U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz launched a new advertisement that calls into question a conflict U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke had in 2007 concerning Segundo Barrio.
The ad asks, “If Beto O’Rourke’s own El Paso constituents couldn’t trust him then, why would the rest of Texas trust him now?”
It shows clips of the El Paso Congressman during his City Council days as resident pepper him with questions about eminent domain in Segundo Barrio.
It also brings up the question of a conflict of interest when it came to projects that involved his father-in-law Bill Sanders.
KTSM spoke with Susie Byrd, who was on City Council with O’Rourke during those meetings. She said Cruz is trying to “distort” O’Rourke’s stance on the subject.
