    ICruz's chief strategist says he prays for the soul of anybody running against Beto O'Rourke in 2020. Is that just baiting Democrats? I like Beto but I can see trump 2020 thinking he's red meat, too nice, too easy to beat or something. There was a lot of successful baiting in 2016 to get Sanders and Clinton supporters to hate each other, be on the lookout. 

    I know just the basics of O'Rourke's platform but i liked all of it. But I also think we need people like him in the Senate....would he have a better chance trying again, against Cronyn, in 2020?

    Once the dust settles a little I am anxiously awaiting any news from Kampala Harris. What I've seen of her record and what she fights for, I'm behind it. 
    Beto has a young family and said that they agreed to try for the senate, give it all they got and then relax and be a family. I’ve never seen anyone work as hard as he did, and we almost pulled it off.

    That said, I am not sure I’d want him to run for Pres. I want an for sure win on the Dem side. Biden, Harris, Booker are three I’d like to see. I want someone who can clap back on the lies and bs Trump will spew.

    Also Cornyn is much more liked in Tx than Cruz. Something like 400k voted against Cruz but for the Republican Tx governor. Also Beto won the native Texan vote by 3 points. Things that probably wouldn’t happen against Cronyn.

    Welp, it wasn't the Blue Wave and Trump repudiation that I was hoping for but not too bummed. Main goal was taking the House. Happy that Texas represented, Beto came two points within Cruz. Thats pretty impressive for a Progressive in Texas. Texas also flipped two major red house seats in Sessions and Culberson. I feel like Texas was more of a wave than Florida. But still bummed about the state of the nation, Colorado looking better and better.
