Rep. Beto O’Roarke trails GOP Sen. Ted Cruz by six points in a new poll by UT-Texas Tribune in the race for a Texas U.S. Senate seat. O’Roarke has run a strong campaign against Cruz visiting every county in the state. O’Roarke has made headlines by calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. The conservative Houston Chronicle endorsed O’Roarke last week. Still, Texas has not elected a Democrat to statewide office in two decades.
