At one point, while interviewing some Cruz supporters, Triumph takes the Zodiac joke to an unexpected place. 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, " he said.

With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Cruz led O'Rourke by 51 percent to 48 percent and a margin of approximately 200,000 votes out of more than six million ballots cast.

O'Rourke supported various progressive initiatives, including the implementation of universal health care and looser immigration laws. "Well, trust me, if Beto wants to stop border crossings quicker than Ted Cruz, they can just play his album down there". "I'm not 'overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming'".
