MSNBC's Brian Williams later apologised for what was said, telling viewers that "we have no control over what it's in the concession speeches of various campaigns". Trump traveled to Houston in late October on Cruz's behalf.

The event comes as President Donald Trump has deployed thousands of active-duty service members to the border in response to a caravan of migrants from Central America moving through Mexico. He raised a staggering $70 million, the most of any Senate candidate in history, according to USA Today.

The U.S. Senate race in Texas was one of the most closely watched and expensive races in the country.

"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. With that in mind, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog strapped on a little cowboy hat and headed down to the Lone Star State to ask the candidates questions like "What's Ted Cruz have that you don't have?"

West Ham's Marko Arnautovic is now the highest goalscorer in all competitions at the London Stadium (9 goals). It will be a tough game, but it's definitely winnable for West Ham .

Still, the race laid bare that many Texas conservatives never forgave Cruz for clashing with Trump at the end of the 2016 presidential primary and for refusing to endorse him at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland - a move many saw as putting personal ambitions over party.

"It's the time for choosing". We know that the hard-left right now, they're angry. O'Rourke himself had been mentioned as a possible 2020 White House contender - but that was dependent on him staying within striking distance of Cruz.

"You told me this is very emotional for you", Haake noted. "They're energised", Cruz said on Monday. For the last few months of the campaign, O'Rourke routinely outraised Cruz as momentum for the El Paso congressman grew and the race tightened.

The Texas GOP had also played up O'Rourke's punk rock past - the Democrat had been in the band Foss - and two alcohol-related arrests from his 20s.
