Liberal turnout could decide Texas Senate race

Ted Cruz backs Trump on birthright citizenship

O'Rourke, a three-term congressman from El Paso, also told "60 Minutes" that "the more people that show up, the better we do" in Tuesday's election.

Brennan, who served in the Obama administration, has been a frequent critic of President Donald Trump. Although Texas has 254 counties, the 30 largest are home to almost 80 per cent of the state's residents.

Nearly 332,000 Texans between the ages of 18 and 29 cast ballots in early voting, which extends through Friday, according to figures from data company Target Smart.

Early voting has been huge in Texas for this year's midterm election, leading some to speculate it could be a good sign for Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke's uphill bid to beat Sen. The charismatic candidate's calls for bipartisan optimism and willingness to visit all 254 Texas counties - even deeply Republican areas that Democrats gave up on decades ago - made him the toast of national liberal circles. It's the most competitive U.S. Senate race in a generation in Texas, where Democrats have been shut out of statewide office since the 1990s.
