Stephen Colbert hilariously parodies Ted Cruz campaign song

Mr. O'Rourke owned up that he tried to go by Robert as a student at Columbia University, but when his friends found out that he was known as Beto, that name stuck. Cruz's campaign ad, which features a short country music jingle, claims O'Rourke chose the nickname to "fit in".

"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.

"Liberal Robert wanted to fit in, so he changed his name to Beto and hid it with a grin", the lyrics say. "Beto wants those open borders and wants to take our guns". Republicans cast 1.5 million votes in the Senate primary; about 1 million Democrats cast a vote in their primary.

Ted Cruz's real name is Rafael Edward Cruz. My name is Rafael Edward Cruz.

"Now, those are wonderfully popular positions if you're running for the Senate in NY or MA or California", he said. Colbert exclaimed. "What are you doing?"

"If conservatives are complacent ― and mark my words, we are going to see historic turnout from the extreme left in November ― which means if conservatives stay home, we have the potential, we could lose both houses of Congress", Cruz said. Texas hasn't voted Democratic in a presidential election since 1976, hasn't elected a Democratic governor since 1990, and hasn't elected a Democratic U.S. Senator since 1988.

The Texas Republican tweeted the 60-second radio ad Tuesday night, shortly after he and Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke advanced to a closely watched November matchup.
