Cruz will have his seat threatened by Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke, and already, Cruz is grasping at straws to discredit his competition. Mr. O'Rourke owned up that he tried to go by Robert as a student at Columbia University, but when his friends found out that he was known as Beto, that name stuck.
Cruz said O'Rourke was "running hard to the left" by embracing positions like open borders, amnesty and undermining the Second Amendment.
Cruz labeled O'Rourke as a "left-wing liberal Democrat" and compared him to Vermont U.S. Bernie Sanders during a conference call with reporters before the polls even closed on Tuesday.
"Now, those are wonderfully popular positions if you're running for the Senate in NY or MA or California", he said. Not a chance on earth he'll get a vote from millions of Texans. So what? "Ted" Cruz's real name is Rafael.

Earlier this week, Cruz appeared on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt's program and warned listeners that Republicans could lose the U.S. Senate and the House in November's midterm elections. Texas has not elected a Democrat statewide since 1994.
Mr. O'Rourke has been raising more money than Mr. Cruz in recent quarters and has tried to awaken a dormant Democratic vote in rural parts of Texas by relentlessly holding town hall-style meetings.
