Senator Cruz campaigns in Lubbock

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Senator Ted Cruz stumped in Lubbock Monday following his tour of the state's military bases. It's Senator Cruz's first official campaign stop here this cycle, a guest of the Lubbock County Republican Party.

Senator Cruz first focused on his four domestic priorities: tax cuts, regulatory reform, repealing Obamacare, and replacing activist judges in federal courts. He said the Republican majority has delivered.

"So a year in a half into it we have seen tremendous results for the people of Texas, but we have a lot more work to do," Senator Cruz said. "We need to keep working lowering taxes, we need to make the individual tax cuts permanents, we need to secure our border, we need to deliver on our promise to the people of Texas."

Speaking to a packed Triple J Chophouse, Senator Cruz said he does recognize the battle he is up against come November. He said he continues to have the upper hand against El Paso Representative Beto O'Rourke. 

"You know usually in a general election in Texas a Democrat will at least pretend to run to the middle, will at least pretend to be a moderate," Cruz said. "Congressman Beto O'Rourke is not doing that. He is running hard hard left like Bernie Sanders. Now what does that mean? That means he voted against the tax cut and he is promising to raise your taxes. It means he wants to bring back the Obama-era job-killing regulations that hammer Texas, that hammered oil and gas that hammered farmers and ranchers. It means in Obamacare he supports and wants to expand it to full on socialized medicine, put in the federal government in charge of your healthcare and your doctor."

Recent polling has shown Cruz with a slim lead over O'Rourke among likely voters within the margin of error. Senator Cruz now heads to the DFW area to continue his campaign trail.
