Stephen Colbert hilariously parodies Ted Cruz campaign song

Cruz will have his seat threatened by Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke, and already, Cruz is grasping at straws to discredit his competition.

O'Rourke's given name is Robert, but he goes by Beto, a childhood nickname that stuck. Both Cruz and O'Rourke faced token opposition in their respective primaries and were expected to be the nominees for their parties.

"You may not have heard of Beto O'Rourke, but no candidate gets voters more excited than 'Not Ted Cruz, '" Colbert said during his opening monologue.

Beto wants those open borders, and he 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. But as pointed out by Chris Cuomo, Cruz himself goes by Ted although his name is actually Rafael. "It's in that first line: 'If you're going to run in Texas you can't be a liberal, man 'cause liberal thought is not the spirit of a Lone Star man'". Colbert exclaimed. "What are you doing?"

"You're absolutely right. My name is Raphael Edward Cruz", Cruz acknowledged.

The Cruz campaign released a radio jingle making fun of O'Rourke with lyrics like, "I remember reading stories, liberal Robert wanted to fit in, so he changed his name to Beto and hid it with a grin".

That Mr. Cruz would move so quickly to try to skewer his opponent is a measure of how seriously he is taking the challenge from Mr. O'Rourke, even though no Democrat has won a statewide office since 1994.
