In a new 27-second advertisement, Cruz argues that parents should leave their children at home when O'Rourke is around. It shows O’Rourke using the word "f---" on five different occasions.

“How f---ed up is that?” O’Rourke says in one clip.

The advertisement’s narrator says during the video that O’Rourke “wants to be a senator, so he’s showing up across Texas sharing his wit and character.”

“If Beto shows up in your town, maybe keep the kids at home,” the narrator adds.

Recent polls have shown a tightening race between O’Rourke and Cruz ahead of November’s midterm elections. A poll published last week by Emerson College showed Cruz with just a 1-point lead over O’Rourke, well within the margin of error.

The Cook Political Report shifted the race from its “likely Republican” column to “lean Republican” last month.
