Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
This result does not fit the Democrat/media election narrative. It doesn’t fit that narrative at all. – In what the corrupt Democrat activists in the mainstream news media spent weeks calling a “closely watched special election” in Texas, the Republican candidate won in a landslide Tuesday night.
The race was for Texas House District 28, a suburban district on the outskirts of Houston. You know, the kind of suburban area where the corrupt media has been trying to convince us that GOP candidates were struggling with Millennial-aged housewives, who supposedly don’t like President Trump and would certainly be turning my home state of Texas into a “blue” state anytime now, maybe even this year.
That was the narrative, anyway. Of course, it was the exact same narrative Texans heard back in 2014, when the Democrats, led by gubernatorial candidate Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis, were going to sweep into power. But then Davis got shellacked by Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, in an election in which Republicans again swept every statewide office, and in which Davis won just 39% of the vote.
And it is the exact same narrative Texans were treated to in 2018, when Irish Bob “Beto” O’Rourke poured $80 million of California and New York dollars into a senate race against Ted Cruz. Despite out-spending Senator Cruz by a 3-to-1 margin, Irish Bob came up a crapper – just as he did in his presidential effort – losing to Cruz as GOP candidates once again swept every statewide office, as they have done in every Texas election cycle since 1994.
Interestingly, Irish Bob, in his new role as Democrat grassroots specialist, became very active in the HD 28 race, going door to door in the suburban neighborhoods, attempting to use his boyish charm to convince those “angry” suburban housewives to get out and vote for Democrat candidate [consults notes] Eliz Markowitz. O’Rourke’s efforts, combined with millions coming into the race from out-of-state Democrat interests, would surely turn the tide this time.
Oops. Bad plan.
As is his habit, Irish Bob came up a crapper once again. Seems his boyish charm has lost its allure to Texas suburban housewives who are sick to death of the nonsense his party is putting our country through, and pretty damn happy with the booming economy that 26 years of Republican leadership has brought to our state.
In the end, GOP candidate Gary Gates easily won the election, carrying the vote by a whopping 58-42% margin. Mind you, this is a district that President Trump won by just 10% in 2016, and which the outgoing Republican won by only 3% in 2018.
If this be a Democrat “bellwether,” then by all means, bring more bellwethers on.
God Bless Texas.
That is all.
