USA midterms: Texas Republican Ted Cruz beats challenge from Beto O'Rourke

In North Texas, early voting results had O'Rourke with a strong lead in Dallas County with 65.7% compared to Cruz's 33.68%.

Trump and Cruz were bitter 2016 rivals, but the president visited Houston late last month to solidify the senator's win.

"The Trump administration has "done quite enough to intimidate voters without staging military rehearsals on the day our nation exercises our most important democratic obligation", Burke said".

"Because he represents everything that Donald Trump isn't", the voter insisted.

The Democratic congressman from El Paso raised a whopping $69 million and growing - the most of any US Senate candidate in history.

Cruz is projected to win their close Senate race in Texas. He finishes the interview by saying, "what does Ted Cruz have that you don't have, aside from the ability to regenerate his tail?"

He also said O'Rourke's support for impeaching Trump, relaxing federal immigration policy, decriminalising marijuana and implementing universal health care were too liberal for even numerous state's moderate Democrats and independents. So with Conan on hiatus this week, Stephen Colbert "borrowed" Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to send down to the lone star state to gauge the vibes at Beto and Cruz rallies.

"It's the time for choosing. They're energised", Cruz said on Monday. "Please know this: we will ensure border security".

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 wasn't Beto O'Rourke's night.

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

"They're filled with rage and hatred for the president". "I think we have every indication, based on turnout so far, that we're going to have a very good day tomorrow".

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