Ted Cruz Tries to Smear Beto O'Rourke with Barbecued Tofu

Ted Cruz Americans are 'Dreamers' also

It's the first of three scheduled ahead of Election Day.

Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz and Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke, locked in a fierce contest that has become one of the most watched in the United States this midterm cycle, will face off Friday night in a debate at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

There are two other debates - September 30 at the University of Houston and October 16 in San Antonio. Cruz said that O'Rourke was "out of step" with Texans as a liberal. He then suggested he wants the woman who accused him of sexual assault to testify "respectfully" before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"It is why some have called this", he concluded, "I think it is an apt description, the new Jim Crow".

O'Rourke, a US representative from El Paso, called for the FBI to investigate Ford's claims, something that Senate Republicans have resisted, and argued that Kavanaugh's nomination should be rejected. Among Texas likely voters who choose a candidate, 93 percent say their mind is made up.

Liverpool enjoying best start in 57 years after PSG win
It was not an easy game because PSG are one of the best teams in the world but we played very well and deserved to win. Liverpool will look to maintain their ideal start to the Premier League season when they host Southampton on Saturday.

After a concise summary of the importance of the Supreme Court's Heller decision which reaffirmed an individual right to bear arms, Mr. Cruz ended his remarks declaring Mr. O'Rourke is about "writing the Second Amendment out of the Bill of Rights".

"We're talking about criminal justice reform", O'Rourke said to the audience, "let's talk about where this problem started". "Imagine the stain on our conscience".

President Donald Trump has announced that he'll rally in Texas for his once bitter rival Cruz next month - previously unthinkable in a state where Republicans usually rack up landslide victories. O'Rourke shouted out his "uncle Raymond", who taught him to shoot a firearm and was in law enforcement.

Mr. O'Rourke claimed things like "universal background checks" would make schools and other places "demonstrably safer", before chiding Mr. Cruz that "thoughts and prayers are not going to cut it".

O'Rourke went first and noted that both he and Cruz have small children - and it's tough to leave them to do their jobs.
