Democratic Rep. Appears Ready To Announce Challenge To Cruz

While the young representative from El Paso unseated a long-serving fellow Democrat in 2012 (Rep. Sylvester Reyes), his anti-gun positions and other liberal leanings would make him a very unlikely to unseat a popular Republican senator who finished in second place in a field of 17 major candidates, the largest ever US presidential primary race. Ted Cruz for what will be a long shot race for the Senate. Rep. Joaquin Castro (Texas), a rising star in the Democratic Party, is said to be considering a run for the seat.

A contest between O'Rourke and Castro for the right to challenge Cruz is likely to serve as a defining moment for the state Democratic Party. O'Rourke told ABC-7 it is important for him to share the decision with El Paso first.

O'Rourke has previously said he's strongly considering running against Cruz, who unsuccessfully ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.

While there was a boost of attention for O'Rourke in his bipartisan road trip with Hurd, Castro and his brother Julian have an established statewide identification.

"I'm very moved to do it", the 44-year-old said in an interview earlier in March. "I have a big announcement to make on Friday".

Trump also said Democrats succeeded in confusing the public, claiming, "lots of people don't realize how good our bill was". Earlier this month, he said flatly, "We'll have 218 (votes) when this thing comes to the floor, I can guarantee you that".

O'Rourke, according to Democrat sources, reported through the Chronicle, O'Rourke is planning to announce his campaign on Friday. That also coincides with a Friday "meet and greet" in Dallas, followed by three public appearances Saturday in Waco and Austin, finishing up on Sunday in Houston.

That well-publicized event came on the heels of a glowing Washington Post profile just weeks earlier that described O'Rourke as a "Mexico-loving liberal" and detailed his past as a technology entrepreneur and a member of a punk rock band.

O'Rourke is a 3-term Congressman who has supported term limits in the past.

In 2012, Cruz eeked up the Republican primary polls by relentlessly running negative ads against then Lt. Governor David Dewhurst.

One of his top issues has been to end the War on Drugs and legalize recreational marijuana. He also has pushed for greater care of veterans and immigration reform.
