Every time they win something just claim voter fraud and launch 50 investigations and 100 lawsuits. Isn't that their strategy? Can we set up a PAC for this? LOL

Texas Calls for Power Conservation After Six Generators Fail

The Texas grid operator called on residents to conserve energy Friday after six generation facilities tripped offline amid hot weather, prompting power prices to spike.

The power-plant failures resulted in a loss of about 2,900 megawatts of electricity, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas said in an email statement Friday. Thatís enough power for about 580,000 homes and businesses. Natural-gas fired plants make up all of the generation that failed, an Ercot spokesman said.
