In El Paso, on the other side of the state, O'Rourke told supporters he had called Cruz to congratulate him and offered to work with him to move Texas forward.

With Conan O'Brien's late-night show now on hiatus, Stephen Colbert made a decision to steal one of his rival's main correspondents for some last-minute election coverage, deploying Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to cover the Texas Senate race between Republican incumbent Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke. In contrast, Cruz raised $40 million.

Cruz is projected to win their close Senate race in Texas. After some playful back-and-forth ribbing, Triumph turned his attention to Beto's opponent.

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

Polling showed Cruz - vying for his second term - consistently ahead, but by single digits.

"Texas came together behind a common-sense agenda of low taxes, low regulation and lots and lots of jobs", Cruz told supporters at an election night watch party in Houston. One topic of discussion was the recent reports of voting machines switching people's votes from O'Rourke to Cruz.




There were as many Trump hats as Cruz ones in the hotel ballroom. "He's dishonest", O'Rourke said then.

Throughout the race, major polls showed Cruz leading O'Rourke by a few percentage points. He suggested an O'Rourke win would lead to "two years of a partisan circus and a witch hunt on the president".

"Have you ever actually heard his music?" The last time a Democrat won a Senate seat here was in 1988.

First, Triumph visited the O'Rourke camp, where he mocked the candidate's attempt at punk music in the 1990s.

Triumph finally gets his long-awaited face-off with Ted Cruz, who tried to hold his own against the insult comic dog.

He also dropped the f-word - uncensored - on live TV, telling the crowd to a huge cheer, "I'm so fucking proud of you guys!"
