WASHINGTON – The latest news on the US Senate elections (local):

6:30 in the evening.

Beyonce has backed the Democratic Democratic Senate in the last few hours before the end of polls by her hometown, Beto O'Rourke, over reigning Republican Ted Cruz.

Native American Houston published a series of Instagram posts with a black and white "beto" cap partially covering her face.

O'Rourke himself then tweeted one of the pictures under the title "Thank you, Beyonce" again.

O'Rourke, El Paso Member of Congress, has been trying since 1994 to be the first Democrat to conquer the nationwide Texas office. He is passionate about many celebrities, including country music icon Willie Nelson.

Cruz rejects his opponent's excited campaign for Texas as too liberal, as O'Rourke supports public health and accuses President Donald Trump.

Republicans seek to retain Senate control in Tuesday's vote.

The promising prospects of the Democrats for the conquest of a Senate majority are based on the hope that their supporters will participate in the elections. Democrats and some independents were motivated by Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric and policies and his efforts to reduce the protection of health care adopted under President Barack Obama.

The Democrats have history on their side: 2002 was the only midterm election in the last three decades, when the party that held the White House won Senate seats.

Republicans have a scant 51-49 majority. Democrats need two Senate seats to win a majority. However, she and her two independent allies defend 26 of the 35 occupied seats. These 26 seats include 10 in the states that Trump won in 2016.
