Trump on Cruz: 'He's not Lyin' Ted anymore. He's Beautiful Ted'

US President Donald Trump has declared he's a "nationalist" at a campaign rally on as he appealed to Texas Republicans to re-elect Senator Ted Cruz and help the party keep control of Congress.

"With requests for tickets exceeding over 100,000 online, the Trump Campaign has organized a tailgater to take place in the afternoon leading up to the rally starting at 6:30 p.m. CT".

Houston Police intervened on Monday after a Trump supporter in a "Make American Great Again" baseball cap, KTRK reports.

O'Rourke said it is time for Texas to have a Senator "who could not care less about what the NRA or the gun lobby, or another political action committee thinks".

In September 2016, after delivering a ringing non-endorsement of Trump during the Republican National Convention, Cruz finally reversed course and declared that he would support Trump for president.

Cruz gave back as good as he got. Cruz is in a competitive race against Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, in his bid for a second term in the Senate.

Trump also said that he calls him Cruz and "Texas Ted".

The rally comes on the same day as early voting kicks off in Texas.

Cruz added: "I look forward to campaigning alongside him in 2020". It's called a nationalist.

"No, I like Ted". O'Rourke said he had planned to be in the area before Trump's rally was announced and that it was a "happy coincidence". "And he's a very smart guy", Trump said.

Cruz touted his newfound companionship with the president.
