There is one day left until voters cast their ballots for the 2018 midterm election and one of the anticipated races in the nation is the Texas U.S. Senate race between incumbent Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O’Rourke.

Cruz will spend the last day before the election speaking to voters in Pearland, Cypress, Atascocita and Stafford for multiple #CruzToVictory bus stops.

O’Rourke will begin his day in Houston before traveling to Dallas and El Paso for speaking events.

Both candidates have made multiple visits to the Coastal Bend while campaigning.

Cruz made his latest stop in Corpus Christi on Saturday to rally voters on his #CruzToVictory bus tour. The incumbent said this election comes down to three big issues: jobs, freedom and security.

“My number one priority in the Senate is and has always been jobs, jobs, jobs, because that is the number one priority of the people of Texas,” Cruz told the crowd.

In Robstown on Thursday, O’ Rourke said education, immigration and healthcare are among the top issues he promises to tackle if elected.

“Education, immigration, making sure that we lead on healthcare, the ability to find a job that pays a living wage. Those are the things I hear Texans talking about,” O’Rourke said.

Polls have showed Cruz ahead of O’Rourke during much of the campaign. The latest Quinnipiac poll has Cruz leading O’Rourke 51-46.
