Here's a new one, wouldn't answer his phone so had to concede via voice message (The local newspaper couldn't get an interview either but nobody wants to hear media complain)

Speaking of O'Rourke, he's yet to make much of an impact in the mid-sized counties: Potter, Taylor, Gregg, Smith, all going to Cruz by wide margins. My home county of Wichita hasn't sent in any numbers yet

Kim Olson hanging in there against Sid Miller, though she's only winning urban counties counties/South Texas thus far. Wherever Beto is doing well, she's essentially mirroring it

West Texas/Panhandle is good about cutting off their noses to spite their faces. Expect to see more farmers/ranchers going bankrupt and rural healthcare system continue to crumble.

In West Texas/Panhandle news, GOP incumbents (e.g. Conaway, Arrington, Smithee, Burrows) are just crushing opponents

Kim Olson slightly up on ol' Sid at the moment. You can attribute a lot of that to Dallas County

Beto slightly ahead in Brewster County, which is FAR West Texas. Down in every other rural county that has returned numbers
