For any Democrats that vote For the judge we need out just like Cruz who would sell his soul just to win

Jerel Boza · September 8, 2018 at 11:24 pm

Honest Texas won't turn blue.

1. Gerrymandering is something Texas does constantly.

2. Majority of Texas is basically the Tea Party type.

3. Honestly, you need more Dems to move to Texas.

If the electorate looked like the population the majority of the electorate would be independent.

veronicajade20 · September 8, 2018 at 11:48 pm

Even if it does turn “blue”, will they truly be promoting progressive policies? Doubtful. 🙄 We need more than a two party duopoly system.

joeconsumer · September 8, 2018 at 11:54 pm

Bottom line, who would YOU rather sit down and have a drink with? Beto or Lying Ted Cruz?

Danny's Art · September 8, 2018 at 11:59 pm

The funny thing is trump is a legit Narrsacist. So when he brings his Cult show to Texas. He'll just talk about himself and not his flunky Ted. Also, Ted Cruz looks like a young Grandpa Monster, without the likeable personality.

Ask yourself: "Wouldn't it be nice to say bye bye to Cruz?" I think so. I personally think he's a low life; along with the rest of the establishment scum in Washington. Time to shake Washington up and vote out all incumbents in one big sweep!

BETO BETO BETO when you say it three times republicans are powerless to resist. I'm an absolutely gonna vote unlikely voter and there are hundreds of thousands of us just waiting for Nov 6, 2018.

Hakim Glee · September 9, 2018 at 12:13 am

I live in DFW area of Texas, and I can honestly say polls are absolutely WRONG Beto is going to win! I see his signs on Gun Ranges in Waxahachie, Suburbs of Frisco, McKinney, Plano and the urban areas of South,West and east Dallas. This Guy is going to win he has found the balance in Texas. Vote BETO, and I’m a Black Man and black twitter and Instagram is lit!

sir robert · September 9, 2018 at 12:19 am

ya blue in the face

regios1027 · September 9, 2018 at 12:19 am

Bennie Crawford · September 9, 2018 at 12:42 am

Texas For Beto !!

Hayden Williams · September 9, 2018 at 12:58 am

BLUE WAVE!

Raymond McComas · September 9, 2018 at 1:13 am

Listen up Texas ! You got a chance to prove you got some balls and brains !! VOTE BLUE !!!!

MediaMatters IsMyCockHolster · September 9, 2018 at 1:15 am

I've spoken to family in Texas, they think Beto is a complete whackjob. Keeps screamin' for open borders to people who have to read in the newspaper every week how ANOTHER illegal murdered/dui'd/raped etc. ANOTHER person in their community. The DNC is dead, and if it wasn't for financial support from foreign interests, you people would already be out of business.

Marcia Baxter · September 9, 2018 at 1:18 am

We can kneel or stand up, we're free Americans, thank you for your support on this issue Beto. If I were in Texas, you'd definitely have my vote. Also, we can be at a campaign rally of any politician, including trump. Unless we're causing a raucous display of shouting down the person, secret service should not check our ID, and ask us to leave. It's still a free country, it's still America.

Mister Sarajevo · September 9, 2018 at 1:29 am

Even if he wins the Senate, I don't think Texas will ever turn blue.

Barry Hussein Soetoro · September 9, 2018 at 1:35 am

Race baiting Robert Francis “El Beto” O’Rourke. That being said Rafael “Ted” Cruz is a Canadian

Ethan Andrade · September 9, 2018 at 1:35 am

Some times it's difficult to say proudly I'm a Texan whether it's Greg Abbott pushing for some discriminatory law or Cruz/Cornyn being the worst senators, but Beto has me extremely proud right now! I see a lot of friends who I would have never guessed to be political, supporting Beto! Now we can only hope they actually go vote in November!

cjs83172 · September 9, 2018 at 1:41 am

I don't think there's much of a chance of a Democrat winning a statewide race in Texas these days is very likely, especially given who's in charge there. They have an AG who's been indicted for securities fraud, and a governor and a senator (the one O'Rourke's running against) that is tied to Cambridge Analytica, with an association with a Ukranian steel magnate.

Bicc OG · September 9, 2018 at 1:45 am

Idiots will lose dumb demoshits

jack meoff · September 9, 2018 at 1:47 am

Simon Morino · September 9, 2018 at 1:55 am

Juan Palacios · September 9, 2018 at 1:55 am

cornezane · September 9, 2018 at 2:45 am

I’m voting for Beto.

Dan Bouchard · September 9, 2018 at 3:05 am

All I can say to that is I hope not.

Taralya Mcdonough · September 9, 2018 at 3:11 am

I will vote for Beto here in Texas.

Alexis Andrade · September 9, 2018 at 3:23 am

Texas will stay red

Carrie Lee · September 9, 2018 at 3:46 am

I see a future president candidate right there!

前橋みき · September 9, 2018 at 4:05 am

Sarah Bumpus · September 9, 2018 at 4:17 am
