Democrats are trying to turn Texas blue. If Republicans pretend it isn't happening, Texas will flip right under their noses.
What they appear to leave out of the article is that the 4 Republicans totaled 1.5 times what the Dim did in the primaries.
Living in Texas I can tell you TEXAS IS IN REAL DANGER OF TURNING BLUE!!! Mock all you want but we have been inundated with many socialist immigrants leaving blue cities and the overwhelming illegals coming over with their socialist voting habits! We are drowning folks!! The rats are 9 seats away from flipping the state house blue! And when that happens you can bet your butts that we will have OPEN borders and our guns will be confiscated! Along with automatically making illegals that cross our border American citizens without penalty or fines, ...they will automatically be added to the register roll for the sole purpose of keeping Texas blue from here to kingdom come! SCARY CHIT ..YEAH!!! The open border crap scares the beeJeebies out of me! That’s all I’m saying!
Democrat Eliz Markowitz, an education specialist,
Education specialist. Is that someone who teaches kids how to put condoms on cucumbers and that you can be a boy or a girl or whatever you want, and that white people should be ashamed of their race? Should go over well in Texas. It is going to take massive turnout to beat Democrats this year.
It will be interesting to see what happens. There was a lot of talk about the Democrat sweep of Fort Bend County in the 2018 elections, which was also the deciding factor in the Democrat sweep of the 1st and 14th Court of Appeals elections, but even the Democrats who won those elections largely credit Beto O’Rourke’s spending. That is not likely to be as much of an issue this time but, still, Democrats winning Fort Bend County would have been unthinkable only a few years ago.
The Democrats are committed to turning Texas blue. A lot of Freepers from more rural parts of Texas scoff at the notion, but they shouldn’t. Texas is largely an urban and suburban state, population-wise. The Democrats have firm control of the major cities now, and are now working hard on the suburbs.
Unfortunately, the state and local Republican parties seem to have almost no energy. Statewide, they seem to be complacent in their belief that rural Texas will continue to hand them statewide elections without effort. In Houston, at least, the local Republican party seems to be resigned to losing all city and county-wide elections for the foreseeable future. Not only has Harris County has gone from mostly Republican county-wide office holders to all Democrat in the span of about six years, but most potential Republican candidates I’ve spoken to have absolutely no interest in running for county-wide elections in 2020.
The Democrats have no path to victory in Texas.
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.
And the Dems got slaughtered...Gates wins 58% to 42%.
