Over the past several months, the mainstream media and the left gushed over Beto O’Rourke, but it seems their enthusiasm was all for naught. Moments ago, the race was officially called for Senator Ted Cruz.
This came across the wire moments ago:

Even before O’Rourke was dealt his coup de gras this evening, the left-wing media already began preparing the narratives to prop him up in case he lost.
Look at this video from Reuters:

And he wonders why he lost in Texas?!
As we mentioned earlier voting in the 2018 midterms completely shattered previous records. As of Tuesday, roughly 36 million votes were cast through early voting and absentee ballots.
On Monday, it was reported that this amount of early and absentee votes is “far exceeding 2014 count one day out,” which shows that far more people are participating in the midterms than in previous years.
The overall early voting numbers were very good news for Republicans:
“The NBC News Data Analytics Lab, using voter file data from TargetSmart, found that 35,526,881 early votes were counted nationwide as of Monday. In states that have early voting, 42 percent of voters are Republican, 41 percent are Democrats, and 17 percent have either independent or have another party affiliation.
Republican-affiliated voters have outpaced Democratic-affiliated voters in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee and Texas. In Nevada, Democratic-affiliated voters have outpaced their Republican counterparts.
Whether Republicans keep control of the Senate and/or House will likely come down to a handful of races across the country.
