Cruz Won’t Commit to Serving Out Senate Term

Beto O’Rourke (D) pledged in an interview with the Texas Tribune “to serving out the full six-year term in the Senate if elected, pushing down buzz that he might make a run at the White House in 2020.”
Sen. Ted Cruz (R) did not quite say the same. His reply, which went on for two minutes but did not answer the question, concluded with, “We should be standing up for who we are as Texans and Americans.”

Ted Cruz’s hometown newspaper endorses Beto O’Rourke: ‘Cruz’s repellent personality hamstrings him’
This Friday, one of Texas’s biggest newspapers endorsed Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic challenger to Ted Cruz’s Senate seat.
In a piece published this Friday, the Houston Chronicle’s editorial board announced that it was “enthusiastically” endorsing O’Rourke in his bid to unseat the incumbent Republican.
“With eyes clear but certainly not starry, we enthusiastically endorse Beto O’Rourke for U.S. Senate,” the Chronicle’s editorial board wrote. “The West Texas congressman’s command of issues that matter to this state, his unaffected eloquence and his eagerness to reach out to all Texans make him one of the most impressive candidates this editorial board has encountered in many years.”
The endorsement acknowledged that O’Rourke faces “long odds” in his quest. If O’Rourke were to win, he’d be the first Texas Democrat elected to the Senate in 30 years. According to the Chronicle’s editorial board, a win for O’Rourke would be good for Texas “not only because of his skills, both personal and political, but also because of the manifest inadequacies of the man he would replace.”
Sadly, the United States is crumbling so fast that Cruz and a whole lot of other clowns will handing onto their seats.
If that is the case , I hope you are not relying on OAS and CPP for your comfort . Good luck George .
