The Huffington Post reports:
On Sunday night, former Cruz campaign strategist Rick Tyler said his old boss may be in trouble deep in the heart of Texas as O’Rourke may pull off an upset win.
“It’s possible,” Tyler said on MSNBC. Although Texas is such a red state, that doesn’t seem to be helping Cruz right now.
“It should be a 10- or 15-point race. It’s not. It’s a zero to 4-point race,” Tyler said. “And Beto O’Rourke is running an interesting campaign and he’s grabbed national attention. So it’s a race.”
Cruz, you may recall, forced Tyler out at the height of the 2016 campaign for promoting a false report that Marco Rubio had ridiculed the bible.
@rickwtyler providing political punditry is like me giving marathon running advice. Ain’t worth a bucket of spit.
Also chyron should say former “fired” Cruz comms director. He was former before the race was over. https://t.co/eDcnNkLM7s

Instead of watching TV, you might want to work on your talking points for how you managed an easy GOP Senate win into a real race. Are you working in both camps . . . again? @tedcruz https://t.co/WZDwOeaQK0
