According to Ted Cruz’s Democrat opponent Beto O’Rourke, he’s raised a whopping $6.7 million dollars in the first 3 months of 2018 in his bid to unseat Senator Ted Cruz. Cruz, one of the long standing Conservative voices in the United States Senate will be tough to unseat. The State of Texas doesn’t take too kindly to someone taking their guns. That’s exactly the platform that O’Rourke is running on.
O’Rourke’s team boasted on social media this morning that this was a grass roots movement. Claiming that more than 141,000 people in grassroots contributions had donated the $6.7 million.
