As momentum builds in the battle for the Texas Senate seat, a significant amount of money is being funneled to help both candidates in what is quickly becoming one of the country’s most expensive races.
A new poll released Tuesday by Crosswind Media and Public Relations shows Republican incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz leading his Democratic challenger, Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s, 47 to 44 percent.
Branham said campaign dollars, though sizable, will only go so far.
The cost over the race has ballooned to nearly $48 million, making it the second most expensive Senate race in the country, according to bipartisan non-profit, Center for Responsive Politics.
But, all the money going into this race, it would seem that you’re spending a lot of money on one thing and leaving a lot of other things vulnerable,” Branham said.
