Gary Miller

Rep. Beto O’Rourke, the El Paso Democrat challenging incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz had the single largest fundraising quarter in a Senate race ever, his campaign said Friday.

O’Rourke raised more than $ 38 million in the third quarter of 2018 from 802,836 individual contributions. Not only did the haul break previous records for Senate candidates, it also outpaced previous quarters where he raised more money than Cruz.

“The people of Texas in all 254 counties are proving that when we reject PACs and come together not as Republicans or Democrats but as Texans and Americans, there’s no stopping us,” O’Rourke said in a statement. “This is a historic campaign of people: all people, all the time, everywhere, every single day — that’s how we’re going to win this election and do something incredible for Texas and our country at this critical moment.”

“I wanted to create an environment for the clothing to sit in,” said designer and cofounder Christina Viviani. “It’s the intimate experience I felt was missing in retail.”
Viviani’s bras, panties, bustiers and bodysuits are manufactured in Italy at a family-owned factory operated by the third generation. The matte Italian fabric of the Sonata bralette is edged in a custom geometric lace woven by a third-generation lacemaker in Como, Italy.
