Texas election: Beto O’Rourke Senate
loss paves the way for 2020 presidential bid

Independent [UK], by Tom Embury-Dennis

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 11/7/2018 6:21:53 PM

It’s not the most typical scenario: a Democrat who lost against a widely-unpopular Republican incumbent has become one of the potential frontrunners in the next presidential election. Then again, Beto O’Rourke is not your typical political candidate. The Democratic congressman, who sought to unseat Ted Cruz in the Texas midterms, garnered national recognition for launching a campaign based on unity and bipartisanship. His race broke fundraising records and spurred voter turnout across the Lone Star state, comparable to presidential elections. For a region that had not elected a Democrat to statewide office in

Sounds good to me. He can siphon off another $70 million for a losing cause.

If he couldn’t beat Cruz, whom Trump rocked like Tyson in his prime, how does he beat Trump? Maybe he should win something else again first?

Shouldn´t you at least have some CLUE about Texas before you write an article about Texas?!?!?!?!?

Ted Cruz is clearly NOT "widely-unpopular" in Texas!!!!! He is not the most "personable" of people, but his conservative credentials are impeccable. That is ALL that matters to many of us!!!

Which is EXACTLY why he won -- even when his opponent outspent him 3-1 (with money mostly donated by radical LIE-berals from places OUTSIDE of Texas like California and New York)!!!!!!!

Stupid English/journalism majors who fell in love with their hyped image in all those monitors on set. WAY overpaid and zero honor, honesty, merit or simple decency.

The Abrams Machine Is Not Done Yet

Stacey Abrams is not conceding. That’s what she said at a press conference in Atlanta on Friday. “This is not a speech of concession,” she told supporters and reporters, “because concession means an action is right, true, or proper. As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.” But the former Georgia state representative and Democratic nominee for governor did essentially end her campaign and recognize that her opponent, Brian Kemp, the GOP nominee and former state secretary of state, will officially win the election. “I acknowledge that Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in

The Woolsey fire has burned nearly 100,000 acres in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Thousands of people in mobile-home parks and tony gated communities alike have been displaced. Many have lost their homes completely. California government officials have estimated that more than 1 million homes throughout the state are located in "high-risk" fire areas. That´s a lot of property to protect when a fast-moving wildfire is approaching, and county fire departments and volunteers often can´t manage the job alone.

Flames from the deadly Camp Fire won´t reach California´s Bay Area, but that doesn´t mean it´s not still wreaking havoc on the region. Smoke from the Northern California fire is leading to record-high levels of air pollution. Masks have become the fashion statement du jour in San Francisco the past few days. The air quality index in San Francisco rose to 258 at noon Friday, a reading which qualifies as "very unhealthy." That reading had only sunk to 209 by 9 p.m. local time on Friday.

On Friday morning, the snow from an early winter storm started to melt, and people in and around New York City wanted answers from their government officials. But on Thursday night, they were just trying to get home. The region was crippled by snow and ice, with the effects ranging from felled tree branches in city neighborhoods to children trapped on school buses for hours. In New Jersey, one person died after an accident involving a train and a car, said Gov. Philip D. Murphy. As residents recovered and demanded an explanation, The Times asked readers to share their experiences.

A House Republican who represents the northern part of Maine became the latest incumbent to be unseated as the Democrats´ blue wave continues more than a week after Election Day. Democrat Jared Golden was declared the winner Thursday in Maine´s 2nd Congressional District after trailing Rep. Bruce Poliquin in the initial tally of votes. But Golden was declared the winner thanks to Maine´s new ranked-choice system of voting, which allows voters to rank candidates in their order of preference and to transfer their votes if no candidate gets more than 50 percent.

WASHINGTON - President Trump plans to visit California on Saturday “to meet with individuals impacted by the wildfires,” a spokeswoman said on Thursday. The White House has not yet given details on where Trump will go, what he will do and whom he plans to visit. During visits to other natural disaster sites, Trump has focused on meeting with first responders and public officials, and has had less direct contact with victims than his predecessors. This will be just Trump’s second visit to the nation’s most populous state since his election. His first California visit, which he made in March

TALLAHASSEE - Nine days after Election Day, and one machine recount later, it is all but official: Ron DeSantis is Florida’s next governor. The results of the statewide machine recount which rolled by the Thursday 3 p.m. deadline, solidified what most already knew, as DeSantis has already made himself busy with transitioning to power and creating a new government. In the governor’s race, it was an anticlimactic finish to the dramatic machine recount — plagued with technical issues and an avalanche of lawsuits — with almost not change in the margin between DeSantis and his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum

Democrat Stacey Abrams ended her bid to be Georgia governor late Friday in a speech which she said was not a ´concession´ but an acknowledgment that she cannot win. She said Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate, would win the vote count which was due to be certified at 5 p.m., just as she made the speech. But she ended her bid to be the nation´s first black female governor defiantly saying that she would be suing in federal court over the election´s ´gross mismanagement´, taking a bitter election with claims of racist voter suppression into a new arena.
