The Hill reports:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Monday described Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) as “cult-like” in the way that he’s garnered attention in his bid to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
“He’s been a cult-like, very popular figure the way that he’s run the campaign, but you don’t vote on cult, you don’t vote on personality when you get to the U.S. Senate. You vote on the issues,” Abbott said on “Fox & Friends.”
Abbott was critical of O’Rourke’s liberal policy views, saying Texas voters won’t approve of “George Soros policies” such as higher taxes. “Texans are hostile to any candidate who’s talking about raising their taxes,” he said. “Texans are hostile to anybody talking about big government programs run their lives.”
