WASHINGTON: The last elections of the United States Senate (all local hours):
Beyonce endorsed the promising Texas Democratic Senator, Beto O & Rourke, on the dominant Republican Ted Cruz in the last hours before the next home state surveys.
The Dutch Dutch launched a series of Instagram messages with a black and white "Beto" rug that partially covered the face on Tuesday afternoon.
O & Rourke himself resumed one of the images under the title "Thank you, Beyonce."
A congressman from El Paso, Rourke is trying to become the first democrat to win the state office in Texas since 1994. He has drawn the admiration of many celebrities, including Texas country music Willie Nelson.
Cruz dismissed the third-party campaign as too liberal for Texas since O & Rourke supported universal healthcare and prevented President Donald Trump.
Republicans have the objective of maintaining control of the Senate in the vote on Tuesday.
Democratic long-distance prospects for capturing a majority of the Senate are supported by the hope that their supporters will go up to the polls. Democrats and some independent ones were motivated by the rhetoric and anti-immigration policies of Trump and their efforts to dismantle the health care protections promulgated under President Barack Obama.
Democrats have the story on their side: 2002 was the only mid-term election in the last three decades when the party that occupied the White House won the Senate seats.
The Republicans have a narrow 51-49 majority. Democrats need to win two seats from the Senate to win the majority. But they and their two independent allies defend 26 of the 35 seats in play. These 26 seats include 10 in states that Trump won in 2016.
