Are The Dems Doing Anything Around The Country To Take Back Governorships Of....

the now Red States?

It seems to me that the Dems should be making an organized effort to take back Governorships around the country.

I got to think that many American People in these Red States are fed up with the crap that these Repug Governors and State Legislatures have been doing.

The State that comes to mind is Texas. Abbott is going all out to be a major a**hole. Instead of using Texas taxpayers money to build a wall - he should be using the money to improve/upgrade their power grid. Haven't enough Texans died during the winter?

Same goes for that jerk of a Governor in Florida. He needs to be replaced.

The Dems need to methodically take back these States and turn the blue. The R's were able to achieve that. Look what they've accomplished. So it can be done - if the Dems make a concerted effort to do it.

1. Nope. They're doing nothing

Never trying to win anything. Just giving up and letting tyranny take over.

We flipped 7 governorships in 2018. That was HUGE.

Hopefully Stacey Abrams can kick KKKemp’s butt next year.

That’s one of the reasons KKKemp’s trying to suppress votes. He’s scared. He was able to steal the election in 2018, and he’ll do everything he can to do it again!

4. Beto is trying.

Beto hasn’t officially announced a run against ole Hot Wheels but I think it’s a given.

Beto’s been out every single day.

But when he runs, the Repukes will bring up the same old crap about him, and their idiot base will believe it and vote for the Republican.

5. I would believe they do have a strategy

even though we may not hear of it.

There's limited resources the party as a whole can spend, whether it money, personnel, etc. so I would think they're assessing where those resources are best used.

You brought up Texas, which may very well be on the party's radar. That's a tough call though. Abbott may very well be the worse of the worst, but we're also talking of a state that hasn't had a Democratic Governor since Ann Richards and a state legislature that may never have been Democrat controlled, so that's a hard sell.

But we've seen how well Beto O'Rourke did in his Senate bid, his increased visibility not only within the state but on the national level also. We've also seen Texas in the mix in the last Presidential election so maybe there is something there that makes Abbott vulnerable.

As we get closer to the mid-terms where some governorships would be up for re-election, we'll have a better idea who would be more vulnerable than others.
