As a TransGriot public service for all folks inside and outside of Texas who may not have gotten the chance to see the debate between incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R) and Rep. Beto O’ Rourke (D), here’s the video of their first encounter from the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas and hosted bu SMU, the Dallas Morning News and KXAS 5 TV.
The debate was held in front of a raucous crowd of supporters for both candidates .
This is the first of three debates. The next two will take place on September 30 at the University of Houston and October 16 in San Antonio.
The debate, like the one scheduled for UH, will be focused on domestic policy. The San Antonio one will be a mix of domestic and foreign policy
Who won? You can see for yourself.
