I Agree Curt. I know a lot of people that have historically voted red that voted for him because they are tired of the rhetoric and he was able to paint himself as a hard working "moderate", which he is not. He definitely outworked Cruz, deception or not.

Exactly why you should have to live in the state for a period of time before you have voting rights. 3-5 years minimum. Will never happen, but should.

I agree he out worked Cruz. Cruz had a small push at the end and won by a lot smaller margin then he should have. Cruz is going to need to step up his game this term.


I expect to see Beto back in politics. I bet he makes run for the Whitehouse. I see a Obama 2.0 in him. Bunch of hope and change speech with **** for substance.

It's disheartening, but that's what you get when you're the fastest growing city in the country. Expected to grow in population by another 46% by 2021. A ton of new business and infrastructure on the horizon. Georgetown is not the same town I grew up in.

Republicans need to pay attention to what Beto did well...he reached our youth. Republicans focus very little effort here, and I think this was a huge part of what made this closer than it should have been. We must learn from this.

The thing that Beto did well is lie. Now maybe we didn't do a good enough job of exposing that early and often enough.

Berry said Cruz had 18 staffers for the campaign, beto had 800+. I guess that's how they had so much time to send text messages.

So last night scrolling through social media I saw a comment from someone stating the following:
“Ted Cruz did NOTHING. I saw no ads, no campaigning, no city hall, NOTHING. At this point, Republicans are voting for the party and not the person. Just ignorant and close-minded. Beto CARES about Texas with every fiber of his being. And you let him, and the future of Texas, down.”
Then the following from the same person:
“I have no idea what Cruz stands for but I can you it isn’t Texas’ true values and our future because he couldn’t even attend a city hall”.

But according to them, we are the ignorant and close-minded ones.
Classic. Glad we don’t have to deal with him but let’s hope he doesn’t decide to run for president like people are asking him to now. . If it was this close in Texas, I don’t even wanna know how close it could be in the entire US.

Turn off the tribalism for a minute.

What has changed?

The GOP still controls the Senate like they did on Monday, and they still don’t have 60 votes to do whatever they want.

However, the GOP no longer decides what gets discussed and voted on in the House.

Senate - same
House - problem

Somehow in Trumpland this is spun as a “tremendous success”.

In about 3 or 4 months we’ll start to see how tremendous of a success it really was.

The democrats in the house are going to go so far left that they will expose themselves for who they really are. IMHO, if the republicans had kept the house, Trump would not have had much to point to to run against. He just got a big lift in his reelection bid by having a democrat (socialist) run house to run against. Is the overall situation good for the country as a whole? No, but it is what it is.

Or until Ruth Bader Ginsberg (or the other lefty Justices) decides to kick the bucket. If all we get out Trump's 8 years is a restoration of sanity in the SCOTUS, that's one hell of a tremendous success.

Having a much larger majority in the Senate is huge so it's not the same. He doesnt have to rely on a few of those pansy *** Republicans to get his appointments though now. The house was already a problem....besides tax cuts what did they give Trump that he wanted? Did they give him the wall? Did they give him immigration reform? There really wont be much difference with the Dems controlling the House vs all the never Trumpers and Rinos. More of the same unfortunately. The best thing was so many of the fake Republicans are out so when they regain the House in 2020, it will be with Republicans that actually support Trump. Trump's second term is where he will really make his mark on returning this nation to where it should be.

Trump's second term is where he will really make his mark on returning this nation to where it should be.

The Senate was already on a roll with judicial confirmations, blowing by the progress of recent administrations. That doesn’t change.

The House Republican leadership pretty much left Trump alone.
They passed Obamacare repeal.
They passed the tax cuts.
They pass the Defense Authorization Bill.
They passed Kate’s Law and legislation targeting sanctuary cities.
They passed class action lawsuit reform.
They passed legislation to provide more oversight over unionized federal employees.
They passed infrastructure bills and regulatory reform legislation.
They passed hundreds of other less visible bills.
Much of what they passed died in the Senate.

Now they won’t be sending anything to the Senate,and the House Democrat leadership isn’t going to leave Trump alone.

Democrats will be able to redraw congressional districts in a number of states where they won state control yesterday, and many suburban voters gave their Republican congressman the boot in favor moderate or liberal Democrats. The idea that the GOP is going to waltz back into House control in 2020 by running Trumpists in suburbia seems like some pretty wishful thinking to me. I suppose it will depend on what Trump does to win those voters back and who the Democrats nominate to run against him.

And the avg American cared about which part of this? The tax cuts for sure after that not much else. Trump took care of Obamacare on his own by getting rid of the individual mandate. The House got very little accomplished in two years. Immigration was a huge part of Trump's campaigning and they got zero accomplished on that.

The House eliminated the individual mandate entirely in the tax bill, effective in 2019. Trump expanded the number of people who could file a form to apply for an exemption to the individual mandate in 2018, but many people are still not eligible to apply for an exemption and will have to wait until 2019 when the tax bill kills it completely.

Since when did conservatives stop caring about Kate’s Law, ending sanctuary cities, increasing pay for the armed services, beefing up the military, clamping down on frivolous lawsuits, and decreasing regulations on infrastructure development and energy transportation?

Honest question: can you call yourself anything you want on the ballot? I assume you can since Robert Francis O’Rourke called himself Beto on this years ballot. Maybe John Cronyn should work up a convenient nickname for 2020... maybe “Make-you-rich Cronyn” or “Free-everything Cornyn”. That outta flip a few blue votes

This. Take a page from Beto: find someone younger, more appealing to the middle, and more charismatic to pull some of the independents/libertarians.

While you are celebrating Ted's victory/near loss, here's what happened in Texas...
1st Court of Appeals...slaughtered
3rd Court of Appeals...slaughtered
4th Court of Appeals...slaughtered
5th Court of Appeals...slaughtered
14th Court of Appeals...slaughtered
(31 out of 32 Appeals seats went to Dems)
Tarrant turning blue.
Many urban counties turned much deeper blue.
Conservative Rep Matt Rinaldi...lost
Moderate-Right Rep Ron Simmons...lost
Moderate-Right Rep Rodney Anderson...lost
Conservative Sen Konni Burton...lost
Conservative Sen Don Huffines...lost
hopefuls Deanna Metzger, Lisa Ryan...lost
Jonathan Boos filling open R House seat...lost
Statewide races like Lt Gov and AG, etc... were close but held on, but at least they won.

If it is the younger voter it seems to me the parents of these young voters are at fault. Bring them up in they way they ought to go, dont let the "higher" learning institutions bring them up for ya. Start talkin politics at a younger age with your children cause common since and history of failed politics arent being taught.

Common sense and sound logic doesn't belong in a good political bashing.
