Certainly true if the republicans nominate someone like Greg Abbott for president. If it is someone like Ted Cruz, or worse yet Donald Trump

???

Trump won Texas 52-43 in 2016 - about the same as Abbott.

While you and I might think Trump is terrible, clearly that is not a view shared by everyone. I don't know if we will ever know or not but my assumption, as well Trump's personal belief, is that his visits to Florida and Texas in the last week are what put those candidates over the top.

And, while you think it takes someone like Trump to organize resistance, it ALSO takes someone like Beto to get out the vote.

Dems have to avoid another Hillary in 2020 and I am not currently placing odds on that happening.
