Trump and Cruz memorably exchanged some sharp - and personal - barbs during their 2016 White House battle. "Very late into the campaign and I said don't worry about it, it's only a question of time, and then it became very nasty and then it was over and, when it was over, we got along great".
"He's not Lyin' Ted anymore".
During the 2016 Republican primary, Trump assailed Cruz as a liar and "dishonest politician", insulted his wife's appearance and promoted unsubstantiated claims that Cruz's father had links to President John F. Kennedy's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. "What I told the president the week after the election, I said, "Mr. President, I want to do everything humanly possible to roll up my sleeves and lead the fight in the Senate to deliver on our promises'". "It all worked out, very nicely". "Once he was elected president, we had an opportunity, an opportunity to do historic good for the country, for the state of Texas", Cruz said during a campaign stop in his hometown of Houston on Sunday.
Sen. Cruz's challenger, Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke, is also in Houston visiting polling stations. "I think the kind of bitterness and name-calling and partisanship that has, unfortunately, defined so much of the national conversation".More news: NY police remove nearly 3,000 body cameras after one explodes

"That was a real concern because he had just endorsed two weeks earlier", said former Trump campaign aide Andy Surabian. Abbott now mentioning all of the California money that's funding O'Rourke and says O'Rourke is "hostile to Texas values". "This is a decision that will be decided by and for the people of Texas, and I feel really confident in that". "When I first heard about him, I thought he might be a little special".
"I don't know it makes sense to respond", O'Rourke replied.
"I like him a lot".
