Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) has committed to serving his full term in the U.S. Senate if he beats the dishonest incumbent Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) this November.
During an interview he had with The Texas Tribune earlier in the month, O’Rourke was very clear that he would serve “every single day of my full six-year term for the people of Texas.”
However, the Tribune reported that Cruz demurred when he was asked the same question during a separate interview that the newspaper conducted with the soulless senator.
“I am focused on the United States Senate,” said Cruz when asked in that Texas Tribune interview whether he could possibly run for president for 2020.
The Tribune said that it then followed that up with another question for Cruz, “Can you commit to serving out your term?”
The Texas Tribune reported that Ted Cruz started his dishonest non-answer with: “You know, as we stand here today, the Texas Board of Education is getting ready to vote on a proposal, a recommendation they received, to delete the word ‘heroic’ from the description of the defenders of the Alamo.” Of course, talking about something totally different when asked a direct question is a sign of a very dishonest and untrustworthy person.
His dishonest and snake-like response ended a long two minutes later with Ted Cruz asserting “we should be standing up for who we are as Texans and Americans,” the Tribune reported.
Speculation has been widespread that Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke might make runs for president in 2020. That speculation is fueled by the fact that Beto O’Rourke’s Senate bid has gotten significant national attention, especially since he’s running against Ted Cruz, a man with no substance, only dishonest appearance.
Cruz ran a competitive presidential primary against Donald Trump in 2016 and Cruz has not ruled out another run for the White House (Lord have mercy). Asked by the Texas Tribune this month if he was planning on a 2020 run, Ted Cruz said: “I am focused on the United States Senate.”
But Donald Trump will seek a second term for 2020 (if he’s still president by then), meaning that Ted Cruz would have to fight the president from his own party should he launch a White House campaign.
