  •  Thanks for the reminders of the urban areas, (9+ / 0-)

    WS.  Those five urban areas make up something like half or more of the state population.  It's the suburbs (often in adjacent counties) that are killing us, plus small town/rural areas.  BTW: 38 electoral votes in Texas now (36 Congressional seats + 2 Senators).  And yes, the State Lege matters, for the REDISTRICTING!

    And Texas is FIVE BIG media markets, and another 5 or six medium ones - - NOT cheap to run a campaign.

    Some attention by OFA for the 2014 Congressional reaces would be a BIG help, and would both help President Obama for the last two years of his office, and for building into the future, especialluy in these "swing states-to-be", like Texas, Arizona, and Georgia.

    I keep saying: "It's the 254-county strategy", and that requires a statewide organization, with county and on down to precinct-level organization.

    We'll get there...
