  •  TX is not MS (0+ / 0-)

    MS has no post-industrial, white-collar metro areas that tend to attract (or retain) white Dems. TX has Austin, which is nearly as big a containment area for white Dems as the triangle area of NC. Dallas and Houston also seem to be headed in that direction on a smaller scale. East Texas is a good comp for Mississippi. Texas as a whole is not.
