Texas Tribune Washington D.C. Bureau Chief Abby Livingston joined this week's "Tweet the Press" for a deep dive into the top political questions in the Lonestar State.

The clash between Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke has drawn national attention thanks to the prolific fundraising numbers and recent polls that show O'Rourke the first Democrat with a fighting chance for a Senate seat in a while.

Check out a sampling of the conversation below and click here for the full discussion. And you can catch more analysis from Livingston here, when she joined Chuck Todd for the MTP Daily Meet the Midterms swing through Dallas.
