Puto did well because too many idiot voters are emotional...they have enough energy to exercise their legs to vote, but too lazy working the mush between their ears. Any effort in that arena to simply envision a Tx / US with the policies he TRUELY wanted to implement??

Come on...look at us losing the house with the immigration issue & economy. Look how Obama won Ohio & then went Trump. Voters are way too emotionally invested in frustration of the current vs what the candidates actually stand for. I find it extremely frustrating & infuriating & HATE the 2 party system. Would rather voters have to understand what public servants stand for vs getting frustrated with a party & pushed to the other side of the same swamp. Right now the right side stinks less. Just watch, 2020 will go back to the shallow end.

I had hope but they the cycle continues. Sorry for the rant but I fear the worst very long by term unless this cycle stops. Only bright spot is scotus & pray we can land one more trump pick. Should save a generation or 2 on the big ticket items.

This right here. All that doom and gloom earlier in the thread is the wrong mentality. Be a part of the solution. Engage in conversation with people. Beto had a ton of money and ran a strong campaign, but Texas’ values held serve. Political discourse will remain a constant. It’s part of the foundation of this republic.

Trump has put the question of citizenship in the next census count. This will give us an accurate count for representation and redistricting. As it stands now a mathematical formula is used designed by LWL's who think all illegals deserve representation. This will take away solid blue house seats and put them with in reach of the red zone.

The issues will continue regardless of who has the house or senate unless they have both and it's by a substantial majority.

On immigration: we just witnessed the Republicans fail miserably while the Dems had their chance with Obamer in charge and they did not pass any significant legislation that would address any of the issues.

More importantly on health care: once again the Repubicans failed miserably and obviously the Dems passed the ACA which is a failure but remains in place sinking health care into a bigger hole thanks to the republican inaction.

No matter what side peeps voted for, we need the legislators to work together. The price of health care and medication is astronomical. It will be the demise of this country unless special interest from those fields along with the insurance fields gets put in check.

The turn Texas blue campaign is slowly working. Cruze is partially to blame for how close this race was he acted like a never Trumper for awhile and was out worked by a lying idiot that duped thousands into believing he (fake Beano) was the Hispanic Messiah.

We should thank Beto, he put $70 million into our economy, we should also thank God he did not get elected! I hope next time Cruz remembers this and understand he needs to work harder than his competition.

Not a big Cruz fan but I did vote for him, Still a little p!ssed at him on how he conducted himself at the republican primary. He needs to do a better job on being a regular person. Quick speaking to me like I'm 5 years old.

I am a firm believer the 17th amendment needs to be repealed, the state senate (Or however the state determines it wants to elect senators) should vote for its senators, and the people should no longer be allowed to vote for senators. And you need to be 26 to vote, or active duty or retired military to vote before then. People like Beto would not get far if that were the case.

Senators represent the states best interest, not the people of the state.

This is correct. Even Chuck Todd (who I can’t stand) said this race was only close because it was Cruz vs Beto. “If the Republicans had a more likable candidate it wouldn’t have been a close race no matter who the Dems brought”.


I am really surprised that Sessions lost up here in Dallas though

The problem is they won’t work together because they have already started working on getting re-elected. Term limits...one term.

In Houston/Harris County, Democrats won all but one or two of the down ballot races, including judgeships. That is extremely disheartening. Fort Bend County, D's won almost all the races as well. Montgomery County, all R's.

The red team needs to do some serious exit poling and figure out why it lost so badly. I have a feeling I know why, but will wait for poling results to confirm my opinion.

Beto may have lost the senate, but take a look at the effect on Houston. The longtime county judge Ed Emmet lost to a 27 year old who never attended a single commissioner court hearing. As a recent grab from Standford, she barely even lived in Houston since highschool.

Dems took all of the 59 judicial spots up for election. Houston is solid blue and the growing population and practice of straight ticket voting with have huge impacts moving forward.

I've watched the blue surge in Williamson County for 15 years. That dang Sun City with all the retired folks is a huge part of the regression in our county. So glad that MJ gal did not win.

Unfortunately this isn’t the end of all the Beto talk. Whether it’s a senate run in 2020 for Cornyn’s seat or a presidential bid, I think we’re going to be seeing a lot more. He’s already got the all important “celebrity endorsement”, so he won’t be out of sight or out of mind for awhile.

This. He will run against Cornyn, and the same out of state money will pour in to him. Texas is entering a phase where we will battle out of state interests and big city residents for control. Harris County is now solid blue and it will only get bluer. The same can be said for Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin. The other thing that seems to not be getting much attention is that a larger and larger portion of the population is accepting of socialism. This ain't the old democrat party. The leadership are died in the wool socialist who are no longer hiding that fact. I fear for Texas and our country.

Texas is not close to turning blue in the Senate.
