Poll shows Texas Dem Castro leading Cruz

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) edges out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in a potential 2018 Senate matchup, a new poll shows.

According to the statewide poll numbers released Wednesday by Texas Lyceum, Castro gets 35 percent support of Texas adults in the potential matchup, while Cruz gets 31 percent.

And in a matchup between Cruz and Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas), the two are tied at 30 percent.

A Democrat hasn't won a Senate race in Texas in 29 years. Cruz, who came in second in last year's GOP presidential primary, has long been considered a big favorite.
