Texas GOP attack on Beto O'Rourke completely backfires

...

O'Rourke's campaign for Ted Cruz's Senate seat has been gaining support with young voters, thanks to his progressive platform that includes decriminalizing cannabis, single-payer healthcare, and immigration reform.

Oh, and he was in a punk band.

The Texas GOP attacked O'Rourke by tweeting a photo from the Democratic candidate's days as a bassist for the punk rock band Foss. "Sorry, can't debate," the text over the very punk rock photo says. "We have a gig."



The tweet was spurred by O'Rourke declining to debate Cruz on Friday. Last month, Cruz proposed five debates leading up to the election and sent an outline with locations, topics, and dates.

According to O'Rourke, Cruz's campaign has tried to dictate the debates' moderators and talking points, and his own campaign is "trying to introduce more of a collaborative style to the negotiations than he [Cruz] may be used to."

12. He's not proposing

He's demanding to have it his way on time, venues, moderators, everything. Beto has wanted debates all along, but he's too smart to fall for Cruz's bullshit.

7. Cruz is feeling the heat. Beto needs to hold firm on debates

 

And not let Cruz dictate.
