Billboards In Texas To Showcase Anti-Cruz Trump Tweet

The race for Ted Cruz’s U.S. Senate seat keeps getting more and more heated as polls show Cruz in almost a dead heat with Democratic challenger, Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

Texas hasn’t elected a Democrat to the Senate in three decades.

Last week it was reported that an activist group is raising money to place anti-Cruz billboards in the state quoting a 2016 Donald Trump tweet which claimed Cruz was “all talk, no action.”

Trump has now announced that he would be holding a “major rally” for Cruz in Texas next month.

Several recent polls have shown Cruz and O’Rourke in a dead heat, though the deep-red state has not elected a Democrat to the Senate in three decades.

In related news, possible 2020 presidential challenger Michael Avenatti says he will hold a competing “resistance rally” in Texas at the same time as the Cruz/Trump event.
