After Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) kept his seat in Texas, holding off a strong showing from Texas state Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-El Paso), many people online were not happy.

O’Rourke, who raised an enormous amount of cash and drew national fixation, had clearly captured the hearts of people online. Many people made their thoughts known almost immediately after the race had been called.

The loss for the Democratic candidate was not met well on Twitter, though some people had hope about O’Rourke’s future.

Clearly people online had a candidate they wanted to see win.
