Award-Winning Texas Politics Reporter: Republicans 'Think Ted Cruz Is Under Water'

Last night Scott Braddock, award-winning reporter, who covers Texas politics tweeted this exciting nugget of information about the Texas Senate race.

Someone tweeted back to Braddock about his information and questioned it.

Braddock responds that it’s just not early-voting in Texas that Republicans are concerned about. They think Cruz is underwater in both. To me—this points to Republicans being extremely concerned with their internal polling of this race.

No predictions but if I said something, it is true. https://t.co/ZnYEOJWi9Z

Braddock isn’t predicting the outcome, but this information certainly matches the incredible enthusiasm we are seeing for Beto O’Rourke in Texas. Go Beto!

Personally—I have a great feeling about this race. It’s still going to be tough, because it’s Texas and no one thought this was even possible, but now it’s looking increasingly possible Beto can pull off the upset. If you’re in Texas, don’t take anything for granted. VOTE! BETO!—on November 6!
