Female Hecklers Attack Ted Cruz For Supporting Kavanaugh. His Response Is Perfect

Earlier this week, President Trump expressed his support for Cruz on Twitter and berated his opponent. The senator later said he'd like to make Thursday's event a debate, but O'Rourke didn't agree.

"Senator Cruz won't be honest with you", O'Rourke said on Monday. After all, Cruz has aligned himself with a president who in 2016 insulted his wife and baselessly accused his father of killing JFK, and in this election, has tried to win votes using O'Rourke's denouncement of the Dallas police officer who killed 26-year-old Botham Jean in his own home. "He's dishonest. It's why the president called him "Lyin" Ted' and it's why the nickname stuck".

Cruz defended Kavanaugh and later voted in favor of his confirmation after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced shortly before the confirmation vote was held, which delayed the process. He alluded to Trump insulting Heidi Cruz's looks during the GOP primaries, and alleging - without a shred of evidence - that Cruz's father had a role in the John F. Kennedy assassination.

Trump says being ‘very tough’ in talks with Putin
Aide Yuri Ushakov said that while a meeting should take place, "it would be heady to let the dust settle" first. The one-on-one meeting between Putin and Trump lasted for more than two hours.

O'Rourke now represents the state's 16th Congressional District in Congress and appeared at a CNN town hall moderated by Dana Bash in McAllen, Texas, as he continues his campaign to unseat Sen. Asked by moderator Dana Bash if he regretted his reference to the insult, O'Rourke hesitated, then told her, "I don't know that that's the way I want to be talking in this campaign". But polls that once showed him staying close to Cruz now have the incumbent leading by nine points - the same margin by which Trump carried the state in 2016.

The rally is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Ted Cruz said that his position on impeachment hadn't changed, even as Cruz has used the issue to galvanize conservative voters against O'Rourke's campaign.
