Hurd, who broke away from Trump on issues such as the border wall and did not approve it in 2016, is a friend of former Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas). O & # 39; Rourke still plans to run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.

"My plan is to vote for the Republican candidate, yes," Hurd told CNN's "State of the Union."

"It's very clear," Hurd replied.

O & # 39; Rourke and Hurd made a bipartisan road trip heavily promoted on social networks in 2018.

Despite his own popularity in the state, O 'Rourke has not endorsed Hurd's Democratic challenger mid-way into a tight race in the 23rd district of Texas.
