If Texas is going remain a solidly red state, the state Republican Party is going to have to make inroads in every major city, all of which are Democratic dominated, and court Hispanics voters in every corner of the state.
Robert Smigel, as Triumph, has fun roasting the lefties who turn out for O'Rourke, but he saves his best material for dragging Cruz within an inch of his life.
But O'Rourke visited all 254 Texas counties and often drew larger-than-expected crowds, even in fiercely conservative areas. "Is that in the GOP health-care plan?"
O'Rourke walked from his home in El Paso on Tuesday and voted at a community college, accompanied by his wife and three children. "And so, yeah, I feel good".
Triumph then asked voters if they were impressed by the way Ted has forgiven Donald Trump, and "if Ted loses do you think he'll end up back with his first love, that mute lady from The Shape of Water, because he's a disgusting fish monster!"
Barcelona's Ernesto Valverde - Lionel Messi training but no decision on availability
Lionel Messi made the trip with Barcelona but is unlikely to play as he continues to recover from a fractured arm. At the back, Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Clement Langlet and Jordi Alba are all likely to start.
Cruz scoffs at the notion that O'Rourke could beat him.
Said Triumph to Late Show viewers: "Come on, this is the man".
O'Rourke raised more than $70 million during the heated Senate race, including more than $38 million from the July to September campaign period alone. He and President Trump routinely sparred, and Cruz famously did not endorse the president during his nominating convention. It's the time for action. "DHS has worked tirelessly to ensure the security of our election systems and will always secure our borders regardless of what day it might be". "They're energized", Cruz said Monday.
"Ted, is it true you will defend the constitution at all costs, except for when Donald Trump calls it ugly on Twitter?".
Cruz, who has made no secret about wanting to run for president again once Trump leaves office, even gleefully tweeted national polls showing O'Rourke cracking the top 10 among potential Democratic White House hopefuls in 2020, arguing they show how liberal he is.
