So if the dems win this seat we need to find addresses of all the new move-ins and invite them to move out of our country state. We can help them all move.
There’s something to that. One has to be pretty committed to the cause these days to publicly out oneself as a Republican, at least if you live in a city.
Of course, another reason given—at least by a lot of the Republican judges who were ousted in the last two elections—is that they like being back in private practice and don’t want to take the pay cut. I was tempted to run for judge myself this year, but I didn’t want to take the pay cut either.
I mostly know about the civil district courts, because that is where I practice. Of the 15-20 or so former Republican civil district court judges out there who aren’t retired, only two are running to get back on the bench in 2020, even though there are five Democrat incumbents with no Republican challenger.
Texas is not long for the Red state it has been for a while. I tooas a Texanpray for the kids. I now live in Florida and if either Florida or Texas flips then it’s over for Republicans and conservatives.
Also, there is no longer “straight party voting”, which is how Harris County Judge Ed Emmett was voted out for Lina Hildalgo.
I hope the end of straight ticket voting helps, but I’m a bit skeptical. But who knows, maybe enough Democrat voters will vote for President and US Senate and leave the rest blank.
Texas eliminated straight-ticket voting in 2017. It takes effect this year.
Democrats were naturally opposed.
And the Dems got slaughtered...Gates wins 58% to 42%.
