Received this e-mail today from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee in support of Beto O’Rourke’s (D. TX) U.S. Senate campaign:
BIG NEWS! Cook Political Report moves Texas Senate race to ‘toss-up.’ The Hill reports:
“The move follows a series of polls showing Cruz with a small single-digit lead over his insurgent opponent, who has outraised Cruz by millions since the campaign began.
“A survey by left-leaning pollster Public Policy Polling found Cruz with just a 3-point lead over his opponent on Thursday among registered Texas voters. A Reuters–Ipsos poll the day before found O'Rourke with a 2-point lead.”
HELP PROGRESSIVE BETO O'ROURKE DEFEAT TED CRUZ!
MSNBC this week quoted one of the smartest Republican operatives in Texas saying: “Beto really is giving Ted Cruz a run for his money. Beto O’Rourke was comparable to a Robert Kennedy in terms of his political talent.”
PCCC members have given over $100,000 to make this race competitive, and political observers nationwide have noticed.
Beto O'Rourke is a progressive who refuses corporate money — he needs OUR help to get the rest of the way there. Ted Cruz has already started spending his millions on TV ads.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
