Ted Cruz on Tuesday, but he delivered an impassioned concession speech that focused heavily on the groundbreaking network of support that helped fuel his bid for Congress.

Cruz was declared victor of the U.S. Senate race in Texas, defeating Beto O'Rourke.

Cruz was backed by his 2016 presidential opponent President Donald Trump and other prominent Republicans.

But the battle with O'Rourke proved that many Texas conservatives remained angry after Cruz clashed bitterly with Trump in 2016 and refused to endorse him during the Republican National Convention.

"My confidence is in the people of Texas", O'Rourke told reporters on Monday night, moments before staging a raucous rally with Mariachi band at the University of Texas at El Paso, mere blocks from his home.

"It's the time for choosing".

The U.S. Senate race in Texas was one of the most closely watched and expensive races in the country.

The race was the most expensive in the U.S. Senate's history and the first to surpass $100 million in total fundraising. Both said strong early voting statewide was a good sign for them.

He raked in donations from across the country and even set a new record for Senate campaign fundraising by collecting more than US$38 million in the three-month period from July through September alone. "They're filled with rage and hatred for the president". In turn, Cruz garnered praise from President Trump, who referred to his former political rival as "Beautiful Ted" in the days ahead of the vote.

Cruz held off the Democratic rising star to win re-election. His statewide campaign galvanized voters in every Texas district, and he may well be credited with pulling a few Democratic representatives to victory.
