DALLAS (AP) — Democrat Paul Sadler and Republican Ted Cruz, his heavily favored rival, are largely keeping things calm during the final debate of Texas' U.S. Senate race.
Cruz is a former state solicitor general and tea party favorite who is vying with Sadler, a former state representative, in the Nov. 6 election to succeed retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.
Friday's debate was mostly civil with neither side interrupting or clashing much verbally. It wasn't nearly as heated as the Oct. 1 debate when Sadler called Cruz a "troll."
Cruz has raised 10 times as much money as his opponent and only agreed to two debates, saying more would give Sadler free air time.
