National Journal: End Citizens United Endorses O’Rourke

By: Kimberley Railey

End Cit­izens United backed Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D-16) chal­lenge to Sen. Ted Cruz (R).

“Our de­cision to en­dorse Beto was an easy one,” said Tiffany Muller, the PAC’s pres­id­ent and ex­ec­ut­ive dir­ect­or, in a writ­ten state­ment. “He stands as a pro­gress­ive cham­pi­on and the fu­ture of our party with a de­term­ined fo­cus to give the people a voice in our demo­cracy. He’s run­ning against the worst of Wash­ing­ton in Sen­at­or Ted Cruz who has sold out Tex­ans for the spe­cial in­terests at every op­por­tun­ity.” (Dal­las Morn­ing News)

TALK­ING IT OUT. Pres­id­ent Trump called Sen. Ted Cruz (R), who came out against the Sen­ate health care bill, to speak about the le­gis­la­tion. “The phone con­ver­sa­tion between Cruz and Trump was de­scribed by the White House of­fi­cials and Trump ally as sub­stant­ive and en­cour­aging. It was about hear­ing each side out and get­ting a bet­ter sense of where things stand, they said.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)
