Senator Cruz makes a campaign stop in Lubbock following debate

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Senator Ted Cruz makes his third stop in Lubbock within the past few months. Cruz spoke to a crowd at the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center just a day following his first debate with Beto O'Rourke.

The senator revisits many of the policy highlights from that debate including gun control, the war on drugs, immigration, and the protests of racial injustice from NFL players. 

Despite nearly breaking even with Congressman O'Rourke in recent polling, Cruz believes he is going to succeed in November with conservative voters' help.

"I've got incredible faith in the people of Texas and the common sense, conservative values and out here in West Texas, people understand, low taxes, low regulations that produces jobs," Cruz said.  "You know when Beto O'Rourke talks about abolishing ICE, defend sanctuary cities, people in West Texas and all across Texas know that's not a good idea, we need to secure our border."

Originally Lubbock was on a list of cities where Cruz and O'Rourke were going to host a debate. However, Cruz said that is unlikely even though he is all for it. He claims O'Rourke is not. The next two debates are in Houston and San Antonio.
