2. Regardless of 2018, how would Beto do in Texas after his gun confiscation comments?

5. He could "re-nig" on his comment too..

Realizing it wasn't going to be possible, he could modify his comment. It's not like repuKKKes don't change their stance in a heartbeat with little to no repercussion. Just saying...confiscation assault weapons is a pipe dream...NEVER going to happen anyway.

11. Beto has taken some positions during his presidential campaign which

would really hurt his chances at being elected statewide in Texas. Gun confiscation isn't a winning issue in the Lone Star State.

4. Beto most likely loses a close race BUT

He would help down ballot races much more than the other candidates so if he was interested in flipping the State legislature, then running for Senate would help the flip.

6. It would also brand him as a two-time loser in Texas

I think he's keeping his power dry for a better chance down the road.

7. Surely there's a danger in leaving it ? If he can get the same or closer than his Cruz race, that

would look good and keeps his momentum ?

8. Cruz was an easier target

No one likes him. Cornyn has played it smarter in the Senate and has made far fewer enemies back home. Beto would not fare as well as he did against Cruz.

9. Fair point, and I agree with you, however, where else can he go other

than back to the House ? What otherwise is on the electable horizon for him ? Governor ?

12. In Texas, we have been asking ourselves that ever since the 2018 election

No one really expected him to win the nomination for president--OR to challenge Cornyn. So, where indeed?

10. Agreed as far as candidates

The only X factor in his favor would be that this next go round might have a more unified and larger D turnout.

But, I don't think he gets there in the end either way, either.
