The midterm elections are only two weeks away and the race for Texas’s open Senate seat couldn’t be closer. Incumbent Republican Ted Cruz is fighting to hold on to his job, but a website bearing his name is benefitting his opponent, Democrat Beto O’Rourke.
Cruz, a firebrand Canadian-born conservative and former federal prosecutor seeking a second term, somehow overlooked purchasing tedcruz.com, which is now a pro-O’Rourke site.
The simply laid-out page one clear message: down with Cruz.
“In 2016 Ted Cruz said: ‘We deserve leaders who stand for principle.'”
”VOTE AND SUPPORT BETO O’ROURKE!!!”
The site is drawing a lot of excitement.
The Twitterverse is urging voters to go to tedcruz.com to learn more about their favorite candidate.

You’d think someone as adept as Cruz would have bought the domain matching his name. Nope.
I read a couple weeks ago that the URL and a couple more with his name on them were bought up by some #Resistance activists and that they were preparing to help @BetoORourke out in the closing weeks of the election.
This is perfect!

Rookie mistake! Can't believe his campaign mgr didn't reserve the domain.

His campaign manager probably doesn't like him either.

O’Rourke knew what to do.
