Ted Cruz holds back the Democrat Texas tide - for now

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is projected to win re-election in Texas, fending off a tough challenge from Democrat Beto O'Rourke, NPR reports.

The fuzzy, felt-skinned creation of veteran comedy writer Robert Smigel showed up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night to unveil a video documenting the Texas senate race.

And as of this writing, O'Rourke trailed Cruz by only 3.1 points - significantly less the Real Clear Politics' most recent polling average margin of 6.8 points. The last time a Democrat won a Senate seat here was in 1988.

Ted Cruz has made the case that O'Rourke's outside supporters are just more evidence of his being out of step with Texan voters on most issues, while O'Rourke has argued that Cruz is a dishonest yes-man to Trump, despite Trump having thrashed him in the primaries.

Triumph spoke with Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke first and joked with him about his support with younger voters. He and President Trump routinely sparred, and Cruz famously did not endorse the president during his nominating convention.

'Let's be civil here, OK, because this man - nobody should be yelling at this man in a public place, ' Triumph said.

Some 80 Palestinian protesters were injured, on Monday, during the 14th naval march at the northern borders of the besieged Gaza Strip.

"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.

And Republican durability in states across the country, in an election expected to deliver a rebuke to Donald Trump, shows the party is doing something right in voters' eyes.

Then, finally, after years of waiting, Triumph finally came face-to-face with Cruz at a Republican rally.

Aguirre, who brought her oxygen tank with her to the polls and was wearing a "Beto for Senate" shirt, saw the candidate for Senate and got very emotional.

"I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you", the puppet shot back.
