Ted Cruz On Track To Win Re-Election In 2018

Gabriella Hoffman, The Resurgent

New fundraising numbers released by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)’s re-election efforts show the Texas senator, running for his second term, is well-positioned to cruise to victory in November 2018. His current war chest amounts to over $5 million, making him well-positioned to withstand a challenge from his party and in the general race.

Here’s more from POLITICO:

The Texas Republican raised about $1.738 million in the first three months of this year across his Senate reelection campaign, his political action committee and the Ted Cruz Victory Committee. He now has $5.2 million across those three committees, and $4.8 million of that is in his Senate reelection account.

Cruz has incumbency advantage, which makes him fairly immune to political loss. Although there are continual whispers that Republicans nationally and in Texas want him gone. (That ain’t going to happen.) His likely Democrat challenger is Congressman Beto O’Rouke (D-TX) of El Paso, a former punk rocker with a few arrests under his belt. Nevertheless, the former 2016 presidential candidate and former Texas solicitor general will likely come away triumphing the November after next.

In Search Of History

Cambodia's Deadly Experiment

In the 1950s, students started gathering in Paris. They were reading Karl Marx. They were forming book clubs. They were trying to come up with a better version of society. One that moved away from the division of labor. One that moved away from the capitalism in the big cities that they so despised. ... One of those students would change his name to Pol Pot. He and his colleagues formed a new political party, a takeover in Cambodia. They called themsevles the Khmer Rouge. ... Under Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, one out of four people in that country died in less than four years.
