Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Ted Cruz made a stop in Abilene on Wednesday to talk to supporters at the newly re-opened Enriques restaurant.
Cruz is in the upcoming run-off against David Dewhurst who's been the Lt. Governor since 2003. Voters will head to the polls July 31st.
Cruz is upset about, what he calls negative campaigning. The gloves are certainly off between Cruz and Dewhurst, especially in the most recent campaign add.
Cruz told us that these ads are "false hoods" and said his campaign ads from day one have been about the issues that need to be faced in Washington.
"You know, it is unfortunate that my opponent has chosen to put over $16 million of his own personal fortune into flooding the airwaves over false nasty attack adds," Cruz said.
He also said his advantage over his opponent is that he's not a career politician.
If Cruz becomes the U.S. Senator, he wants the federal government to stop deficit spending.
KTXS will have more on Thursday. You will also hear from his opponent Lt. Governor David Dewhurst.
