke also faulted Cruz for leading the 2013 federal government shutdown, for missing votes in Washington and for campaigning in Iowa to further his presidential ambitions rather than spending more time in Texas.

Cruz decried O'Rourke's "extreme views" on abortion.


Cruz and O'Rourke, who first debated September 21 in Dallas, may have sparred for the last time before Election Day when they took the stage in San Antonio.

Both candidates lobbed attacks throughout, taking more aggressive stances as the race enters the final stretch and Democrats try to keep their fledgling hopes of re-taking the Senate alive despite a hard host of races in many states President Donald Trump won handily in 2016.

Now Houston-based filmmaker Richard Linklater ("Slacker", "Dazed and Confused", "Boyhood", etc.) is reviving the weirdness in a new Fire Ted Cruz PAC ad (below)-a sequel to last week's "Is Ted Cruz "Tough As Texas"?" spot ("Watch the strangely delightful Richard Linklater-directed "Fire Ted Cruz" ad that's gone viral").

Cruz said O'Rourke was eager to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump that would lead to a partisan circus. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018, in San Antonio. You were all talk and no action.

On healthcare, O'Rourke said he favors expanding Medicaid and getting to universal health care.

O'Rourke said there needed to be a greater focus on screening methods for people entering the country, and hit Cruz for his vote against a permanent solution for Dreamers, recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

O'Rourke criticized Cruz for his unwillingness to stand up to Trump on a range of issues, and said he had failed to stop Trump from pushing tariffs that would hurt Texas farmers and businesses.
