Paul Sadler is a former Texas House member, a position he held from 1991-2003. While in the legislature, he served as chairman of the House Public Education Committee.
The Democrat became executive director of the Wind Coalition in 2008. He beat retired educator Grady Yarbrough in this summerâ€™s primary runoff the U.S. Senate nomination.
He now faces former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz – a Republican favorite. Sadler has labeled Cruz as â€śextremistâ€ť and â€ścowardly,â€ť even questioning his ties to Texas. So far, the Cruz campaign has focused its efforts away from those attacks.
Tuesday’s debate will stream online at dallasnews.com at 7 p.m. A second debate is set for Oct. 19.
