Beyoncé Posts Last-Minute Support Of Beto O'Rourke On Instagram

  • San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said he would support Beto O’Rourke in his Senate race against Ted Cruz

Cruz did show the humility to pay tribute to O'Rourke for his campaign - as the boos rang out among his supporters - and what he had done to mobilise and energise young voters.

Triumph also spends some time in the segment harassing supporters of both candidates, but really rises to the occasion in his face-to-face encounters with O'Rourke and Cruz, both of whom seem remarkably relaxed about interacting with a famously antangonistic canine puppet. "This election was a battle of ideas".

The two candidates squared off in their hard-fought race that could help determine control of the Senate. Both say strong early voting statewide - almost 4.9 million Texans casting ballots before today - is a good sign for them.

The demographics of Texas, like numerous western states, are shifting.

As major news outlets began calling the race for Cruz around 10:30 p.m., the incumbent senator was leading in the low single digits - a much closer margin than most polls had shown in recent months. The last time a Democrat won a Senate seat here was in 1988. O'Rourke supported various progressive initiatives, including the implementation of universal health care and looser immigration laws.

It wasn't Beto O'Rourke's night.

"You told me this is very emotional for you", Haake noted.

Cruz scoffed at the notion that O'Rourke could beat him.

Still, the race laid bare that many Texas conservatives never forgave Cruz for clashing with Trump at the end of the 2016 presidential primary and for refusing to endorse him at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland - a move many saw as putting personal ambitions over party.

Robert Smigel, as Triumph, has fun roasting the lefties who turn out for O'Rourke, but he saves his best material for dragging Cruz within an inch of his life. A victory for O'Rourke would be a true upset in what was always a long-shot bid to oust Cruz from the U.S. Senate.
