Lincoln Project launches $1M offensive against Trump in Texas

Source: The Hill

The Lincoln Project on Tuesday launched a $1 million campaign against President Trump in Texas as Election Day looms.

The Republican anti-Trump group is targeting Hispanic and female voters in the Lone Star State, where polls show a competitive race between the president and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Mike Madrid, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said Trump has "dramatically accelerated” Texas’s move to becoming a swing state.

“The polling data is undeniable and has been consistent for months -- Republican voters are leaving Trump and Democrats are historically energized to turn him out of office,” he said in a statement. “We see an opportunity in Texas and we are going to take advantage of it.”

3. So glad to hear this!!!

I wish they'd send some of their magic to Kentucky to get rid of Moscow Mitch McConnell. I wish McConnell would never see another election.

8. From your lips to god's ears

Even from an atheist. McConnell is running really nasty ads against Amy McGrath here now.

With some help Texas can turn blue, we're so close, and this could help a lot now.

5. Hooray!

Electing Biden here ends any chance for Trump. And I would dearly love to see useless John Cornyn retired. And then Beto for governor in 2022.

7. Dear Lord yes. I'm hoping MJ Hegar's chances will be buoyed by Dems momentum & Blue Tsunami

and beat Cornyn. He's been around for way too long.

15. I'm glad she did well. I just read highlights of it from the TX Tribune but i believe that's a right

leaning paper. She's got a tough hill to climb though - darn guy's ahead of her by 8 pts. He is so well funded and so entrenched w the conservative money, financial & oil/gas lobbyists $.

16. the same lame Rethug talking points of course. What else is new? The party of no platform is

definitely scared when they have to deal with disgruntled former party members because they know they're facing an uphill battle. TLP is hellbent on making sure the Con & the party of Idiots that enable him are destroyed. At least for now TLP is our friend and i thank them for their sensibility.
