According to the latest polls from RealClearPolitics in this match-up between Ted Cruz and Democrat Beto O'Rourke, Cruz has been consistently leading the race, in fact, there is not a single survey, according to RCP where O'Rourke is leading. But Ted Cruz is wisely not taking any chances and is asking the Trumpster to come to Texas to campaign for him.
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz has asked President Donald Trump to come to Texas to campaign for him.
During a campaign stop in Seguin late Monday, Cruz said he has reached out to his former rival for the White House to help him with his re-election effort against Democrat Beto O’Rourke.
“I would certainly welcome his support, and I hope to see him in Texas,” Cruz said, standing outside the Dixie Grill in Seguin. “I think we are likely to see the president down in Texas before the election.”
Cruz said while his relationship with Trump has had its “ups and downs” due to their 2016 GOP primary battle, he has tried to become an ally to the president. He said he has been in constant contact with the White House and Trump directly to offer his help in getting legislation through the Senate.
