Beto O’Rourke outraises Cruz again, taking in $2.4M in latest quarter


WASHINGTON — The Texas Democrat hoping to oust Sen. Ted Cruz is posting his largest campaign fundraising haul yet: $2.4 million.

El Paso Rep. Beto O’Rourke, now touring the state in a blitz of town halls, announced the figures on Sunday during a live-streamed campaign rally in Houston.

It’s the second time O’Rourke has out-raised the Republican favorite in a single fundraising quarter. Following O’Rourke’s news, the Cruz campaign announced it brought in $1.9 million in the final quarter of 2017.

But the sitting senator raised a total of $7.1 million in 2017, according to a spokeswoman for Cruz, and closed the year with a sizable $7.3 million in cash on hand. O’Rourke heads into the election year with $4.6 million in cash.
