Beto O’Rourke Smokes Ted Cruz In Yet Another Fundraising Quarter

Ted Cruz still has a five-point lead in a latest poll, but a momentum is all on Beto’s side. (People on Twitter claim are’s anoar new poll showing him within two points of Cruz, but I can’t find it.)

This kind of fundraising edge can really increase his odds in a state like Texas. He doesn’t accept contributions from corporations, so this is all people power. (Remember, Cruz will have outside groups like a NRA & evangelicals working to GOTV for him. What we do know is, taking this Senate seat from a Republican in Texas would be a seismic event that wouldn’t bode well for a future of a GOP. Via a Texas Tribune:

Beto O’Rourke, a Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Texas, raised more than $10.4 million over a past three months, he announced Wednesday, revealing a sum that takes his already massive fundraising to new heights.

& a El Paso congressman again vastly outraised a Republican incumbent, Ted Cruz, who took in less than half of his challenger’s haul — $4.6 million — at a same time, according to his campaign. O’Rourke also took a decisive lead in cash on h& over Cruz with four months to Election Day, $14 million to $10.4 million.
