News 10 is reporting that on Friday hundreds of Central Texas locals packed into the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco for a Ted Cruz campaign rally.

Cruz was in Waco Friday to help rally support for his campaign to keep his Senate seat in the upcoming midterm elections. Cruz has met stiff competition from his Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke.

Cruz spoke to a standing room only crowd on his policy differences between himself and O'Rourke. The differences between the two candidates range from taxes and the Second Amendment to immigration and healthcare.

"The last couple of months have been critically important in this race because they have drawn a clear and stark contrast. There is no race in this country, with a starker contrast than this US Senate race, in the state of Texas," Cruz said.

Cruz would also go on to ask for donations to his campaign as O'Rourke has raised more than Cruz at a rate of almost 3 to 1.

The Incumbent Texas Senator should get a big boost in support as President Donald Trump plans to hold a rally for Cruz today in Houston.
