Senator is a state-wide office...so is Governor. Senator Cruz won by a rather small margin; Governor Abbott won by a sizeable margin. I think the difference between the two races highlights that Texas is still a very conservative state, AND that Senator Cruz was late "getting into the game" against Robert O'Rourke, especially considering the amount of money poured into the state for ol' Robert.

Think about this. Republicans not only retained the Governorship, but also Lt. Gov, and all the other top-level statewide offices. Do not forget that this was a mid-term election, and historically, the party NOT in power takes often large numbers of seats in mid-term elections. I'm not saying this was a great outcome, for our state or nation, but it could have been a LOT worse compared to how things have occurred HISTORICALLY. When the 2020 election comes, people really need to pay attention, and get to work early to make sure that those lost seats are recaptured.
Well cruz didn't do himself any favors by making it obvious that he's bought and paid for by big media. Selling us out on net neutrality got him a LOT of hate, for example.

Next election is even more critical. Demographics are changing fast. More inflows to Texas.
Yes. It was VERY CLOSE. Harris county were I live took a big loss today. :grumble
Yeah, that is really bad. She didn't get a majority, so maybe they can call for a runoff? I don't know if that applies to the county judge.
