DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Senator Ted Cruz is reaching out to a former rival to help him with his re-election bid. 

The Houston Chronicle said Cruz has asked President Trump to come to Texas to campaign for him as the junior Senator's opponent seems to be giving him a run for his money. "I hope to see him in Texas,” Cruz told the Chronicle. “I think we are likely to see the president down in Texas before the election.”

Polls over the last week have shown Cruz with a single-digit lead over Beto O’Rourke, a congressman from El Paso.
