On Friday, Senator Ted Cruz warned the Texas GOP that “the left is going to show up” in the upcoming elections in 2018.

He spoke about how there is an “incredible volatility in politics right now,” he added, “Let me tell you right now: The left is going to show up.”

Cruz added, “They will crawl over broken glass in November to vote.”

He has a valid point too. They’re desperate at this point and they are going to be hitting back with all they have. They hate Trump more than anything.

The Hill reports: 

Cruz also cited the Democrats’ behavior during President Trump‘s first State of the Union address last month, saying their refusal to applaud and stand “underscores the political risk in November.”

Cruz’s likely Democratic opponent in November, Rep. Beto O’Rourkeoutraised Cruz in the final quarter of 2017.

A poll last month by a left-leaning firm showed Cruz leading O’Rourke by single digits.

Cruz said Saturday that he is “absolutely” ready for his reelection campaign, according to the Texas Tribune.

“It’s true my Democratic opponent is raising a lot of money,” Cruz continued, “We’re not going to take it for granted. That’s a manifestation of the energy on the extreme left.”

Democrats have an uphill battle in Texas’s Senate race, but they’ve been feeling more bullish on elections in redder states given recent upsets in GOP strongholds. Still, no Democrat has won a Senate election in Texas since 1988.
