Jim Carrey's Cartoon Painting Shows Beto O'Rourke Pulling Back the Curtain on Vampire Ted Cruz

Actor Jim Carrey dramatically illustrated his support for Democratic Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke in a political cartoon released Monday. Carrey’s vivid drawing showed the dramatic effects the actor suggests could take place if O'Rourke beats Ted Cruz, the current Republican Senate incumbent. 

The cartoon reveals O’Rourke, 46, pulling back a curtain, which causes Cruz, 47, depicted as a vampire, to catch fire when sunlight bursts through the window.

“Go Bet! Go, Democrats! Vote like there’s no tomorrow. Let’s make this Tuesday like the end of every great vampire movie,” Carrey wrote on Twitter. “Pull back the curtains and let the sunshine turn all those bloodsuckers to dust.”

This isn’t the first time Carrey, 56, has used art to campaign for the Democratic Party. The actor has become famous for his satirical drawings, including depictions of President Donald Trump. Carrey called out the GOP for what he said was its continued investment in “Trump’s economy of LIES” in a cartoon he released last week.

“They say they’re gonna give you HEALTHCARE while working to destroy it. They make up lies about refugees while KIDNAPPING INNOCENT CHILDREN! Vote Democrat. Help save the future. DON’T FOLLOW THE RED HAT TO HELL!” he wrote Tuesday, alongside a carton of Trump and his supporters running toward the devil.

Cruz is still favored to win the Texas Senate race but polls have shown the margin narrowing, with O’Rourke trailing by three points, according to an Emerson College poll.

With the election 24 hours away, both O’Rourke and Cruz are out on the frontlines, rallying to convince people to show up at the polls if they haven’t voted already. The state's early voting numbers for this year’s midterms have already exceeded the entire voter turnout of the 2014 midterms, according to NBC Texas affiliate KXAN.

“If nothing else, it reflects the truth that we all know—that this is going to be very, very close,” O’Rourke told local reporters on Monday. “[It’s] up to every single one of us to do all that we can to make sure that we win this and I’m gonna do everything on my part. I know that our team is as well.”
