O'Rourke's campaign has shunned donations from outside groups but still racked up impressive fundraising totals, repeatedly outraising Cruz.
Cruz announced Thursday he has more $10 million cash on hand and a more than $23 million raised for his 2018 re-election campaign. He raised more than $4 million in the second quarter.
An ex-punk rocker from El Paso, O'Rourke's campaign has garnered national attention. But he remains an underdog against Cruz.
