Still, late summer polls showed the challenger within striking distance.

There were as many Trump hats as Cruz ones in the hotel ballroom.

Next up was Harlingen, Texas, where Triumph announced, "I'm here at the Ted Cruz rally, or a Duck Dynasty cosplay convention, not 100 percent sure".

Despite the jokes at his expense, Cruz did play along with the bit, even telling a police officer who appeared to be holding Triumph back that everything was okay.

After interviewing some voters, Triumph found Beto, asking if it concerns him if half his base thinks they can vote for him through Instagram, and if he's anxious about Texas voting machines.

Even that was a shock for Cruz, who won 10-plus contests during the 2016 Republican presidential primary and has always been considered the most powerful and popular conservative in a state full of them.

Colbert noted that Triumph had been unsuccessful in confronting Senator Ted Cruz during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, but Triumph's luck was a bit better this time around.

Aguirre, who brought her oxygen tank with her to the polls and was wearing a "Beto for Senate" shirt, saw the candidate for Senate and got very emotional.

Cruz led O'Rourke 50.9 to 48.4 percent with 81 percent of precincts reporting. "Donald Trump for insulting his wife or that mongoose for eating his offspring". "See, because he's a disgusting fish monster".

Shot back Triumph, "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you". "I'm not 'overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming'". O'Rourke supported various progressive initiatives, including the implementation of universal health care and looser immigration laws.

"Ted, is it true that you will defend the constitution at all costs?"

"I'm going to coach you", Triumph told voters.

Cruz then tried to make a joke about the Democrats taking Triumph to get fixed. "Just like Trump did to you".
