Calling it now.


I would pick Warren as the most likely nominee right now.

Beto's NFL viral clip catapulted him to the national level. He's been on Ellen and Colbert in the past week.

Yeah, only trouble is that if he actually wins then I'm not sure he'd be on the ticket. Would Democrats want to give up such an unlikely Senate seat in Texas, for such a young guy?

I don't know what the experts say about it, but now that Beto has entered the national stage, it's conceivable that he could be on the ticket even if he lost. Maybe not a wise decision from the standpoint of picking a running mate to safely deliver the home state of the running mate, but he just has "it" and he's gaining a lot of national attention.

Beto is what, 40? He has some time. Heck if he runs in 10 years, he'd still be considered young...but he has momentum now. Any way, if it's Warren/O'Rourke and they get the nod...you take the VP because that sets up the next generation since Warren is 69. Beto might be able to leap frog Warren. Right now even the GOP are saying he's now a national candidate.

He's 45.

He's still young. Any way, I hope he wins Texas. That would set him up well, either for the long term or national office. Having the senate under his belt can only help him.

I actually think he'd be more likely to be on the ticket if he lost.

Beto's "true to form" = this guy is a solid counterpuncher.

Q: What do you admire about your opponent?

Beto O'Rourke: I admire his sacrifice and love of country.

Ted Cruz: "I think you are absolutely sincere, like Bernie [Sanders], that you believe in expanding government and higher taxes."

The debate was a tie. Neither candidate deviated or was thrown off of their plan for electoral victory.

Cruz is correct to think his best chance is to toss freshly cut red meat to his base. There's enough of them in Texas to push him over the top, if the state stays in the bottom 5 in voter turnout. Nancy Pelosi, George Soros, Hillary (twice, at least) and even Ocasio-Cortez all got a mention, as did guns, God, and aliens. No attempts whatsoever at reaching the center were made.

Beto knows that the only way a Democrat wins in Texas is by appealing to as many different subsets of the voting population as possible, while also attempting to reach out to the massive block of non-voters with a message of inclusion. If such a task is even possible in present-day Texas, this debate didn't hurt him at all.

Whoa...6 siblings appear on a political ad against their own brother.



Six siblings of a GOP congressman endorsed his opponent. Here's how he responded.
