    They're saying in the news that Texas is going blue, apparently five GOP Congressmen have resigned because they don't think they'd win re-election in 2020.

    Texas has been a solid Republican state ever since the South switched over during the Nixon years.

    If Texas goes blue, we lose every election I think. It would be hard to pull off a Republican victory without all those electoral votes.

    Is it time to panic?

    It is time for Democrats to put on the feather headpiece, beat the drums, and do a victory dance?

    I think Texas is still pretty Republican.

    It could be just another media lie. It's hard to know what's true and what isn't true when the media lies so much.

    A darker shade of purple at first and slowly getting more blue. You can blame Trump and how fucking useless the GOP in general is.

    O’Rourke lost by a tiny margin. There’s your first clue.

    Nevada was a swing state, but all this movement of Californians here has turned us blue. They fled California to get away from high taxes and onerous regulations, but they remain Californians at heart, so they will vote for Democrats who will impose high taxes and onerous regulations here.

    O'Rourke has a problem in Texas. The last time he and Trump spoke on the same day, Trump's speech was attended by tens of thousands of Texans. O'Rourke organized his own speech the same evening, and 20 people showed up. My vague recollection is that they both talked on border issues, and Trump received the A-oks, and Texans were saying Beto who? :rolleyes:

    lolol.

    Oh, when you mentioned O'Rourke I didn't know who you were talking about. Everyone always calls him Beto.

    I think a man who runs for President should have something more on his resume than that he ran for Senate and lost.

    You know, it’s less about Beto himself and more about how goddamn shitty republicans are. Any ole’ dem would have had the same results.
