During a rally in Georgetown, Texas, on Tuesday, for Republican Senator Ted Cruz, a supporter shouted “Lock him up” in reference to Cruz’s opponent, Beto O’Rourke. Cruz replied that O’Rourke could share a cell with former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“Well, you know, there’s a double-occupancy cell with Hillary Clinton,” Cruz said. “Ya’ll are gonna get me in trouble with that,” he added. The “lock her up” chant referenced at the rally Tuesday could be heard often during President Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016, in reference to Clinton.
