'Divisive, Dangerous': TX Sheriff Slams Beto O'Rourke for Comments on Police

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) shake hands after a debate at McFarlin Auditorium at SMU on September 21, 2018 in Dallas, Texas. Snappy and heavy on snark, Cruz and O'Rourke held nothing back in the first of three debates. There were almost 45,000 "O'Rourke" tweets as well, and all three terms became top trends in the U.S. The tweets may lean toward O'Rourke, but as the congressman said onstage at Southern Methodist University, 50 percent of rural Texans don't have reliable access to broadband internet.

Cruz and O'Rourke will face off again September 30 in Houston and October 16 in San Antonio.

The Quinnipiac poll released yesterday found Cruz with a nine-point lead in this hotly contested race.

Cruz and O'Rourke are facing each other in a surprisingly competitive US Senate race in Texas, a Republican stronghold.

O'Rourke in turn blasted Cruz for supporting massive deportations of illegal immigrants.

"I think Congressman O'Rourke is passionate, he is energetic", Cruz then told the crowd.

"True to form", O'Rourke replied.

"You see a lot more O'Rourke signs in affluent Republican-leaning areas than you might typically see for a Democratic candidate". In Mr. Cruz's case, the senator showcased a masterful command of nearly every topic, while Mr. O'Rourke unfailingly managed to take any issue and tie it to a specific individual he has met while crisscrossing Texas.

Mr. O'Rourke was measured in his criticism of Mr. Trump, although he did not dispute Mr. Cruz's point that Mr. O'Rourke is the only Democratic Senate candidate in these midterms who has vowed to vote to impeach Mr. Trump should the chance arise. "Cruz, are just not gonna cut it anymore", O'Rourke said.

A truck sporting a billboard plastered with a negative tweet from Trump about Cruz during the presidential campaign was parked outside the debate hall hours before the two men were set to face off.

More fireworks flared up as Cruz and O'Rourke tackled the topic of their respective relationships with President Donald Trump.

Cruz said he could sum up his position in four words: "Legal: Good".

"We need a junior senator who will stand up to this president", O'Rourke said.

Among the issues that O'Rourke had with Cruz's proposed debate schedule was every one fell on a Friday evening during high school football season.

It was a heated first Texas Senate debate Friday between between Sen.
