Ted Cruz Releases Country Song Jabbing 'Liberal' Opponent After Winning Primary

Beto O'Rourke Texas

According to the New York Times, Cruz earned more than 1.3 million votes in his primary, while Democratic nominee Beto O'Rourke got a little over 641,000.

O'Rourke's given name is Robert, but he goes by Beto, a childhood nickname that stuck.

"You didn't like that dirty pull when you were running for president, and [Donald Trump] called you "lyin" Ted, '" said Cuomo, who also pointed out the obvious fact that Cruz goes by "Ted" instead of his first name, Rafael. Cruz's campaign ad, which features a short country music jingle, claims O'Rourke chose the nickname to "fit in". The problem? Cruz himself is really named Raphael "Ted" Cruz. So after Colbert sings that you can't run in Texas while being a liberal man, he rhymes it in every way he can, from talking about Spokane to referencing Tarzan. Your middle name is Edward ― that's an anglicized version of it.

"In terms of the jingle, some of it is just have a sense of humor", Cruz told Cuomo Wednesday. "You're both doing the same thing", he added.

She had made the decision that he would not return to the stage. "He's been super dehydrated", she told the audience. His next scheduled concert is May 31st in Richmond, Virginia, as part of the Soul2Soul Tour with Hill.

Cruz tweeted the 60-second radio ad Tuesday night, shortly after he and U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke advanced to a closely watched November matchup.

"We can get into name-calling and talk about why the other person is such an terrible guy, or we can focus on the big things that we want to do for the future of our country, for the generations that will succeed us", he said.

Cruz easily won the Texas election Tuesday and will take on O'Rourke in the November general election.
