  • Hear Me Out Beto O'Rourke Is Going to Win Texas

Turnout is always a big factor, and in this Texas race even more so, as Democrats will need to overcome historically low voter turnout in the state in order to push a win over the incumbent Cruz.

Said Cruz: "It wasn't the Republicans, it was the Democrats that took you into the vet to get fixed". Ted Cruz in Texas, a state that no Democrat has carried for president in 42 years.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert sent the only political correspondent courageous enough to ask the tough questions down to Texas to cover the toss-up Senate race between incumbent GOP sweaty narc Ted Cruz against Democratic challenger and The Clash fan Beto O'Rourke.

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.

Texas polls are set to close at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. EST, per Politico.

Good luck voting out there today, and happy election day to everyone but Ted Cruz!

Before Triumph interviewed Cruz, he spoke to his opponent, O'Rourke.

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%).

The U.S. Senate race in Texas was one of the most closely watched and expensive races in the country.

The Lone Star State has been reliably red for decades.

"Ted, is it true you will defend the constitution at all costs, except for when Donald Trump calls it ugly on Twitter?".

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.

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

Despite the jokes at his expense, Cruz did play along with the bit, even telling a police officer who appeared to be holding Triumph back that everything was okay. "Just like Trump did to you".
