Ted Cruz trails Senate challenger Beto O’Rourke in six-week fundraising haul. By a lot.

WASHINGTON — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s fundraising lagged far behind his top Democratic challenger during the first six weeks of 2018, a new federal campaign filing shows.

Cruz raised $800,000 through Feb. 14. That’s well below El Paso Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s $2.3 million haul, according to the most recent federal report.

The Republican also spent more than he raised — nearly $1.2 million, while O’Rourke burned through roughly $2 million in his bid to unseat the powerhouse incumbent.

Both face nominal competition in March 6 primaries and most nonpartisan handicappers view Cruz as the heavy favorite in his Senate re-election bid this fall.
