Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) ended a 34-day road trip around Texas at a homecoming event in El Paso on Sunday. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), the man he is trying to unseat, released a video on Monday with a "lighthearted reminder" that O'Rourke used the F-word at some of his 100 campaign events across the state.
For those of you not keeping score, historian Kevin M. Kruse recaps Cruz's case against O'Rourke:
Ted Cruz and the Texas GOP have now warned voters that @BetoORourke likes to (1) eat Whataburgers, (2) drink beer, (3) play in a rock band and (4) occasionally curse.
I’m sure this will all repel Texans, who are famously dainty. https://t.co/4kmuPIYrVb

O'Rourke, who trails Cruz by about 4 percentage points in the RealClearPolitics polling average, released a Labor Day video about labor. It is safe for work, and you can watch below. Peter Weber
