Ted Cruz’s first general election campaign ad is out against Dem challenger Robert “Beto” O’Rourke and it’s a musical number that takes issue with the fact that O’Rourke is going by “Beto” and not Robert, accusing him of changing it to fit in:

Exit question: How soon until Beto plays the Canada card?

It worked for Trump…
