Sen. Cruz Projected To Win Re-election After Tough Challenge From O'Rourke

MSNBC, which didn't censor O'Rourke's comment, later apologized. In turn, Cruz garnered praise from President Trump, who referred to his former political rival as "Beautiful Ted" in the days ahead of the vote.

With the win, Cruz kept alive his hopes of mounting a second presidential run once Trump leaves the White House.

For all Trump's much talked about disapproval ratings, a referendum on his presidency delivered millions of thumbs-ups.

He raked in donations from across the country and even set a new record for Senate campaign fundraising by collecting more than US$38 million in the three-month period from July through September alone.

The fuzzy, felt-skinned creation of veteran comedy writer Robert Smigel showed up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night to unveil a video documenting the Texas senate race. The days of "Lyin' Ted" being humiliated by Trump are a distant memory for Texas Republicans. 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. One topic of discussion was the recent reports of voting machines switching people's votes from O'Rourke to Cruz. It's the time for action.

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

Even that was a shock for Cruz, who won 10-plus contests during the 2016 Republican presidential primary and has always been considered the most powerful and popular conservative in a state full of them. We know that the hard-left right now, they're angry.

"They're filled with rage and hatred for the president".

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

A Texas Democrat hasn't won any of the almost 30 statewide offices since 1994, the country's longest losing streak.
