    It's hard to imagine Texas turning blue, ever, but it's possible. Fear and anger are some of the most effective agents to compel people to take action. The current administration has definitely stirred some of these emotions.

    Last night Ted Cruz in the debate said that the hardest thing about his job is missing basketball games with his daughter. Ted, the reason that I do what I do now in trying fire you and elect @BetoORourke is because I no longer get to be with my daughter because of gun violence!

    Im from Ohio. You are on my good list. I'm proud to support @TedCruz for #TXSen. This is why Texas Sheriffs #ChooseCruz --> "He's been an outstanding senator for Texas." "He's a man of his word." "This is the type of person you want to rely on." #KeepTexasRed #TexasDebate

    I'm proud to support @tedcruz for #TXSen because he has the support of the National Border Patrol Council and he will secure our borders! #TexasDebate

    Not a Beto fan at all. Think he’s terrible for Texas. With that being said the money donated by his supporters was for his campaign and should be used for his campaign. If they wanted to donate to other candidates they could have through the DNC

    I get why people like #Beto but I can’t get passed his crazy views of just allowing people who are here illigaly too just stay and be registered voters. That seems fishy. Just allow them to stay and renew a license not vote.....#southparkforpresident

    He's right. Beto is in the major leagues, Ted is playing recreational softball.

    Here are some facts you vote for Beto who is running the Democratic Agenda you lose everything. Socialism, open borders. Democrats want to take away your 2A rights and so much more. Democrats only want NEW WORLD ORDER.
