Cruz Beats Beto in Texas Nail-Biter

Cruz Beats Beto in Texas Nail-Biter

Mr Cruz's actions, especially the government shutdown, alienated many of his Republican colleagues in the Senate.

MSNBC's Brian Williams later apologised for what was said, telling viewers that "we have no control over what it's in the concession speeches of various campaigns". He was cool enough to get a last-minute endorsement from Beyonce, a Houston native.

In a series of three posts, the Texas native struck playful poses while sporting a "Beto for Senate" hat.

During his bid for the Senate, O'Rourke tapped Facebook to build an email list of millions of supporters, and used the social media platform to raise money. Triumph asks someone in the crowd at a Cruz rally.

Polling showed Cruz - vying for his second term - consistently ahead, but by single digits.

In the end, all of that celebrity backing didn't translate to victory in a reliably red state like Texas.

The tightness of the race meant Cruz had to lean on his former political rival - President Trump, whom he competed against in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

There were as many Trump hats as Cruz ones in the hotel ballroom. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Ted Cruz in Texas, a state that no Democrat has carried for president in 42 years. "It's why the nickname stuck - because it's true". O'Rourke has garnered nearly unprecedented support in the red state, and polling in recent months has shown O'Rourke and Cruz virtually neck-and-neck.

"Have you ever actually heard his music?"

The last time a Democrat won a statewide election in Texas was 1994.

Meanwhile, a comedy bit put the candidates in the national spotlight yet again.

First, Triumph visited the O'Rourke camp, where he mocked the candidate's attempt at punk music in the 1990s.

Cruz then tried to make a joke about the Democrats taking Triumph to get fixed. "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you!" "Just like Trump did to you".
