It was too close for comfort, he will be back, or someone just like him, and next time he will have more imported libs to vote for him.

To close for my liking but a win is a win.
Hate that we lost the house but at least we are keeping the senate.
Dems will fight us with more investigations now.

I noticed this also and attributed it to some Trump supporters just chose not to vote in the senate race due to hard feelings from 2016. I couldn't understand someone voting for Abbot and Beto, two totally different sets of values there.

Sadly, I think it's a matter of time before we get some important political offices filled with Dems in this state. TX is growing fast. The economy here is strong. It's a great place to live and work. More and more big corporations are fleeing their overtaxed, over regulated, very expensive states in which to operate and moving to Texas for greener pastures. Sadly, they so haul in all their liberal employees with them who come here and try to change this state into the very thing they fled when they left their sucky liberal Democrat run state. It makes ZERO sense. If they want that crap that clearly doesn't work, then why don't they just stay there and live it up in the land of governmental over reach?

I'm afraid as the years go on it will be closer and eventually the tides will turn. Hopefully not, but I was worried about this one.

Odork is not going away. Too much money was invested by the liberals on this election. He owes too many favors. Libs will expect a return on their investment.

No, that’s 70-80 million Hollywood dollars down the drain. He’s got no favors to give.

He may not go away, but he’s just another Wendy Davis. The liberal flavor-of-the-month that will be cast aside for the next big thing.

It was closer than it should have been, but that is because Beto flat outworked Cruz. He out-fundraised him. He out-marketed him. He out-campaigned him. Cruz got elected because he is a Republican in Texas...that is the tide that is changing, as that will soon no longer be enough. *** holes better come to work.

For those that keep saying this was close, it was because of the candidates and not the parties. Abbott won easily by double digits because he is well liked and his opponent was bad. Cruz barely won because he turned a bunch of Trump supporters off with how he initially handled losing to Trump and his opponent was very charasmatic which seems to matter to a bunch of folks these days. Texas is not close to turning blue in the Senate.

Don't forget the influx of people from other states to Texas in recent years because of our economy, higher wages, lower cost of living and no state income taxes. Not that everything Texas politicians do is perfect, but I believe the effect of the recent years of newcomers cannot be understated.

true, but if not for the Hollywood $$$ and all of the other out of state $$$ injected into the campaign it would have never been this close; but... it is really telling that it got this close in TEXAS??????

He out fund-raised Cruz because California liberals hated Cruz and thought that they smelled blood in the water.

Beto got untolds millions of dollars worth of free marketing from the “unbiased “ media.

Dude was an empty suit whose whole campaign was never about his liberal policy positions. It was about vague platitudes and “feelings”. “ we can do better”. We were bombarded on Houston TV with those inane ads.

He didn’t dare advertise his policy positions because he would have gotten destroyed if he had.

It doesn't matter where the money came from....he got it. It doesn't matter that he was an empty suit....he had a million signs out. It doesn't matter that he was a bag of **** with no real agenda. He outworked Cruz. If you can't see that, then you weren't paying attention. He may have outworked him using deception, but he **** sure did.
