He said there was ‘no point in revisiting the campaign itself.’
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) appears to be backing off a claim he made during his election fight with Beto O’Rourke: That O’Rourke’s campaign helped to fund a migrant caravan heading toward the country’s border.
“Two basic Qs every reporter should ask Beto today: (1) should the ‘caravan’ be allowed to cross illegally into Texas? (Beto refuses to answer.) And (2) did your campaign dollars illegally fund their doing so?” the senator wrote on Nov. 2.
“I’m happy to talk about policy, but there’s no point in revisiting the campaign itself,” he told the news outlet, later adding: “As I said, the election is over.”
The comments from Cruz came after a video was released by James O’Keefe that showed O’Rourke staffers talking about buying “baby wipes, diapers, water, fruit and granola bars” for asylum-seekers who were already in Texas.
Much like Cruz, President Donald Trump also spoke about the migrant caravan quite a bit ahead of the midterms, but has cooled off about it after the election, where Democrats were able to get enough votes to take control of the House of Representatives starting early next year.
