Beto O'Rourke vs. Ted Cruz: Live Texas Senate election results

Tonight we find out if media hype and celebrity endorsements can win the Democrats a seat in the U.S. Senate in Texas.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is running for re-election in a closer-than-expected race against Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas. O’Rourke has made headlines for record fundraising and causing a surge of Democratic voter enthusiasm nationwide. He is, however, likely too liberal to win in Texas, as he supports Medicare for All, supports banning AR-15 rifles, and wants to impeach President Donald Trump.

Cruz has highlighted his record and run a steady campaign characterizing O’Rourke as out of touch with Texas’ conservative values. Polling has at times shown a close race, but Cruz has consistently led. A victory for O’Rourke would be a true upset in what was always a long-shot bid to oust Cruz from the U.S. Senate.

The polls close at 9:00 p.m. ET.
