Ted Cruz and Beto O'Rourke Got Into it with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog: WATCH

Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke could indicate the political future of "ruby red" Texas; revealing whether the Lone Star State could "turn blue" due to shifting demographics and a wave of younger voters.

Beto O'Rourke has already used his once-longshot Texas Senate run to become a national Democratic phenomenon, shatter fundraising records and set off whispers that he could be a credible 2020 White House contender.

Colbert noted that Triumph had been unsuccessful in confronting Senator Ted Cruz during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, but Triumph's luck was a bit better this time around. One topic of discussion was the recent reports of voting machines switching people's votes from O'Rourke to Cruz. Almost 4.9 million people voted in Texas' 30 largest counties during the early-voting period, surpassing the total number of votes cast throughout the state in the last midterm election, according to the secretary of state's office. "Beto O'Rourke, he's showing the f-ck up".

First, Triumph visited the O'Rourke camp, where he mocked the candidate's attempt at punk music in the 1990s. The charge was later dismissed. The Republican cited O'Rourke's support for Bernie Sanders' "Medicare for all" plan, his calls to impeach President Trump and his openness to abolishing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. I have a preexisting condition that makes me vomit out of my eyes whenever I look at you. The Cruz campaign cut a commercial responding to O'Rourke that featured a double-amputee Vietnam veteran named Tim Lee.

'Vote your values': Oprah Winfrey campaigns for Stacey Abrams
Shortly after her speech, Winfrey posted videos on Instagram of herself going door to door canvassing for Abrams. Winfrey told the crowd that anyone that chose not to vote is ignoring the challenges others had to face.

"Tonight's loss does nothing to diminish the way I feel about Texas or this country", he said.

Cruz tied himself to Trump in the final days of the campaign, inviting the president for a major rally in Texas.

Turnout is always a big factor, and in this Texas race even more so, as Democrats will need to overcome historically low voter turnout in the state in order to push a win over the incumbent Cruz. That proved to be the case. "[It was about] securing the border and keeping our communities safe, defending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights".
