    I'm glad Joaquin chose not to run in a primary against Beto that would have only helped Kamikaze Kruz--the name given to him by the Wall Street Journal.

    O'Rourke is going to give Cruz all he can handle, with GOP dark money already stretched thin through 11/7/17.

    The gerrymandering secret in TX, which I'm sure you are aware of, is that the 25 GOP CDs in 2016 averaged 90,000 more voters per CD for POTUS and 74,000 more voters per representative.

    All 36 house reps were reelected in TX, 25-11. 8 out of 25 GOP CDs did not have a DEM candidate at all, while curiously, the two DEM candidates who didn't have a GOP candidate were Joaquin and Beto.

    DEMs have a weak bench in TX, though quality DEM candidates are exploding across the Nation. Joaquin should stay in his CD and Julian should run for a RED CD .

    Cruz already has enough money leftover to run a competitive race for senator and there's no gaurentee that it will even be competitive

    The fact that minorities refuse to vote has nothing do with gerrymandering

    Dems are losing spots all through the the nation and have very few young quality candidates. It's pretty much the Castro brothers and Booker. Everyone else of importance is old or has already lost too badly to recover like Grimes and Davis.

    Did you miss the July trial date for the two Texas gerrymandered maps?

    There is indesputable proof across the Nation that gerrymandered maps drive down voter totals.

    Gerrymandering and voter suppression laws will not be on the AG's list of concerns .

    Their intent is reconquista. They are an abject threat to the sovereignty, rule of law and well being of this country's southwest and the states involved.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Did you miss when your boy Castro was up for re-election as mayor and the turn out was 6%? In the 7th biggest city in the US, 1.4 million people, Castro won with just 34,309 votes. There is no gerrymandering city limits, latino democrats in texas simply just dont vote.
