Ex punk-rocker O'Rourke launches longshot bid against Cruz


Beto O'Rourke, a third-term Democratic congressman from El Paso, Texas will run for the U.S. Senate in 2018, aiming to unseat former GOP presidential contender Sen. The Houston Chronicle then reported that the announcement was indeed about the Senate race and that O'Rourke, who is a Democrat, would enter the race. O'Rourke, who now represents the far West Texas District, has made no secret of his interest in running for the seat. He has already filed papers to run for re-election, but his campaign spokeswoman declined comment on O'Rourke's plans.

The former businessman's decision to run for Senate is an idea that he has reportedly toyed with for some time now. Will Hurd, Texas Republican, on a spur-of-the-moment bipartisan road trip from San Antonio to Washington, D.C., which was documented on social media, naturally.

O'Rourke looks to be the most formidable Democratic Senate contender Texas has seen in years. "He plans to make his decision in the coming weeks".

O'Rourke said he speaks to Castro daily.

NASA spokesman Dan Huot said the three remaining shields were installed to cover the most vulnerable spots, the report said. The third spacewalk, by Whitson and European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet, now is planned for April 6.

Jones added that Castro "has always led the charge on tough fights, so one way or another, he will be on the front lines of the 2018 midterm elections doing everything he can to continue to hold Republicans accountable". He's also in favor of term limits.

O'Rourke - a fluent Spanish speaker who lives on the border and says that it is the safest and best place to be - would offer a stark contrast to the politics of Cruz and Trump.

From a national perspective, the U.S. Senate race in Texas is an afterthought.

If O'Rourke secures the Democratic Party's nomination, he would likely face an uphill battle in a Republican-dominated state - since 1994, zero Democrats have been able to attain any statewide office. The Democratic Party is preoccupied with protecting 10 incumbents who represent states President Donald Trump carried in 2016. An able campaigner, the Texas senator boosted his national prominence past year after finishing second in the crowded 2016 GOP presidential primary.
