Ted Cruz uses jingle to take opening jibe at November opponent

Ted Cruz uses jingle to take opening jibe at November opponent

Following O'Rourke's primary win on Wednesday, Cruz released a cringeworthy radio ad blasting O'Rourke for using the nickname "Beto" instead of his given name "Robert". "My name is Rafael Edward Cruz".

Sen. Ted Cruz's newest ad targeting his Democratic challenger is a country jingle that warns, "If you're going to run in Texas, you can't be a liberal, man".

CNN's Chris Cuomo confronted Cruz about the snarky lyrics on Tuesday night. You go by Ted. The problem? Cruz himself is really named Raphael "Ted" Cruz. Colbert exclaimed. "What are you doing?"

Reports say O'Rourke has already raised $2.3 million with Cruz raising at least $800,000.

"Here's what I'm gonna do", O'Rourke said when asked if he would respond with his own song.

"You're absolutely right", the Texas Republican told CNN.

"We can get into name-calling and talk about why the other person is such an terrible guy, or we can focus on the big things that we want to do for the future of our country, for the generations that will succeed us", he said.

Energized Democratic voters appeared in droves on Tuesday primary elections not seen in more than a decade to prove the party's intention to try to oust the incumbent Republican senator.

Mark Jones, a Rice University political scientist, said one implied motive might be to remind Texas voters that O'Rourke isn't of Latino descent.

Democrats in Texas face an uphill battle: the state hasn't elected a Democrat to the Senate since 1988, and Trump won there in 2016 by 9 percentage points.
