    Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz says he raised $3.2 million during the first three months of the year -- less than half his Democratic opponent's fundraising haul -- and now maintains only a small lead in the overall money race.

    Cruz's campaign announced Friday that it now has a war chest of nearly $8.2 million.

    U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, a onetime punk rocker who's giving up his seat in El Paso to challenge Cruz, reported collecting $6.7 million in donations through March. His campaign says it now has more than $8 million in cash on hand.

    O'Rourke has raised more than Cruz in past quarters, despite shunning money from outside political groups. Cruz has no such prohibition.

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.
