My thought on the Texas O'Rourke/Abbott poll is that we need to heap neg ads on Abbott

there is SO MUCH dirt on him. SO MUCH. And when I say dirt - I mean FACTUAL dirt. Not made up stuff.

We need to hammer him with negative ads - which don't need to be lies. The truth of what he has done is abhorrent.

Power grid - people freezing to death in their homes. People trying to use frozen toilets. People trying to thaw snow in their bathtubs for water to drink. There is so much social media footage to mine.

Taking $1,000,000 bribe from Kelcy Warren not to fix the grid.

Grid still not fixed despite deaths and many many warnings.

Gerrymandering. Racist voting maps.

Joking about shooting reporters.

Thwarting measures to stop the spread of COVID. Crushing hospital workers under the weight of the pandemic and doing nothing to help them.

Spreading COVID at GOP meeting --- after he has been fully vaccinated AND taken Regeneron!!!!!

Doing nothing after the Walmart mass shooting.

Referring to transition surgery as "genital mutilation."

Stripping women of reproductive freedom.

Trying to force women to have a funeral and cremation for every miscarried/aborted fetus.

Vigilante abortion law.

Burning books - in particular, banning Texas Historical Museum from having event for book "Forget the Alamo."

Meeting with Breitbart using UT stadium. UT alums are seething mad about this.

Trying to force women to have a medically unnecessary trans-vaginal ultrasound.

Deputizing goons on the border to go after anyone they suspect of being "illegal."

That's just right off the top of my head.

Let's hit him hard as an out-of-control extremist. Let's be ruthless. Let's move the polls that way.

Has anyone ever run neg ads on Abbott? I don't think I have ever seen one except recently from Project Lincoln.

1. Agreed, gotta play hardball with races in Red States. nt

The truth- short and sweet and often - is needed to change the race dynamics.

2. Those issues will appeal to people who already don't support Abbott...

…won’t shift a lot of other votes.

3. Spend Money In States Where We Have A Chance

TX is NOT one of them.

It's throwing away campaign money.

5. Exactly

I want her to win so badly, and think she has a good chance with enough support.

7. Texas is not a red state. It is a non-voting state.
