Ted Cruz challenger raising record-breaking amounts of cash

Beto O'Rourke Fundraising Triples Ted Cruz's In Texas Senate Race

Sen. Cruz's campaign announced earlier this month that he raised just over $12 million during the same time period - from July through the end of September. In the second quarter, he more than doubled Cruz's fundraising, $10.4 million to $4.6 million. A New York Times/Siena College poll released on Friday showed Cruz with an 8 percentage point lead over O'Rourke. To see more, visit KUT 90.5.

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke addressed supporters during a campaign rally at White Oak Music Hall on October 8 in Houston. "But every single quarter, including this one, the majority of money we've raised has mostly come from the state of Texas in low dollar amounts".

Texas Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke is running for Republican Sen.

In their latest exciting moral victory, Democrats have now dropped $38.1 million on failing Texas senatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke, bringing his grand total to $61.2 million in a race he now trails by seven points, according to the RealClearPolitics poll average.

Cruz has repeatedly brushed off his opponent's monster fundraising, saying the "extreme left" is energized by hatred for President Donald Trump and that, since there are more Republicans in Texas than Democrats, all he has to do is turn out his base to win.

Djokovic , who endured a turbulent last season with injury and off-court issues, said they were "both different players" now. He is on a 17-match winning streak and is 26-1 in matches played since the start of Wimbledon .

O'Rourke's efforts to get out the Democratic message will be offset by the combined heavy spending of Republicans Cruz and Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who has begun running statewide ads, Jillson said. Congressional candidates must report their third-quarter fundraising and spending to the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

O'Rourke has refused to go negative, instead recently recording a 30-second TV spot in real-time - including doing multiple takes - on Facebook live. Ted Cruz and Cruz is now seven points ahead of O'Rourke, according to Real Clear Politics.

Spending on presidential, congressional and local election campaigns has been steadily rising in the United States in recent years, partly as a result of unlimited spending by outside groups.The Center for Responsive Politics expects this election cycle to set a new fundraising and spending record.

Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales rates the race Likely Republican.

Nevertheless, money does make a difference. When asked if it was "that much" O'Rourke said, "We raised a good deal of money".
