Irish Bob O’Rourke has dropped out of the race.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politic ... ar-AAJIkfF
One less communist in the race.

Guess he has taken in enough money to last him until the next race he gets in.
Per the article:
He is not expected to run for any other office in 2020, despite persistent efforts by party leaders and political donors to coax him into another bid for the Senate.
Of course, I’ll believe it when I see it.
I believe he is running for state office again. I base that on the fact that two years ago he was against gun confiscation, two months ago he was for it, and in the last week he has denied that he ever advocated it.

Exit polling is not looking good for Cruz

Robert Frances is carrying 98% of the deceased vote.
The dead always vote Democrat.
Especially in Duval County.

I find the other choice dishonest, untrustworthy, unconnected to reality.
I find Cruz fairly consistent in his past stances in defense of the Bill of Rights. He is somewhat of a bulldog in that regard. Bulldogs aren't pretty. Cruz is not handsome, nor cool, nor particularly likeable. But that's not what I want in a senator. I want a senator who will preserve constitutional rights and contain the regulatory State (which puts me in opposition to quite a number of Beto's stated positions on economic, jobs, and energy issues).

Beto is handsome, and acts cool, nice, and caring. I would think the Obama Administration would disabuse anybody of the merits of being a handsome, cool, nice and caring government official.

...I also firmly believe that we do need to regulate gun ownership more than is the current standard.
The devil is always in the details. What additional gun regulatory measures do you want to see?

I’ve never heard of this guy until now, and all of a sudden, the Texas Tribune is saying that it’s too close to call? I don’t know much about him, but I went and checked O’Rourke’s website for his stances on 2nd Amendment issues, and he seems to be solidly in the “ban civilian access to ‘weapons of war’” camp.

Anybody know much about him, and does anyone believe that he really can beat Cruz?
Similar hype as for Wendy Davis, with a similar likely outcome.
