Well this is huge. Cruz has been running a very tight Senate race tonight against Beta O’Rourke, but now the networks are all calling the race for Ted Cruz:

Whew. This race is way to close for my blood, but only 79% of the vote is in. So hopefully Cruz’s lead will go from +3 to even more before the night is over.
But either way, I’ll take the victory to keep Ted in the Senate.
