HK: Texas Republicans remember what competitive November elections feel like
High anxiety among GOP operatives; as election day winds down, did Republicans come home?; Democrats have run more television this cycle than any time since Tony Sanchez
let’s stipulate that I thought Beto was a long shot and had maybe blown it.
do not get beat; they get fired and O’Rourke refused to “brand” Cruz seeming to more resemble a pied
piper leading a quixotic band of enthusiasts than a political campaign
of course, Donald Trump made this
about himself and what was normally a mid-term referendum became a referendum
on steroids leaving Republicans having to defend Trump’s race to the bottom
still may work.
