In July,  Gutierrez announced his run against Ted Cruz, one of the GOP’s most unpopular and vulnerable senators. In 2018, Cruz narrowly escaped defeat in the general election, delivering the worst Republican general election performance since 1996. A recent UT Austin poll shows Cruz has a meager 34% favorability rating with Independent voters.
