Cruz Slams O’Rourke for Using a Nickname

Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) re-election campaign released a 60-second radio ad that was a country music jingle prodding O’Rourke for going by “Beto” rather than “Robert,” CNN reports.

Said the song: “Liberal Robert wanted to fit in, so he changed his name to Beto and hid it with a grin.”

O’Rourke responded saying he’s gone by “Beto” since he was born.

Of course, Cruz’s real name is Rafael Edward Cruz and he goes by the nickname “Ted.”
