Triumph the Insult Comic Dog roasts Beto O'Rourke, 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. Trump traveled to Houston in late October on Cruz's behalf.

For all Trump's much talked about disapproval ratings, a referendum on his presidency delivered millions of thumbs-ups. He raised a staggering $70 million, the most of any Senate candidate in history, according to USA Today.

But Cruz's win was not immediately evident, as might have been expected in a normal year for an incumbent Republican senator in Texas.

The last time we saw Triumph the Insult Comic Dog in action, in a 2016 Election special from back when we thought that comedy mattered, he was lamenting the fact that he couldn't get an interview with Ted Cruz. O'Rourke supported various progressive initiatives, including the implementation of universal health care and looser immigration laws.

Jim Carrey encouraged Democrat Texans to "vote like there's no tomorrow" on Twitter, and he took shots at Ted Cruz by calling him a "bloodsucker", which was depicted in an original drawing by Carrey.

"My confidence is in the people of Texas", O'Rourke told reporters on Monday night, moments before staging a raucous rally with Mariachi band at the University of Texas at El Paso, mere blocks from his home.

West Ham fans laud Grady Diangana on Twitter for his performance
His idol is Ronaldinho and there is little fear in a player who never stopped running at defenders. As a young professional, I had to think about what is best for my career and where I can improve.

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

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

In 2016, Cruz ran for president in a crowded GOP primary. "Please know this: we will ensure border security".

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

However, that race meant Mr Cruz has a legacy of national infrastructure should he campaign for the White House again. A Democrat hasn't won a Texas Senate seat since 1988, and no one from the party has captured any statewide office since 1994, the nation's longest political losing streak.
