It feels sooooooo dishonest that an Irishman uses a Hispanic name in a heavily Hispanic district. Even is I was into open borders, no guns, state run health care, lax laws and higher taxes. It's like he's just looking to capitalize on the big percentage of people that go into the booth with no idea who to vote for.
So is it dishonest that Rafael Edward "El Guero" Cruz calls himself Ted in a predominantly Republican state? Is he then patronizing to these voters by trying to be less hispanic? :txflag:
While I get your point, “Ted” is a common nickname for “Edward” - as in, Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy - and Cruz’s middle name is Edward......not “Eduardo”. Whereas “Beto” would have you believe that his first name is Roberto .... which it isn’t.

Just a thought......

That makes me feel a bit better. I respect The Federalist’s analyses of most things.

Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

https://www.texastribune.org/2018/04/18 ... lose-call/

I’ve never heard of this guy until now, and all of a sudden, the Texas Tribune is saying that it’s too close to call? I don’t know much about him, but I went and checked O’Rourke’s website for his stances on 2nd Amendment issues, and he seems to be solidly in the “ban civilian access to ‘weapons of war’” camp.

Anybody know much about him, and does anyone believe that he really can beat Cruz?
