The spokesperson for the unsuccessful presidential campaign of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) admitted on MSNBC on Saturday that his former boss could lose reelection in Texas.
Sen. Cruz is being challenged by Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), whose campaign has energized supporters across the country, raising over $9 million in the month of August.
The two debated on Friday night, with Cruz defending a Dallas police officer who killed an unarmed black man in his own home.
“Do you think that Beto O’Rourke has a chance for this?” MSNBC’s Alex Witt asked.
“Yes,” Tyler replied, without hesitation.
“He has a shot of winning this race,” Tyler acknowledged. “The race has been trending towards Beto since its inception.”
“I’ve said for weeks it could be won by Beto,” he added.

Fox News commentator Sean Hannity appears to be knee-deep in Trump’s Ukraine scandal — despite his denials
Fox News host Sean Hannity raved that he never spoke with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about ousted Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch after a third witness confirmed the alleged call to impeachment investigators.
David Hale, the undersecretary of State for political affairs, testified under oath that Yovanovitch was the victim of a baseless smear campaign led by Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney of President Donald Trump, which led to her ouster. According to a transcript of the closed-door deposition released Monday, the smears originally stemmed from the conservative columnist John Solomon, who wrote in The Hill that former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko had claimed that Yovanovitch gave him a “do not prosecute list.” Lutsenko later retracted that claim.
