Response to FDRsGhost (Original post)

27. I don't see it in Texas, not statewide. Best of luck!

I hate Ted Cruz, but he carried Texas against Trump even. Texas is gerrymandered so much that Austin, which is liberal, is Republican.

There was a time when Texas elected Ann Richards as Govenor, but the Repubs have made mincemeat out of it since then. Plus, with the exception of the inner city metro areas, and the Hill Country, Austin, and within 70 miles, it is very conservative, Obama hating, country. Perfect for Ted Cruz.

If they start hating DT, they might elect a moderste Dem, especially a Hispanic. I don't live in Texas now, but I go there frequently to see my liberal friends and conservative family. I was very active in politics there years ago. Hope I'm wrong and a Liberal Dem wins, but it won't happen.
