For U.S. Senate: Electing Beto O'Rourke is good business
By the Star-Telegram Editorial Board
October 26, 2018 06:22 PM
O'Rourke's "new way" campaign against politics-as-usual has drawn attention, and also money. But much of what he says, particularly about immigration and healthcare, sounds like what Texas business conservatives used to say before the emergence of New York Republican Donald Trump.
U.S. Sen. John Cornyn says we shouldn't deport Dreamer students over their parents' mistakes. Former Gov. Rick Perry, now energy secretary, has said a border wall "doesn't make sense." President George W. Bush endorsed a path to legal status for those who came illegally but worked peacefully, supported the economy and showed good character. These are the same Texas values that O'Rourke now defends.
This endorsement did not come without some disagreement. Cruz is closer to Texas' and Tarrant County's views on issues related to faith and values, and also on energy policy. But Cruz was elected with no experience in any council or legislature, and it shows. His intransigence prevents him from currying support or negotiating deals to help Texas.
This Editorial Board has recommended conservative Republicans such as George W. Bush and Mitt Romney for president, along with U.S. Sens. John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison.But Cruz does not measure up. This office needs a reset.
