Cruz not anxious about the Democratic "blue wave"

Cruz not anxious about the Democratic

While he easily won his party's senate primary with almost 62 percent of the Democratic vote and his mostly Hispanic El Paso district by more than 90 percent, O'Rourke struggled in certain regions, particularly the Rio Grande Valley.

O'Rourke entered the race with little name recognition outside of El Paso, which he has represented in Congress since 2013.

But Tuesday also exposed the ongoing divide between Democrats' more moderate and liberal voices - divisions that dominated the party's 2016 presidential primary. O'Rourke is raising more money than Cruz so far but remains very unlikely to win in November. "And I don't see him making a big mistake". Whenever Congress isn't in session O'Rourke packs his days in Texas with events, driving himself between stops.

O'Rourke, an upstart but energetic candidate, hopes to capitalize on his growing star power and catch the blue wave his party is banking on across the country. Texas is and will remain, at least for a while longer, a Red State. He's promised to visit all 254 counties in Texas, and he's already reached 226 of them. Many were running in a record eight open congressional races this year in Texas — two of which are up for grabs after longtime GOP incumbents abandoned plans for re-election amid scandal.

Veronica Escobar of El Paso and state Sen. Texas has not elected a Democrat statewide since 1994.

Immediately after he was declared the victor in his race Cruz started running campaign ads against O'Rourke slamming his positions on immigration and guns which Cruz says are out of sync with most Texans. "He's exciting and he's new and he's not one of the usual suspects. So I think he's pretty strong for the election in Texas".

O'Rourke is expected to address supporters across the state via Facebook Live sometime Tuesday night.

He went on to compare O'Rourke to Davis, the 2014 Democratic gubernatorial nominee who became nationally famous for filibustering on behalf of abortion rights when she was in the legislature.

Gov. Greg Abbott also clinched the Republican nomination for governor and enters the general election as a heavy favorite against whoever emerges from the Democratic primary.

But once ordinary voters begin to tune in, he said the campaign will enter a new and more combative phase.
