Incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz kicked off his "Cruz to Victory" tour in Central Texas on Tuesday night.

Cruz, who is coming off a rally with President Donald Trump in Houston, spoke to his supporters in Killeen about Texas values and the economy.

"I think really the last two months the voters of Texas have begun focusing on record and Beto O'Rourke's. The people of Texas want low taxes, secure the border and defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights," Cruz said.

"Those are the common sense values that unite Texans and that is what my record has been and that is very much not Beto O'Rourke's record."

Cruz is in a tight race against Democratic U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke. O'Rourke campaigned in San Antonio earlier Tuesday.

Inside a packed room, supporters cheered on Cruz for nearly an hour. They believe Cruz is the only candidate worthy for the Senate.

"We are a huge supporter of our Constitution, our Bill of Rights. All the current achievements Ted Cruz has done and the future. The message I got was hope and that we can still build forward. We have a long way to go, we still have a lot of work to do," a Cruz supporter said.

During the event, Cruz also touted his achievements as a senator and reminded his supporters to vote, either during the early voting period or on Election Day.

The next stop on Cruz's bus tour is set for later this week in Dallas.
