Asked To Say Something Nice About Opponent, Cruz Praises O’Rourke’s Fight For Socialism, Higher Taxes




GOP Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) engaged in a fierce clash over immigration, police brutality, and President Donald Trump’s policies on Friday night.

Toward the end of the debate, the moderator prompted each candidate to say something nice about the other. O’Rourke praised Cruz for his dedication to public service and the family sacrifices that has entailed.

Cruz echoed his sentiments, but then quickly pivoted to a pointed attack on O’Rourke, casting him as a socialist akin to Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“I think you are absolutely sincere, like Bernie [Sanders], that you believe in expanding government and higher taxes. And I commend you for fighting for what you believe in,” Cruz said.

“True to form,” said Beto, disdainfully.
