President Donald Trump’s longtime nemesis Rosie O’Donnell is all in against one of the president’s former campaign rivals – Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
The comedian and actress, a flaming liberal, threw her support behind Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, who is challenging the incumbent Sen. Cruz in 2018.

A “maxed out” donation by individuals to candidates for the United States Senate is $2,700, per Federal Election Commission rules.
O’Rourke’s bid is a long shot in bright red Texas, so Sen. Cruz is taking things in stride.

Senator Cruz is currently sitting on a massive $4.8 million war chest for his reelection campaign, according to FEC documents. So far, O’Rourke has about half a million dollars on hand, so he’ll need quite a few more liberal celebrities to max out their donations to catch up.
