The texts in question were not sent by the campaign, but sent by an impostor Video ››› September 7, 2018 4:45 PM EDT ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF 325 Print Email From the September 7 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show: SEAN HANNITY (HOST): A text message was sent out by a Democratic Senate hopeful down, where is this, in Texas. With this guy, what's his name -- O'Rourke, everybody loves so much, Beto O'Rourke is the guy's name. Locked in a tight race, they say, with Ted Cruz -- I think Ted Cruz will win. Ted Cruz has been an enormous help with this country, a tremendous advocate for constitutional conservatism. And look, I know that he got in a big fight with Trump, but he's been one of the president's most reliable senators. ... Anyway, O'Rourke's race, it goes on to say, "we are in search of volunteers to help transport undocumented immigrants to polling booths." They're doing that in Texas. I'm not making it up, it was in The Austin American Statesman -- don't believe me.
