Ted Cruz in Texas, but his concession speech fired some other folks up tonight.

"Texas came together behind a common-sense agenda of low taxes, low regulation and lots and lots of jobs", Cruz told supporters at an election night watch party in Houston.

O'Rourke's loss should put to rest the notion that a left-wing progressive can win in deep-red Texas without compromising on key issues.

In 2016 Mr Cruz ran for the presidency, winning the first state to vote, Iowa, and going on to finish runner-up to Donald Trump in the race for the Republican nomination.

"They're energized", Cruz said Monday. In turn, Cruz garnered praise from President Trump, who referred to his former political rival as "Beautiful Ted" in the days ahead of the vote. "They're filled with rage and hatred for the president".

Cruz argued that his opponent's support for gun control and universal health care were too liberal for Texas. In total, Cruz and O'Rourke raised more than $100 million.
