Ted Cruz holds back the Democrat Texas tide - for now

Ted Cruz holds back the Democrat Texas tide - for now

The Texas senate race between Democrat Beto O'Rourke and incumbent sea cucumber Ted Cruz is one of the most anticipated face-offs in the midterm elections.

Ted Cruz has narrowly won reelection against an historic challenge by Beto O'Rourke, who ran a staunchly progressive campaign that refused to appeal to moderates and Republicans in deep-red Texas.

Next up was Harlingen, Texas, where Triumph announced, "I'm here at the Ted Cruz rally, or a Duck Dynasty cosplay convention, not 100 percent sure".

The Democratic congressman from El Paso raised a whopping $69 million and growing - the most of any US Senate candidate in history. In contrast, Cruz raised $40 million. He describes Cruz's desire to repeal Obamacare as something that could potentially kill "way more people than the Zodiac", emphasizing the "way more" again and again so many times that the Cruz supporters chuckling at his joke (but still supporting Cruz) have to actually think about it.

Still, the race should never have been this close in the Lone Star State.

Cruz was backed by his 2016 presidential opponent President Donald Trump and other prominent Republicans. Trump traveled to Houston in late October on Cruz's behalf.

"The Trump administration has "done quite enough to intimidate voters without staging military rehearsals on the day our nation exercises our most important democratic obligation", Burke said". "It's why the nickname stuck - because it's true".

What pundits are saying: Nate Silver reports that Cruz's lead narrowed, noting that one of the polls they cite is a Democrat polling outlet, but FiveThirtyEight is still marking the seat as "Likely R", with a 7-in-9 chance Cruz wins (78.8%).

"Have you ever actually heard his music?"

Then, finally, after years of waiting, Triumph finally came face-to-face with Cruz at a Republican rally. "I support spaying and neutering", Triumph shot back. "Just like Trump did to you".
