Senate Candidates Making Final Push

After nearly two years of anticipation, the race is almost over for Texas’ Class I United States Senate seat, and the three candidates looking to claim victory are all making their final pushes across the Lone Star State.

On the Republican side, Senator Ted Cruz in across the state today, looking to bolster his chances for re-election. Cruz was at a rally in Cypress on Monday, with two final stops planned on his tour. Supporters of the Senator turned out in large numbers at his final stops, cheering for the Republican incumbent and former presidential contender.

Next, Democrat Beto O’Rourke was back on the campaign trail after a weekend of doorknocking and more across the state. O’Rourke made a few stops on Monday, and flew back to El Paso for his final rally before the conclusion of the election. O’Rourke also released a campaign advertisement on Monday, featuring the musical talents of Willie Nelson.

Finally, Libertarian Neal Dikeman has also been working to rally his supporters. Dikeman released a poll this weekend, showing him in second place among voters who have heard about his candidacy. The numbers bode well for the Libertarian, who is looking to make a big splash on election night.

A recent poll has the race neck-and-neck, with Cruz having a narrow edge over O’Rourke. Dikeman was not included in the poll.

Voters will decide this race on Tuesday night.
