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

Triumph (Robert Smigel) was certainly put to great and productive use, given that he was somehow able to score interviews with Senator Ted Cruz and his challenger, Congressman Beto O'Rourke, on the campaign trail in Texas.

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

Throughout the campaign, Cruz has assured voters that Texas is and will remain a conservative stronghold, frequently dismissing O'Rourke's media attention as hype. Ted Cruz (R) in Texas.

The race was the most expensive in the U.S. Senate's history and the first to surpass $100 million in total fundraising. In contrast, Cruz raised $40 million. Instead of tacking to the center on key issues like gun control, immigration, abortion, and health care, O'Rourke ran on a platform that was more or less indistinguishable from that of Bernie Sanders.

The Democrat got the endorsement of Texan Willie Nelson, who performed at a rally.

Still, the race should never have been this close in the Lone Star State. Trump traveled to Houston in late October on Cruz's behalf. At one point, while interviewing some Cruz supporters, Triumph takes the Zodiac joke to an unexpected place.

And Republican durability in states across the country, in an election expected to deliver a rebuke to Donald Trump, shows the party is doing something right in voters' eyes.

"Really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus after your six years in the US Senate", O'Rourke shot back, alluding to Cruz's role in leading the Republicans in 2013 to shutting down the government. Texas last elected a Democrat to Senate in 1988. Seeing a candidate you're there to vote for while you're at the polls.

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

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