Republican candidate for Texas Senator fiercely criticised his Democratic opponent Beto O'Rourke at a campaign rally in Houston on Monday. Cruz accused O'Rourke of demonising law enforcement officials, of being anti-Israel, and lambasted him for supporting the Iran nuclear deal. «The Ayatollah Khamenei chants 'Death to America and death to Israel,' and let me give you a very, very simple... Еще principle: don't give billions of dollars to people who want to kill you,» Cruz said to a cheering crowd of supporters. Incumbent Cruz is running against O'Rourke in what is widely predicted to be a tight race. Democrats are targeting the seat in the battle for control of the US congress.
