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 worst kind of monsters who cover for liars and real traitors. I have no words for morons who quote them, trust them and actually admire them.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exacted revenge against one of her most outspoken detractors Tuesday night, blocking Rep. Kathleen Rice from landing a seat on the high-profile House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi lobbied for other members to join the panel over Rice, leaving the third-term New York Democrat off a list of her preferred members for the committee during a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday night, according to multiple sources. The effort came despite a full-court push from the New York delegation to secure a spot for Rice, a former prosecutor, on the panel that oversees everything from impeachment to guns to immigration.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

According to a new report by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard — who just announced her intentions to run for president in 2020 — once touted her work for an anti-LGBT organization and railed against “homosexual extremists.” Gabbard’s prior comments are in sharp contrast to her more recent record in support of LGBT rights and seem to stem to work she did with her father. Gabbard’s father, Mike, was an anti-LGBT activist in Hawaii and ran a political action group that promoted traditional marriage. Rep. Gabbard is even quoted in one of the press releases.
