    President Donald Trump let bygones be bygones Monday with his former rival presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, praising the Texas Republican before heading to Houston to rally for him. When the two men were duking it out for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Trump famously hurled insults at Cruz, christening him with one of Trump's signature monikers: "Lyin' Ted." Trump also went after Cruz's family, suggesting Cruz's father was involved in the John F. Kennedy assassination and targeting Cruz's wife Heidi for her appearance. But the president made a reversal of his past insults as he prepared for his highly...

    HOUSTON (KXAN) -- President Trump is planning a Texas-sized tailgate before his Houston Make-America Great Again rally scheduled at the Houston Toyota Center on Monday. His campaign decided to host what they are calling the 'Big Texas Tailgater' after receiving 100,000 requests for tickets to the previously planned rally with Ted Cruz. The tailgate party will feature food trucks, music by the Marcus Eldridge Band and the Will Carter Band, appearances by Trump Campaign spokespeople and big screens to see President Trump’s speech. “Texas is big and so will be the turnout for our MAGA rally in Houston, Texas Monday,”...

    Supporters are lining up for President Trump's big rally in Texas, one whole day before the event will take place. With his 2020 campaign boasting "100,000+" people being interested in attending, lines of people outside the venue, shown across multiple blocks in photos tweeted by CNN's Betsy Klein, further indicate high enthusiasm for the event. The rally, set for Monday evening at the Toyota Center in Houston, is poised to be the most powerful boost yet for Sen. Ted Cruz, who will share the stage with the man he once opposed for the presidency. The Republican incumbent faces a surprisingly...

    Michael Avenatti has backed off his pledge to hold a "resistance" rally in Texas on the same day President Trump holds one for Sen. Ted Cruz in Houston. As the Trump campaign announced that more than 100,000 requests were made for tickets for the event Monday, Avenatti told Geoff Bennett of NBC News that a scheduling conflict prevented him from holding a counter-rally. "It's Beto's show because it's his race," Avenatti was quoted as saying, referring to Cruz's Democratic challenger, Rep. Beto O'Rourke. Early last month, Avenatti, who is the lawyer to porn star Stormy Daniels, said he would hold...

    The Telephone Consumer Protection Act bans the use of “automated telephone equipment to send texts or calls to a person’s cellphone without their permission except for emergency purposes,” according to The Star-Telegram. This is not the first time O’Rourke’s campaign has faced backlash for claims of inappropriate use of text messages. The campaign came under fire in September for allegedly sending a text message to voters asking for “volunteers to help transport undocumented immigrants” to the polls, according to The New York Times.

    Nearly 78,000 people have signed up to attend President Trump’s rally with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Monday, which is scheduled to take place in a venue that holds only 18,000. According to the polls, Cruz, who is running for a second term, enjoys a healthy but far from Texas-sized single-digit lead over Media Cover Boy Beto O’Rourke. By comparison, Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is up a whopping 20 points over his Democrat opponent. So the president is headed to Houston to ensure there are no surprises.The real news, though, with this 78,000 number is how popular Trump remains...

    Carly Fiorina said on Thursday that President Donald Trump has reached “a new low” with his recent attacks on Stormy Daniels, a porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and has sued him for defamation. “I think the habit of insulting one’s political enemies is unfortunately long standing in this country, and he has brought it to a new low ― a fine art,” Fiorina told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “There’s no question that in politics personal insults work and they rile people up,” Fiorina said, adding that she thinks the insult “diminishes” the Oval Office....

    Originally scheduled to be held at the NRG Arena on the NRG Park grounds, President Donald J. Trump's planned Oct. 22 rally for Senator Ted Cruz has been moved to the larger Toyota Center in downtown Houston. Trump had taken some heat from critics for previously promising that the event would be held at the "biggest stadium in Texas we can find" and instead settled for a smallish arena with a capacity of 8,000. The Toyota Center, first opened in October 2003, has a listed capacity of up to 19,000 for concerts and 18,300 for basketball. One of President Trump's...

    Attention, journalists of America: Time is running out! You have under three weeks left to publish your last batch of over-the-top pre-election puff pieces on Texas Democrat/cross-country liberal sensation/wing-and-a-prayer Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke! It is here that we must face the difficult truth: Barring a GOP-related disaster of some sort, O’Rourke — he of that ineffable “cool factor” and “special sauce,” at least according to easily impressed columnists at the Washington Post — is likely to lose big. According to the latest polls, Senator Ted Cruz leads him by anywhere between seven and nine points. Tuesday’s debate between the two,...

    Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke said at a CNN town hall Thursday night that he would still vote to impeach President Donald Trump. The El Paso congressman challenging Sen. Ted Cruz said that his position on impeachment hadn't changed, even as Cruz has used the issue to galvanize conservative voters against O'Rourke's campaign. Asked by CNN's Dana Bash if he had changed his mind after saying he'd vote to impeach Trump this summer, O'Rourke said, "I haven't." He pointed to the ongoing probe into whether Trump's 2016 campaign colluded with Russia. "There may be an open question as to...

Danny Deraney, whose clientele has included A-listers like Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Madonna, told NBC News in another profile of O'Rourke that he has effectively swept the famously progressive town off its feet: Danny Deraney, a Hollywood publicist who has worked with celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Madonna, said he hasn't seen Los Angeles this excited about a national politician in years.

    President Trump’s campaign has moved next week’s rally with Sen. Ted Cruz to a bigger venue in Texas after citing an “unprecedented” demand for tickets. Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted the venue change Thursday, saying the response for tickets to Monday’s rally in Houston has been "HUGE and unprecedented." The campaign rally will now be held at the Toyota Center, which can seat up to 19,000 people for concerts. The previous venue, NRG Arena, holds about 8,000 people. Trump announced last month he would hold a “major rally” with Cruz at “the biggest stadium in Texas we can...

    A pair of protesters confronted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in an airport over his vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, USA Today reported Wednesday. "You think that putting a sexual assaulter on the court is a victory for women?" one of the women can be heard asking Cruz in a video posted to Twitter. Cruz responds, stating that he believes in due process. The women then press Cruz about his support for Kavanaugh and ask the senator whether he believed the judge committed perjury during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee late last month regarding allegations...

    President Donald Trump is headed to Texas on Oct. 22 to hold a rally at NRG Arena in Houston. Trump had promised to visit the state before Election Day to campaign with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in his re-election bid. Trump's campaign announced Monday evening that the rally will take place at the NRG Arena. The date marks the first day of early voting for the November election, in which Cruz faces a strong challenge from U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso.

    On the campaign trail, Rep. Beto O'Rourke has cast his mother, Melissa O'Rourke, as a lifelong Republican. The Texas Democrat's comments serve a purpose: his Republican mother is the exact sort of voter he'll need to win over in order to defeat GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in the red state and become the first Democrat to win a Senate seat there for the first time since 1988. Tucked in a lengthy BuzzFeed News profile of O'Rourke in August, however, he himself acknowledged that his mother's politics were not as clear-cut as he lets on in his stump speech. "I introduce...
