When Beto O'Rourke announced his long-shot bid to unseat Texas Sen.

Former CIA Director John Brennan endorsed Democrat Beto O'Rourke in the Texas Senate race Friday. O'Rourke is heading to El Paso to finish an underdog campaign that drew national attention and took him through each of Texas' 254 counties. Republicans, however, are cautioning Democrats about being too confident, pointing out that historically there are far more Republicans among voters in Texas than Democrats.

"The liberals who are in Texas are really, really mad". Nearly five million people have voted early in the 30 Texas counties where 78 percent of registered voters live. Win or lose Texas' high-profile Senate race on Tuesday, Nov. 6, both Cruz and O'Rourke probably still have bright political futures, perhaps even plausible White House aspirations.

In recent months, as the race tightened, Cruz followed - traveling through towns like Longview, Amarillo and Wichita Falls, seeking to shore up his base in strongly Republican areas where O'Rourke has attracted large crowds. And early voter turnout has surpassed that from the 2012 presidential election. "They hate President Trump", Cruz said.
