Those individuals have not made their way to Texas to stump for O’Rourke, who is aiming to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in the traditionally Republican state. The race has attracted national attention, though O’Rourke has consistently trailed in polls by single digits over the last several weeks.
The national GOP has mobilized to aid Cruz in his campaign, with President Trump hosting a campaign rally for the senator last month in Houston.
O’Rourke chalked up the national interest to his campaign’s decision to turn down political action committee and special interest money, and to travel to all 254 Texas counties before the election.
“At this really divided moment, everybody, knowing that they’re invited to be part of this,” O’Rourke said, explaining the national fascination with the race. “And the fact that some of your stereotypes about what you think Texas is, aren’t necessarily true.”
The RealClearPolitics polling index shows Cruz with a 6.5 percentage point lead in the race.
In Texas, more than 4.5 million people cast in-person ballots in this year’s early voting period, and more than 360,000 people have cast mail-in ballots in 30 counties alone.
