    Democrats pass on Texas in 2018

    2 major Texas democrats passing on 2018 Texas statewide races. Guess battleground Texas is dead.

    Castro twins stand up Texas Democrats for the 2018 election dance

    I'm disappointed; the Democrat Party needs fresh faces, and the Castros still need national name-recognition. The article--at least to me--stops just short of saying that they're carefully and calculatedly putting their political futures first rather than having the guts to step up now. I do think a Cruz challenger would probably be crushed, but I still wish that energizing the Hispanic base wouldn't be delayed."

    Too bad. Their polling data must indicate that they stand little or no chance. So, instead of putting up the good fight, they rather not be labeled losers. I hate politics sometimes.

    In 2010 we had the summer of Tea Party protests at town halls across America

    John Cornyn hid under his desk in washiington and never faced the people

    Like many republicans I'm sure he came to washington with good intentions.

    But he has been there too long to remember many of the conservative ideals that brought him there.


    I don't want the seat to flip to the democrats but I would like to see a different republican carring the ball for Texas

    I suppose he has to, since hes got no other options in politics.

    He promised only to serve four terms in the U.S. House, and next year’s election would mark the last time he could run and keep that promise.
    Is Beto O'Rourke On a 'Suicide Mission'?

    I dont see it going well for him hes got very little name recognition and he hasnt put himself out there on any issues

    The political Inbreeds are still on a roll in Texas. Oh well, no sense in interrupting the Texas Dark Ages until the educational standards can be lowered a bit more so people can begin to understand why Idiocracy has become the official state political ideology.
