Daily Digit: Activists raise thousands for anti-Ted Cruz billboard

Daily Digit: Activists raise thousands for anti-Ted Cruz billboardDaily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we’re looking at the senate race in Texas. Nearly $10,000 was raised to put one of Donald Trump’s anti-Ted Cruz tweets on a billboard. A GoFundMe page organized by political group USA Latinx surpassed its $6,000 goal in less than 24 hours with help from Parkland survivor David Hogg and Claude Taylor, chairman of Mad Dog PAC. The group’s goal is to remind Texans of how Trump really feels about Cruz even though the president will stomp for the senator at a rally in October. A recent Emerson College poll shows a tight race between Cruz and his Democratic opponent, Beto O’Rourke. However, a Democratic senator has not been elected in Texas since 1988.
