Republicans in Texas better wake up and figure out how to get Hispanic votes and suburban votes. In my area which historically has been strongly Republican, I now have a Democrat state senator and a Democrat state rep who doesn't even live in the district. And my Congressman, Marchant, just barely won.

Republicans need to wake up!
Maybe we need a waiting period, say 5 years, before an immigrant to Texas can vote in State or Local elections?

10 years for transplants from CA, NY, NJ or WA. :mrgreen:

Kidding, of course. Kinda.
Hey! 10 year waiting period?? Well, I won't be lying if I said that I'd be willing to give up my votes if each of my concessions means two or more fewer Democratic votes.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

As a relevant thought, I wonder what the makeup of Demonrats vs Republicans is for the folks who moved in from out of state in the past few years. Really. So far this decade over a million out of state people moved to Texas, many of which come from the deep blue depths of Kalifornistan. I am curious how they ended up swaying the votes in Texas. Anyone have any links to relevant stats?

Fox News projects Dems take the house. Fox also says only 7% of the vote is in in Texas. Where'd you get 66% TAM?
It was displayed on the FoxNews chiron. But, I could have possibly misread it. Or, maybe it was a typo that fox accidentally put up wrong.

Allred has a big lead against Sessions, but Abbott has pretty much wiped out Valdez.
No, TAM, you got it right. Robert was ahead of Rafael by a wide margin at the 66% mark, but that's because the Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio areas reported in pretty early. Now it's pretty much over for Robert.

So we got to keep Abbott, Cruz, and Burgess (at least for me in Dist. 26). I'm satisfied that I was able to do my part.

It looks like the only big blue area that is missing is Harris county. We'll see if the bigger blobs of red will make up for it.

On the news tonight there was a hispanic saying he was voting or O’Rouke because he was Mexican. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
Yeah, funny, but not funny. A lot of Mexi.... I mean, Hispanics... will vote for him because they saw that.
And when they finally get to the polls, they'll see:

Ted Cruz [ ]
Beto O'Rourke [ ]

I have a feeling they'll change their minds when they see the last names
