Ted Cruz, the supreme politician with eyes on the White House

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.

Two hours before most of the state's polls closed, she posted a series of photos on Instagram posing in a black and white "Beto for Senate" ballcap. Ted Cruz, said he doesn't understand why anyone would be angry with asylum seekers "doing what any human being would do".

Cruz led O'Rourke 50.9 to 48.4 percent with 81 percent of precincts reporting.

When it comes time to interview the man himself, Triumph/Smigel can't resist flinging a few zingers O'Rourke's way. At one point, while interviewing some Cruz supporters, Triumph takes the Zodiac joke to an unexpected place. 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.

Leroy Sané trolls Manchester United after being linked with Old Trafford move
Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League after a thorough demolishing of Southampton at the Etihad on Sunday. In the other Sunday game, Chelsea thumped Crystal Palace 3-1 in the London Derby at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea.

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.

First, Triumph visited the O'Rourke camp, where he mocked the candidate's attempt at punk music in the 1990s. Cruz, however, tried to have a moment with Triumph.

Carrey wasn't finished in the back and forth, taking one last shot at Cruz by dragging Donald Trump into the situation.

"This was an election about hope and about the future, and the people of Texas rendered a verdict that we want a future with more jobs and more security and more freedom", Cruz told supporters after defeating O'Rourke.

The singer joins a number of other celebrities - including fellow Houston native Travis Scott - who have voiced support for the candidate. "Just like Trump did to you".
