On Tuesday night, the Texas Senate race that captivated the nation came to an end. Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke lost to GOP incumbent Ted Cruz.

O'Rourke mounted an impressive challenge to Cruz, who had a clear advantage in the state, but O'Rourke's efforts weren't enough.

The race captured a ton of national attention, with O'Rourke gathering many fans from outside of Texas.

So when the result became clear, many of those people were VERY upset.

They expressed their frustration the only way they knew how — they memed about it.

The memes flowed from both Texans and non-Texans alike.

I DON’T EVEN LIVE IN TEXAS BUT BETO SHOULD HAVE WON

Some were angry.

“Ted Cruz is to be the projected winner” #Beto

I did not procrastinate my homework to watch the election results for y’all to let T*d Cr*z beat Beto

Some were sad.

Some took their frustrations out on Texas.

I TRUSTED Texas to vote for Beto but at the end of the day:

"Texas didn’t deserve this woke king."

Of course, their feelings could be expressed through a Spongebob meme.

But some were more hopeful.

They had bigger hopes and dreams for Beto.
