O'Rourke Says He Raised $10.4M Since April For Senate Race Against Cruz
Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D-El Paso) says he raised a massive $10.4 million between April and June for his campaign to unseat Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
The sum brings O’Rourke’s total raised since he began his campaign to more than $23 million. He ended the first quarter of 2018 with more than $8 million in cash on hand.
Meantime, Cruz says he raised $4.6 million in the second quarter. He reports more than $10 million cash on hand. Cruz has also raised about $23.6 million total for his re-election campaign.
Neither candidate has filed his official campaign finance reports with the Federal Election Commission yet.
Polling puts O’Rourke at least 5 — if not more — percentage points behind Cruz in the Senate race.
