Activists have successfully fundraised the amount necessary to plaster a tweet from Donald Trump attacking Sen.
A GoFundMe page organized by USA Latinx raised almost $10,000 to place a billboard in Texas ahead of the rally that would display one of the president's tweets from 2016 bashing his former political opponent. "Ted Cruz win his re-election", read the fundraising description.
On Friday, Trump announced he would headline a rally for Cruz in October at a large stadium somewhere in Texas. "As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement".
The tweet goes on to say the Cruz's Democratic opponent, El Paso Congressman Beto O'Rourke, would be "a disaster for Texas".
Hogg, along with the liberal activist and social media presence Claude Taylor, contributed to a fundraiser "initiated by Antonio Arellano" of the group USA Latinx, according to a GoFundMe page associated with the fundraiser. Cruz condemned Trump's statements at the time as "classless", calling him a "coward".Читайте также: Le'Veon Bell's Agent Expresses Concerns With Workload
The tweets are from an era where Trump had nicknamed Cruz "Lyin' Ted".
But he still faces an uphill battle against incumbent Republican Sen.
Those close to Cruz's campaign report that internal polling shows O'Rourke trailing by just 5 or 6 percentage points, which is in line with recent public polls.
Last week.an NBC News/Marist poll found O'Rourke within four points of Cruz, at 45 percent to 49 percent. His fundraising is strong and he's going on "Ellen" this week.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
