I like to imagine the KrassenBros sitting in the same room, staring at Twitter waiting for their Trump tweet alert to go off — and when it does it’s like that South Park World of Warcraft episode

The PAC for corporate PACs -- yes, that's a thing -- is trying to clean up corporate PACs' image. Oh, and also raise their contribution limits!

This is fake news; I picked Beto down by 3. That's just what my gut told me after talking to thousands of real Texans at diners, gas stations, wild hog hunts, and Friday night fish fries

Unions can take a victory lap on Walker and Rauner going down. But the reality is those two systemically weakened the labor movement in ways that can’t really be undone

Here's a comparison between Hillary Clinton 2016 (red) & Beto O'Rourke (blue) this year. O'Rourke did about 6% better. Other than rural Donley County, his biggest gains were in Williamson & Hays Counties (Austin area). He did worse across the Rio Grande Valley.

In care you're curious, 's strongest county relative to Clinton was tiny Donley County, way up in the panhandle, pop. 3,311. He ran 13.9% ahead of Clinton there. It's heavily GOP. Coincidentally (or not), Beto spoke about meeting a voter there way back in January.

For instance, out in the Hill Country there was a bit of speculation that Beto was gaining ground. But nada. Panhandle? Nope. Same with East TX, where he spent a fair amount of time.

Going back to this. I'm hard-pressed to find a single rural county where Beto outperformed Clinton. What yesterday shows is cities and burbs can get you very close, but it's *really* hard if you can't make inroads in the rest of the state.

For years the House Science Committee has been led by Rep. Lamar Smith, who once accused NOAA scientists of fabricating climate change data. With the Dems in control of the House, the committee will now be chaired by Texan Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson.

I’ll tell ya, called it: she told me she was confident that Beto would easily win Hays County — and she could win too if she knocked enough doors
