1. This is a good thing

Joaquin, if he goes true to form, will keep Cornyn on his toes.

I think he has a really really good shot, if he runs the right kind of campaign.

8. Speculation and supposition are legit pats of feature articles, but are not LBN

When he announces that he will challenge Cornyn, that announcement will be LBN.

I'm Sorry I must lock this thread.
