Polling showed Cruz - vying for his second term - consistently ahead, but by single digits.

Cruz led O'Rourke 50.9 to 48.4 percent with 81 percent of precincts reporting.

But will it be enough to upset - or even stay close to - incumbent Republican Ted Cruz in a state as deeply conservative as Texas?

Triumph spoke with Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke first and joked with him about his support with younger voters. Triumph asks Beto O'Rourke before adding, "besides the ability to regenerate your tail?"

'Does it concern you that half your base thinks they can vote through Instagram?', Triumph asks, drawing a laugh out of the Democrat. Without giving them all away, here are the seven sickest burns Triumph lands on Ted Cruz.

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.

Triumph then asked voters if they were impressed by the way Ted has forgiven Donald Trump, and "if Ted loses do you think he'll end up back with his first love, that mute lady from The Shape of Water, because he's a disgusting fish monster!"

'Let's be civil here, OK, because this man - nobody should be yelling at this man in a public place, ' Triumph said. "See, because he's a disgusting fish monster". "I support spaying and neutering", he says.

He also references the "Cruz is the Zodiac Killer" joke by saying that Cruz's stance on repealing Obamacare would kill way more people than the Zodiac ever did.

But Triumph seemed ready for the remark and hit Cruz with one parting shot.

Triumph buttonholed Cruz, who came with a zinger, telling the comic dog puppet, "Just remember, it was the Dems that took you into the vets to get fixed".

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.
