Senate race turns ugly as campaign signs are vandalized in west Houston

Over 50,000 people turned out for Beto O'Rourke's campaign rally in Austin, Texas, on Saturday, making it the largest political rally for a single candidate since the 2016 presidential election.
The Texas Senate candidate enlisted Willie Nelson for the event, enraging conservative Willie Nelson fans who have apparently never looked into their fave's politics. We suppose they're also not pleased with Nelson's new song, "Vote 'Em Out," which was written specifically for the midterm elections.
Donald Trump, whose best-attended campaign rally attracted around 15,000 people, has promised to hold a "major rally" for O'Rourke's opponent, chunky soup aficionado Ted Cruz.
