    $20 million? Would that even be enough?

    Texas is currently R+10.

    I'm sorry, I think Sam Webb has a better chance of breaking 1% nationwide than Sadler would have even if someone were to give him $20 million.

    And its a crying shame, given how sleazy Cruz is.

      Money needs to be allocated where it will have the greatest effect. And pouring money into Texas for a small chance of winning isn't wise when it would come at the expense of Missouri, North Dakota, Virginia, Montana, etc.

      I understand what your saying, but...
      Dems need to make a fresh start in Texas.

      Cruz got selected by a tiny minority of voters.
      He is sleazy, unpersonable. He is a brat.
      He has a sense of entitlement. He's expecting to coast to victory ala Martha Coakley.

      Paul Sadler needs the money to get around to all the newspaper editiorial boards.
      He needs to get around to all the women's groups.
      He needs to get around to the hispanic groups.
      He needs to get into the big cities to the AA groups.
      He needs to get out to the wind farmers and talk about the production tax credit.

      That's not really a whole lot of money.

      Then he needs to be helped with some superpac/ progressive issue ads in Sept.
      Transvaginal probe ads
      wind farm ads
      voter suppression ads
      These ads need to be run on their own merit in Texas.
      I don't think that's a ton of money.

      I think we can catch the gop sleeping and catch an electorate that's ready for something different.
      Once he's challenged, I think Cruz would assist in his own takedown.
      If the experts and the pollsters keep sucking the wind out of Texas Democrativ Party, and they keep losing ground, it's never going to get better. You have to start building for the future sometime.
      I would say it should have been in 2008 when we had the momentum and money to possibly take down John Cornyn.

      You can't make this stuff up.
