Incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz declared victor in U.S. Senate race

Incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz declared victor in U.S. Senate race

Stephen Colbert's Late Show sent Triumph the Insult Comic Dog to Texas, to interview incumbent Sen. Not counting outside money, the Cruz-O'Rourke contest was 2018's most expensive Senate race.

Cruz was declared victor of the U.S. Senate race in Texas, defeating Beto O'Rourke.

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.

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. Trump traveled to Houston in late October on Cruz's behalf.

'Severe' air quality in Delhi-NCR
Delhi , so far, this season has seen only two "severe" days with the AQI crossing 400 on Monday and previously on October 30. The pollutants carried by mid-level winds gradually subside and mixes with the local pollution of Delhi-NCR.

"This is the man, what's Ted Cruz have that you don't have?"

Seemingly unfazed by Triumph's reference to President Donald Trump's 2016 attacks on Cruz's wife, the Texas Senator reaffirmed his support for the Constitution and dismissed any concerns about Twitter. "He's dishonest", O'Rourke said then.

Cruz used the opportunity to go after O'Rourke's out-of-state supporters: "left-wing national activists and left-wing national donors".

"Really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus after your six years in the US Senate", O'Rourke shot back, alluding to Cruz's role in leading the Republicans in 2013 to shutting down the government.

Chandler had a game-winning alley-oop dunk for the Suns in a game a year ago as time expired, so he knows exactly how its run. Chandler was in the final season of his four-year deal with the Suns , and was due to make about $13.5 million this season.

The race, in brief: This Texas race has been the subject of intense national attention, with O'Rourke garnering endorsements and promotion from celebrities and national Democratic figures, and was seen early as an intense battle over the Resistance vs. the Trumpists.

The waning moments of the campaign provided Democrats with hope - a Change Research poll had the candidates tied at 49 percent.

Triumph buttonholed Cruz, who came with a zinger, telling the comic dog puppet, "Just remember, it was the Dems that took you into the vets to get fixed".

'I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you!', Triumph quipped.
