Beto O´Rourke’s loss to Ted Cruz is a heartwarming
reminder that money can’t buy elections

Washington Times, by Becket Adams

Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke’s Senate campaign crashed harder Tuesday evening than a speeding Volvo driven by a drunk judge’s son. Glum-faced news anchors have called the Texas Senate race for incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. By 10:40 pm EST, the Republican held a 3.3-point lead with 38 percent of precincts reporting, ending one of the most expensive elections in American history. Cruz raised $40 million in this election cycle and spent roughly $33.8 million, according to the Center for Respective Politics. If you think that’s a lot, it’s not much compared to O’Rourke’s haul.

I was about to say that after raising $69 million Beto should at least get a "participation trophy", but since he pocketed $10 million of that, I withdraw that thought.

Anyhow, that is a lot of cash flushed down the toilet for the democrat donors. I love it!

And the best part was his classy concession speech..."I´m so f***ing proud of you," Democrats sure love their potty-mouthed rock stars. Oh well, they still have Occasional Cortex.

BS. If money didn´t buy elections, the crooks running wouldn´t actively court the "donors", and wouldn´t later make laws to benefit them. We have got to face the reality that we are subjects in a uniparty kleptocracy.

Congratulations to Senator Cruz - he prevailed despite all of the free publicity and encouragement given Beto O´Rourke by every broadcasting and publishing outlet and by the owners and contributors of social media. Also, even the semi-truckloads of cash donated by celebrities and socialist interlopers weren´t enough to tip the election.

Again, congratulations to Senator Cruz and to Texas.

Even though he lost, the downstream damage he wrought by luring dreamy-eyed libs to the polls here in Harris County means their straight-ticket voting turned out all Republican judges. Even popular, effective Judge Ed Emmet lost to a 27 yo Spanish-English medical interpreter born in Colombia. Oh, she has no court experience.

Money didn´t buy Beto´s election, but it bought a whole lot of others.

Like Confused Cortez, O´Rourke is the new face of the dems. Name recognition and a money magnet. Hillary, Warren and Biden need to worry now at the next convention. Beto the fake Mexican might be the next Obama on the stage.

Outside money JUST ALMOST bought the election.

So did all the slobbering FREE media coverage and propaganda stories cycled ad infinitum about how likable O´Rourke was and how Senator Cruz was mean and hateful.

The really SCARY part is that media fluffing of O´Rourke throughout the process ALMOST held sway over RATIONAL THOUGHT by those who voted for him.

Surely, TEXANS would not support open borders, higher taxes, gun control, late-term abortions, and the like of the Socialist agenda.

The gullible went for the "likability" theme, in which like Nobama, they never REALLY knew who "Beto´ actually was until AFTER it was too late, and it really didn´t seem to matter--only being ´hip´ and some how ´smarter´ than those evil people supported traditional TEXAS values.

Cruz was very wise to jump on the Trump train. His feelings about the Great Orange One appear to have evolved and Texans appear to approve. Never-Trumpers had a bad night and will have an even tougher time in 2020 when Trump is on the ballot. Better recruitment of attractive House candidates has to be a priority for the GOP going forward. They will not always be so lucky in choice of opponents as getting to face “F-bomb” O’Rourke and his elitist cronies. Anyway, nice win for Cruz who is starting to look a lot more Presidential. 2024?

Ever the gentleman and class act "Beto" ... a childhood nickname for "Roberto" ... conceded to Cruz with several f-bombs.

For anyone who doesn´t think that the Dems want illegal aliens in this country to turn elections, look no further than the poster above (#6) and the too-close elections in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Montana, etc. All swung by the Hispanic votes, many, no doubt, voting illegally.

Don´t forget Bloomberg. Information I heard on the radio just now 970 AM Joe Piscopo´s show interviewing a local NY assemblyman was that Bloomie poured money into network TV and their digital channels which can influence all the cord cutters who are low info. This crosses the full tri state area. You and I may not watch these channels but a lot of people, including older people do, and these spots were all Trump scare spots.

Bloomie is another rich socialist we or a higher power needs to crush.

Ted Cruz is my guy so the win is great.

There are, however, two very important lessons from this race.

1. The fact that it was this close - in Texas! - should scare the pants off of us all. It should have been around 10%.

2. There could not be a clearer example of the need to undo the progressives greatest success in their century long campaign to free the federal government from the "chains" of that pesky old Constitution:

We desperately need to mount a campaign to repeal the 17th Amendment. Without it senate races would not be polluted by floods of money from other states. The founders intended for states to each pick their senators. They were right.

#15, Cruz did not "jump" on the Trump train. He and Trump were both going against entrenched GOP politicians when they ran against each other in the primary. They were riding on the same train. One of my big disappointments about Trump is the way he chose to defame Cruz as "Lying Ted." That very thing almost cost us one of the strongest Constitutionalist in Congress.

