Beto O'Rourke Vs. Ted Cruz in close U.S. Senate race

According to the latest polls, the U.S. Senate race between Beto O'Rourke and Ted Cruz is officially a toss-up with less than five days until election day.

The most recent poll -- the Emerson College poll shows the race tightening.

O'Rourke is trailing incumbent Cruz by only three percentage points.

O'Rourke has 47 percent and Cruz has 50 percent.

In the past couple of weeks, KFDM's Angel San Juan interviewed both Cruz and O'Rourke.

Both Cruz and O'Rourke are in their mid-forties and are family men with children.

However, their political philosophies are as distant as the cities they grew up in.

Cruz grew up in Houston, and O'Rourke grew up in West Texas.

However in the final stretch of their campaigns, they were both reaching out beyond their base.

Also, Cruz came in second to President Trump in the 2016 Republican Presidential primary.

And now there's talk of recruiting O'Rourke to seek the presidency in 2020.

KFDM News asked O'Rourke if he plans to run for president in 2020, and he said no, he's not running for president.
