Texas Senator Ted Cruz has a warning for Texas Republicans. Texas Democrats will turn out to vote in big numbers when the midterm election rolls around in November.
Cruz made those comments in a speech for the Fort Bend County Republican Party over the weekend, and party chair Jacey Jetton told KTRH he agrees with Cruz.
“We have a big job going into the election cycle to make sure we turn out and energize all of our Republican voters,” Jetton said.
Cruz faces what some see as a tough Democratic opponent in Congressman Beto O'Rourke, but what does O'Rourke stand for other than 'I'm not Ted Cruz?'
“If you listen to what he is saying you see a real sense of being an advocate for the state of Texas and looking at and solving real problems,” explained Matt Angle of the Lone Star Project.
Angle says Democrats have a real chance in November.
“Texans vote for Texas, and I think democrats have the opportunity to build the type of coalition that wins,” Angle stated.
But no Texas Democrat has won a statewide race since 1994.
