    Check their bank accounts and see if they've grown over the last couple of years then follow the money. If it leads to Soros then they're being bought out. Soros knows that if he can turn Texas blue, it's a lead pipe cinch that a socialist will be elected president.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    One more added to the pile.

    Rep. Kenny Marchant, R-Coppell, who won a close reelection fight in 2018, won’t run in 2020.

    With Dallas, Houston and Austin getting bluer and bluer.............

    And Abbott is not helping..

    The media narrative, even cited by Fox News, is that Texas is indeed in danger of turning blue. Not buying it quite yet. Perhaps after redistricting following the 2020 census moving forward.

    Unless something untoward changes big time it’ll be blue after 2022 or 2024. AOC’s backers are in state recruiting candidates now.

    What sucks is it won't turn blue because Texans are changing their minds, it'll turn blue because of all the liberals who moved here when their companies left California, Chicago, NYC ...
