  •  Thanks Ono for the reminder. (9+ / 0-)

    I donated to the Obama Campaign. Even though I live in Texas which everyone knows Romney and the Republicans will easily carry--at least this election cycle, next cycle who knows. Anyway I know they'll spend my campaign contribution where it can have the biggest impact. Go Obama, and make November 6 a day of celebration in your household Ono and mine (and to all others reading, yours and yours and yours too).

        Presidential outcome in Texas this November 6. There are predictions that there may be up to 6 more Democrats in the Texas House--but the Repubs will still hold an overwhelming majority. So there will be some changes locally and state-wide. We'll likely hold on to or win a few more congressional seats, and probably the U.S. Senate election will be closer than the Republicans would like (the Republican candidate Ted Cruz is a horrible candidate in the Rand Paul mold, but I just don't know if the Dems can pull that one out yet).

        But the tide IS slowly changing in Texas. It will be a lot closer here in 2016, so that probably some national political advertising money will have to be used here then. Right now there is almost zero national political advertising here--that's both a blessing and a curse. And 2020 is a ways into the future, but that may be the big year for a national flip in Texas. It takes a long time and a long distance to reverse the direction of a battleship, but reverse it we can and will--and then the Republicans can once again experience first-hand what it's like to be the also-rans for hopefully a long long time. Texas is going blue, just not fast enough for most of us. But patience is a virtue--as well as dogged determination and hard work.
