Beto O’Rourke is close to getting Ted Cruz’s seat. Flipping it would be a huge win for Democrats and End Citizens United who have been on a huge role lately on gaining Republican seats. In Texas, which by far is a largely Republican state that would be a success. The question is, does Texas really want this? Read more news about the group on USA Today.
Judging by how many people vote Republican in the Lonestar State, the answer to that question is no. It does matter who gets out to vote so that either this will or will not happen. One of the key issues is getting rid of influential money tactics. End Citizens United has started this campaign where politicians are pledging not to take in too much money that can sway things in their favor. This group is all about keeping things fair and transparent. In politics, those kinds of principles are very much needed. If O’Rourke gets the seat, it would be wonderful to see what he does with it and what it means for Trump’s presidency. His winning Cruz’s seat will definitely shake things up.
End Citizens United has a poll that puts O’Rourke in position to take that seat by only just a few points. O’Rourke has been tirelessly campaigning and making promises that people really want to see kept. Hopefully, what he does can make a difference. Politicians as of late have been plagued with all kinds of scandals with Trump endorsing them. Now it is the Democrats turn to shape the course of the future. We can only hope that they will steer things in the right direction. End Citizens United are really looking for their candidate to win this thing in Texas. It will be all up to the voters.
Does O’Rourke have a chance to win Cruz’s seat? Yes. Will he win it? It depends on who you ask. It is not impossible but will Texas believe in O’Rourke or continue to see Cruz as their choice? Each man has an equal chance of winning if voters turn out.: http://www.politifact.com/personalities/end-citizens-united/
