Ted Cruz meets with voters in Webster

Ted Cruz meets with voters in Webster”

Republican Sen.Ted Cruz (left) and Democratic challenger U.S. Rep.Beto O'Rourke. There were almost 45,000 "O'Rourke" tweets as well, and all three terms became top trends in the U.S. The tweets may lean toward O'Rourke, but as the congressman said onstage at Southern Methodist University, 50 percent of rural Texans don't have reliable access to broadband internet.

"This race is most likely to be determined in suburban districts of Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio", Matthew Wilson, a Professor of Political Science at SMU, told ABC News, "If Beto O'Rourke is going to win he's going to have to persuade a lot of moderate, traditional Republicans to cross party lines". That includes 94 percent of Cruz backers and 92 percent of O'Rourke backers.

"People who became convicts exclusively by dint of the color of their skin in a system that was radically unjust", O'Rourke continued.

Butler asks for deal from Timberwolves
He informed Timberwolves president and coach Tom Thibodeau of the request during a meeting Tuesday in Los Angeles, sources said. Bovada released odds on where Butler will play his first game of the season, and the Heat did not make that eight-team list.

The Reuters/Ipsos/UVA Center for Politics Poll released on Wednesday revealed that 47 percent of voters said they were in support of O'Rourke, while 45 percent said they favored Cruz. O'Rourke frequently complained that Cruz was misrepresenting his positions - at one point accusing the incumbent Republican of "slander".

Cruz painted O'Rourke, who favors a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, opposes building a wall along the border with Mexico, and supports some gun-control measures, as too radical for Texas. "Imagine the cost", O'Rourke said.

O'Rourke added that, while he and Cruz disagree on the best moves to make, he has no question that Cruz "wants to do the best for America".

Strawberry needle scare: Australia probe as 'vicious crime' widens
Cabinet minister Christopher Pyne says he understands why New Zealanders are baulking at Australian strawberries. A man in the town of York reported to police that he found a needle in a sink after washing strawberries.

Cruz, a seasoned debater for many years who gained even more prominent experience as a presidential candidate in 2016, will likely us tonight's battle with O'Rourke as a chance to calm Republican nerves that he could lose his seat and imperil the party's slim 51 to 49 majority in the U.S. Senate. But O'Rourke has focused heavily on courting women, Latinos and young voters, has developed a strong following on social media, and has proven to be a fund-raising dynamo, outpacing Cruz's efforts.

Looming over the race is the omnipresence of President Trump.
