    ACTUALLY goes blue for a POTUS candidate (2020?), if the GOP has to spend money defending it, because it's play, that's money they can't spend in OH, FL, CO, VA.  If Wendy Davis (D) becomes TX Gov. in '14, it'll be a huge impact. (Can someone please get one of the Castro brothers to run for Lt. Gov.? and former Rep. Chet Edwards to take on Cornyn for U.S. Senate?) If Hillary is the nominee in '16, especially if Davis is Gov., then even though it's probably too soon for TX to flip blue that year, it WILL be in play and Republicans will have to spend time and money defending it. Otherwise Hillary COULD win there. And with THREE different major media markets, TX is very expensive--which is both why Dems have been discouraged from doing the hard work to become competitive and why the GOP has been very glad to take TX for granted.
