Ground Game: Texas crosses the line — the Tarrant County line

“As Tarrant County goes, so goes Texas.”

It’s the reddest county in the reddest state. So what happens when U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s Democratic challenger brings his campaign to Fort Worth for a rally in the rain on the city’s historically Hispanic north side?

And what do Tarrant leaders have to say about the backlash of the recent Kavanaugh hearings on GOP turnout here?

It all means plenty of behind-the-scenes action for the McClatchy Ground Game: Texas video series covering the Cruz-Beto O’Rourke race, which culminates on Election Day, Nov. 6.
