Robert Smigel, as Triumph, has fun roasting the lefties who turn out for O'Rourke, but he saves his best material for dragging Cruz within an inch of his life.

Jim Carrey encouraged Democrat Texans to "vote like there's no tomorrow" on Twitter, and he took shots at Ted Cruz by calling him a "bloodsucker", which was depicted in an original drawing by Carrey.

The Texas Senate race between Republican Sen. Hollywood money came pouring in from Kyra Sedgwick, Bradley Whitford, Zooey Deschanel, John Goodman, Wanda Sykes, Zach Braff, John Slattery and more.

With such a close race, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert borrowed one of the shrewdest political minds from Conan and sent him down south to cover the campaign trail. Trump traveled to Houston in late October on Cruz's behalf. He describes Cruz's desire to repeal Obamacare as something that could potentially kill "way more people than the Zodiac", emphasizing the "way more" again and again so many times that the Cruz supporters chuckling at his joke (but still supporting Cruz) have to actually think about it.

O'Rourke had reminded voters of Cruz's original Trump moniker - "Lyin' Ted" - when the candidates last faced off against each other in late October. "It's why the nickname stuck - because it's true".

Darren Fletcher: 'Paul Pogba not disciplined'
It was something in training. "We know what Paul Pogba is capable of and Marcus Rashford has the pace to cause anyone problems". He needs these two days to see.


Throughout the race, major polls showed Cruz leading O'Rourke by a few percentage points.

Once he made it to Texas, Triumph started out by talking to the O'Rourke camp. He insists he won't run for any office higher than Senate, but that's done little to quash speculation that he could challenge Trump for the presidency in two years. Seeing a candidate you're there to vote for while you're at the polls.

"Ted, I have a pre-existing condition that makes me vomit out of my eyes whenever I see you", Triumph shouts from the back of the room during the Cruz rally.

Finally, Cruz tries to get in a zinger about how it was the Democrats who neutered Triumph, and the Insult Comic Dog is ready for it.
