  •  It's a huge fight and it's going to take a lot (9+ / 0-)

    of people working really hard, but I do think it can be done. I have never been able to figure out why the Democratic party does not throw everything they have at Texas. If we could turn Texas blue again, all our worries would be lessened. Texas was blue not that long ago.

    •  It's an uphill battle now... (7+ / 0-)

      because of the gerrymandering. With some notable exceptions, Democrats' winning seems hopeless, so nonvoters turn that into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

      I have never been able to figure out why the Democratic party does not throw everything they have at Texas.
      One thing I do know is that we're going to set fundraising records in 2014, and that's definitely money that cannot be spent in other states. So that's good news in terms of TX billionaires not funding GOP candidates elsewhere, but potentially bad news in terms of not funding Dem candidates elsewhere.
