O'Rourke gets CNN town hall in bitter Texas Senate race

Morgan Ortagus said that O'Rourke, an El Paso lawmaker seeking to unseat Sen.

However, O'Rourke has pledged to serve a six-year term if elected in 2018, meaning he wouldn't run against Trump in 2020. After all, Cruz has aligned himself with a president who in 2016 insulted his wife and baselessly accused his father of killing JFK, and in this election, has tried to win votes using O'Rourke's denouncement of the Dallas police officer who killed 26-year-old Botham Jean in his own home.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz became the latest Republican to be accosted in public over their vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court this week; telling his heckler "God bless you, ma'am" at a crowded airport.

He said he was a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and Texas gun culture but added, "We lose 30,000 of our fellow Americans every year to gun violence". "The people of Texas should be able to lead the way on this conversation".

The event came two days after O'Rourke scrapped his usual optimistic, bipartisan message and sharply criticized Cruz during a debate in San Antonio, even evoking a nickname that Trump bestowed on the senator when they were bitter rivals during the 2016 GOP primary, "Lyin' Ted". Cruz is never mentioned once. "So that's what we're focused on", O'Rourke said.

When CNN's Dana Bash asked him whether he would rule out ever running for president, O'Rourke hedged.
