2. But...

Abbott wouldn't be able to "run" into a school to take on a school shooter though.

3. I'm convinced, but harder to prove here

Texas is such a non-voting state that it can be hard to pin down interference. Republican control is out of all proportion to their numbers because of a faithful and dedicated voter base that turns out every election no matter how seemingly inconsequential. Until Democrats can begin to match that, we will be hard-pressed to make any kind of case for foreign influence. Just my opinion.

4. It's OK if it helps Republicans. Holding onto power is more important than

National security or even the concept of democracy.

Power. Is. Everything. No matter how fleeting.

5. The GOP knows that Texas' demographics are against them

The Texas GOP hopes to delay Texas turning blue with voter suppression such as voter id and the most restrictive voter registration law in the country We are fighting back

I will be in the Harris County Democratic Party war room on primary day

6. I guess, gerrymandering, vote rigging and voter suppression isn't enough for the repukes...

which just goes to show me, if we had an actual fair election in this state, no repuke would ever get elected ever again.
