Texas GOP Tries To Shame Beto O’Rourke For 90s DUI Arrest, Forgets The Many Arrests Of Texas Republicans

The Hill reports:

The Texas Republican Party invoked a decades-old mug shot from a previous Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D-Texas) arrest as part of a series of jabs at the congressman for declining to debate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

The tweet included O’Rourke’s mugshot from an arrest. The photo included a message that reads: “Sorry, Can’t debate. Had a little too much to drink.” The mugshot appeared to reference a DWI arrest O’Rourke experienced more than 20 years ago. It was one of several photos posted on the Texas GOP account mocking O’Rourke over his decision not to debate Cruz on Friday in Dallas.

The tweets from the Texas GOP Party come as polls show a tightening race between O’Rourke and Cruz, with the two statistically dead even in an Emerson College poll out this week.