Agree with others here. A Cruz win by only 2.6% is scary. Looking at the Texas elections map, Beto carried all the usual suspects; i.e., the big liberal urban areas. The only contest was Tarrant County/Ft. Worth but Beto still won there. I´ve said it before. If conservatives think Texas is a Red beacon, I´ve got news for you - it ain´t all that. Texas is in the top five states running a huge deficit, the educrats are firmly in control, and the Lt. Gov.(R), who nominally sets the agenda for the legislature is a dunce. The bad guys are going after the low hanging fruit in the local and state races, so the fight goes on.

The steady drip-drip-drip of anchor babies given citizenship when their illegal alien parents manage to get the pregnant mom over the border in time, means that the country´s demographics are steadily shifting in favor of the Giveaway Party. Ignorant, unAmerican, in many cases, antiAmerican, illegal aliens and their kids are turning the tide in Texas.

If the Dems finally get Texas as a reliable Dem state, that adds 38 to the Dem column. They have California (55), NY (29), and Illinois (20) in the bag. With Texas that is 142 electoral college votes from 4 states, over half of the 270 to win.

The plan to import millions and millions of foreign lower class folks, looking for handouts, and anxious to vote for more of them, is working perfectly for the Dems.

Wow, #6. I didn´t know that about judges in TX.

A glance over at CA, and you can see that in Hispanic dense regions, there are no Anglos elected. Feinstein had a bit of a scare in the primaries. She´ll no doubt be retired and maybe on to meet her Maker after this term. I doubt she could win again (even if she were 20 years younger).

Oregon and Washington are going that way, turning into lawless States, filling up with anarchists and illegals finding sanctuary there.

How utterly suicidal!

I totally agree #20.

And yes, money DOES buy elections. Or gets very close. So does massive illegal immigration and fraud. The DemonRATS are slowly boiling us alive. Notice that even though the election map looks extremely red, the left has a strong hold on all the major urban areas where the population is concentrated. They are using that advantage to leverage all the other non-Democrat controlled areas to flip them. It´s working too.

The allure of San Antonio’s Castro brothers has been building for years and their status as the crown princes of a new era of Texas Hispanic politics is now well established. As one longtime Democratic consultant said, they have successfully established themselves as the next generation of leadership in Texas, with an Ivy League pedigree and reputation for strategic thinking. But something happened this election cycle: Beto O’Rourke. As the Democratic consultant said, “Julián and his brother are like Bing Crosby and Perry Como—who just saw Elvis.”

Mia Love sued to halt vote counting in the Utah race where she is trailing her Democratic challenger by a razor-thin margin, saying her campaign must be allowed to issue challenges if they dispute the validity of mail-in ballots. In a contest where "every single vote is crucial," the Love campaign claimed poll-watchers have seen a few cases where voter signatures on ballots accepted by election workers did not appear to match those on file in Democratic-leaning Salt Lake County.

Amid the violations of law by Broward and Palm Beach County elections officials, the data provides apparent good news for Republicans. First, despite the national media´s typical laziness and derelictions, the local press has largely been assiduous and conscientious -- certain framing aside. Second, core concerns raised by leading Republicans (some of which were rhetorically overblown) have been validated by multiple judges. The ineptitude and misconduct has not gone unnoticed.

The Republican Party lost its House majority on July 28, 2017, when Sen. John McCain ended the party’s seven-year quest to repeal ObamaCare. House leadership had done an admirable job herding cats. On the second try, we passed the American Health Care Act in May. Then McCain’s inscrutable vote against the Senate’s “skinny repeal” killed the reform effort. McCain’s last-minute decision prompted a “green wave” of liberal special-interest money, which was used to propagate false claims that the House plan “gutted coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” That line was the Democrats’ most potent attack

Tuesday’s midterms served up mixed results, handing both parties big wins and big losses. It will take some time to sort out what it means. Yet the evening did nonetheless provide one total, complete, unalloyed loser: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. For a decade Ms. Warren, 69, has been busy trying to remake Washington in her progressive image. Her role in creating a new financial regulatory apparatus gave her outsize influence over the bureaucracy. Her successful 2012 Senate bid gave her a megaphone to rail against “billionaires, bigots and Wall Street bankers”—and Donald Trump.

Amid the inevitable outrage fest touched off by the election results, hardcore partisans on the left solidified around one particular angry narrative: If and when Democrats lose, it is because white women remain insufficiently woke. The Usual Suspects crafted this argument around exit polls of the Senate race in Texas, which revealed that white women broke for Republican incumbent Ted Cruz by a significant margin — 60 percent cast ballots for him rather than for Robert Francis O’Rourke (“Beto” to you), who received just 39 percent of their support.
