LeBron James just shared a viral video from Ted Cruz’s Democratic opponent on Twitter

The sniveling Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) was thoroughly humiliated and defeated by Donald Trump during the 2016 Republican primary, forcing him to slink back to the Senate where he has bent over backward to facilitate Trump’s agenda like a beaten dog. Now, it looks like he might lose even that last scrap of power.

Cruz’s Democratic opponent Beto O’Rourke is rapidly catching up in the polls and stands poised to seize the Senate seat come November. And, if watching Cruz get booted from the halls of power weren’t enough reason to root for O’Rourke, he’s proven himself to be a strong, intelligent, and moral candidate, refusing to cave to the traditional logic that a Democrat running in Texas has to lean right to gain ground.

Now, O’Rourke has been endorsed by one of Trump’s most outspoken critics. NBA living legend LeBron James tweeted out his support of the Democratic candidate, including a link to a viral video in which O’Rourke defended NFL players who choose to kneel during the national anthem in protest of police brutality.

Trump has made much political hay of the NFL protests, delighting in the opportunity to lecture and insult black athletes and incite his racist base. O’Rourke is one of the few politicians with the courage to take a strong stance in defense of the players, and LeBron must be commended for shining a light on this fact.

This November offers the people of Texas to vote for someone who will actually fight for their best interests instead of the interests of lobbyists and crooks. Ted Cruz must go. Click here to donate to Beto O’Rourke’s campaign.
