Inside the Cruz rally, Triumph yelled, "Ted, quick question, I have a preexisting condition that makes me vomit out of my eyes whenever I look at you". O'Rourke was behind Cruz with 49.33% of the early votes in Tarrant County and 46.1% in Collin County. It was a contest of who we are and what we believe.

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

The two candidates squared off in their hard-fought race that could help determine control of the Senate. Both say strong early voting statewide - almost 4.9 million Texans casting ballots before today - is a good sign for them.

"Sending you all love and positivity on this happy voting day!" "Just remember", Cruz cautioned Triumph.

"For a whole lot of conservative and moderate Democrats in Texas, they feel like they don't have a home in that national party anymore and we are welcoming them with open arms", Cruz told The Associated Press last week. "Why this is happening now, why the president is stirring these issues up at this moment with 24 hours before we decide this election - I'll leave that to you to conclude". But Cruz's friendliness didn't dissuade the comic from continuing to mock him. Still, late summer polls showed the challenger within striking distance.

This election is going to be decided on election day, not just by the counting of the (votes) but by who votes", Rubio said. Gillum had appeared earlier Friday with former President Barack Obama .

What pundits are saying: Nate Silver reports that Cruz's lead narrowed, noting that one of the polls they cite is a Democrat polling outlet, but FiveThirtyEight is still marking the seat as "Likely R", with a 7-in-9 chance Cruz wins (78.8%).

Cruz was backed by his 2016 presidential opponent President Donald Trump and other prominent Republicans.

But while Triumph seemed to take it easy on O'Rourke, incumbent Cruz didn't have such luck.

"I'm here at the Ted Cruz rally", Triumph announces, "or a Duck Dynasty cosplay convention".

As Cruz has embraced the White House, O'Rourke concentrated on mobilizing young voters, Texans living along the U.S. -Mexico border and people who moved to the state from elsewhere.
