Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) is reporting historic fundraising totals, but it's not translating to higher poll numbers against Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

Beto O'Rourke is touting his new endorsements from several leading Texas newspapers in his insurgent bid to unseat incumbent Sen.

In Dallas Wednesday morning he told supporters, "We've got a bus as big as the state of Texas".

In a closing swing through red pockets of the state ahead of the November 6 election, O'Rourke showed he is not giving up hope that he can persuade voters who lean Republican to support his campaign and score an improbable victory in the Texas Senate race.

Saturday also wasn't the first time that James has shown love for O'Rourke.

This Editorial Board has recommended conservative Republicans such as George W. Bush and Mitt Romney for president, along with U.S. Sens.

Notably, the Chronicle previously endorsed Ted Cruz in the 2012 Election. He made it a priority to visit all 254 counties in Texas during the race, something that few candidates do.

O'Rourke has become a surprisingly formidable opponent for Cruz. "But you are the energy that is driving this campaign". The Star-Telegram Editorial Board endorses Beto O'Rourke for USA senator.

LeBron James is a force on the basketball court but is an even greater one off of it. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison.

At the end of the previous fundraising period - September 30 - O'Rourke and Cruz had raised a total of $89.9 million, with O'Rourke responsible for roughly two-thirds of that, according to a Texas Tribune analysis.

Trump is campaigning to stave off a Democratic push to take control of the U.S. House of Representatives and possibly the Senate, when they could derail or stall much of his agenda and increase congressional oversight and investigation of his administration.

In Tyler, Texas, he can count on Yvonne Thrash as one vote he flipped.
