Ted Cruz fends off Beto O'Rourke in Texas Senate race

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

"This election wasn't about me, and it wasn't about Beto O'Rourke", Cruz said.

The president praised the senator as "beautiful" and smart, a far cry from two years ago when he repeatedly mocked Cruz as "Lyin' Ted", made fun of his wife's appearance and suggested that Cruz's Cuban-born father had a hand in the assassination of former U.S. president John F Kennedy. He raised a staggering $70 million, the most of any Senate candidate in history, according to USA Today.

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. "They're energised", Cruz said on Monday. We know that the hard-left right now, they're angry.

There were as many Trump hats as Cruz ones in the hotel ballroom.

But Cruz's win was not immediately evident, as might have been expected in a normal year for an incumbent Republican senator in Texas. Wandering through the crowds, roasting Cruz to his own supporters - many of whom couldn't help but laugh at their own candidate's expense - Triumph finally came across his white whale.

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. It's wild that these people are laughing along and agreeing with Triumph, yet are STILL voting for Cruz.

Cruz, 47, made no secret about wanting to run for president again once Trump leaves office.

It wasn't Beto O'Rourke's night.

Cruz scoffs at the notion that O'Rourke could beat him. But the battle with O'Rourke proved that many Texas conservatives remained angry after Cruz clashed bitterly with Trump in 2016 and refused to endorse him during the Republican National Convention.

"You told me this is very emotional for you", Haake noted. For the last few months of the campaign, O'Rourke routinely outraised Cruz as momentum for the El Paso congressman grew and the race tightened.
