Political Experience: US Senator, 2013-Present

- Top 5 lifetime-ranked economic conservative in the US Senate.
Senator Ted Cruz (CFG Lifetime Rating: 93%) has been a staunch champion of economic conservatism during his first term in the Senate. Though Texas is generally a strong conservative state, it only went for Donald Trump by 9 points in 2016, a weaker margin than that obtained by Mitt Romney or John McCain in the previous two Presidential elections. In addition, polling shows a potentially close race between Cruz and his liberal Democrat challenger, Rep. Beto O’Rouke (CFG Lifetime Rating: 8%), who has also been a very aggressive fundraiser. Cruz will need outside help in order to hold his Senate seat in a competitive midterm election environment.
