Texas Senator Ted Cruz wraps up his reelection campaign, pulling out all the stops in a final bid to ensure Texans keep the Lone Star State red.
In a marathon final push, the Texas Republican held four events in three counties on Monday.

Cruz slammed his Democrat challenger Beto O’Rourke for demonizing law enforcement and denouncing the president’s Supreme Court picks.
“And Beto O’Rourke wants to see left-wing radicals on the court who will vote to take away your free speech, who will vote to take away your religious liberty, who will vote to take away your Second Amendment rights and that ain’t Texas,” exclaimed Cruz.
Polls show the race in a dead heat as Cruz holds just a slight lead over O’Rourke, which is casting some doubt on whether Republicans will keep their hold on Texas.
