Man it would be great if people would start realizing that 'millennials' are very equally distributed and white male millennials actually prefer R over D by 9%. Please avoid wide-brushing vast swaths of people. Source.
Thanks!

You may have heard about Beto's DUI history. He himself has mentioned it at his town halls (as journalists love to mention to show how honest of a person he is). Guess what? Turns out Beto has been leaving out some crucial details from his retelling:

The law enforcement reports show two elements of the incident that have been overlooked: that there was a crash involved, and that O’Rourke allegedly attempted to flee.

The people who will vote for Beto don't care about such things.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

The President tweets:
I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas - weak on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!

At the risk of bad karma for wishing ill on people.... if he's the next obama, I kind of hope he gets pinched for another dui and leaves public life.

If he kills a woman while DWI then maybe he can be a Kennedy.

To the best of my knowledge, I don't have any liberal friends. Some moderates, I guess you might call them, but no liberals.

Unlike Obama, that guy isn't coming out of the "Chicago machine", and thus hiding what he's done in the past will be much more difficult.

I don't do social media but I have not heard anything about Cruz in the news at all. It seems like this will be a tight race till the end. I hope Cruz supporters turn out in November.

Bingo .. He's being shunned by the major media on purpose. He's held rallies all across the state but barely gets a mention. VOTE folks, VOTE .

The DemocRats continue to prey on the uninformed using shameless fear mongering as their primary arguments.

Yesterdayed a call, on my CELL phone, from a female volunteer in Plano who was calling me as if we knew each other, to encourage me to vote for Collin Allred because " she had suffered a debilitating illness in her family and only Allred would protect healthcare" or some such nonsense.

If I even knew who Allred was, I would have offered her a Sessions yard sign. I told her she was misguided and leading others astray and not to ever call my personal cell phone again. She was using her personal phone and caller ID provided me with her full name, bless her heart.
