Texas Senator Ted Cruz and comedian Jim Carrey are trading shots over the actor's vampire tweet. The liberal Hollywood actor portrayed the conservative Republican as a vampire in a post supporting Democrats. The "Ace Ventura" star tweeted "Go Beto! Go Democrats!" Monday under a cartoon-like drawing of challenger Beto O'Rourke pulling back curtains as Cruz fled from the sunlight. Carrey wrote, "let the sunshine turn all those bloodsuckers to dust." Cruz fired back in a tweet calling Carrey a self-described socialist. The Texas Senator added, "vampires are dead and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat."
