Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just landed a brutal dunk on Ted Cruz over his attacks on Beto

- 16.40

As Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke’s poll numbers continue to rise, threatening Ted Cruz’s Senate seat, the GOP is getting nervous. They’ve trotted out a string of petty attacks on O’Rourke, even resorting to mocking him for being in a band when he was younger.

This pathetic line of attack shows that Republicans have no substantive critique of O’Rourke’s platform. He’s an incredibly strong candidate and, by all indications, will do a great job for the people of Texas. The GOP is scared and for good reason.

Now, rising Democratic star and New York congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has waded into the Texas race, leveling some well-deserved mockery at the GOP’s tactics.

“Why is the GOP so corny?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, mirroring the thoughts of just about everyone who saw the original Republican tweet.

She went on to point out things that shouldn’t even need to be pointed out: being in a band doesn’t discount one from running for public office. Nor does being a bartender (as Ocasio-Cortez was), being a teacher, or a stay at home parent. Choice of clothing doesn’t matter either.

The only thing that you need to run for office is a desire to create better lives for your fellow Americans. We need public servants who will push for better healthcare, education, housing, and justice. These are all things Beto O’Rourke will fight for, and they’re all things Ted Cruz has repeatedly obstructed.

The best choice for Texas is clear. Click here to donate to O’Rourke’s campaign.
