Republicans are sounding the alarm that Sen. Ted Cruz could be in real danger of losing his reelection bid to Rep. Beto O’Rourke. That's why Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick reportedly went to the White House earlier this year to ask that President Trump come to Texas to campaign for Cruz, which he’s set to do in October.
Meantime O’Rourke continues his celebrity tour on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, who talked with him about why he goes by “Beto” and whether he would support a wall along the Texas-Mexico border.
And Republicans are hoping they can snag another Texas Senate seat this coming week in a special election in South Texas.
