Tarrant County GOP, just a reminder, Beto carried the county, you lost a senate seat, and nearly lost a few house seats. It’s hard to imagine why. So embarrassing.

It's kind of both: Rural Texas gave Ted Cruz the edge he needed to win, but Beto made small gains in rural parts of the state. He did notably well in Lubbock, fwiw.

The GOP activist behind this blatantly bigoted push is a former elected member of the Republican Party of Texas’ Executive Committee who has a long record of promoting racist, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic content, including Stormfront, the white supremacist site.

We should've been a little more precise with our language, but Chris was referring to HD 136, HD 52 and HD 47 — districts in the Austin area that "were intended to remain the permanent possession of the Republican Party" through redistricting efforts.

I would not be that sanguine. Cornyn is more of a generic R and I think the results this year show a generic R can be beaten in Texas with the right circumstances/candidates. Take a look at how close some of the statewides came.

I should've said better *top-of-the-ballot* candidates, Beto and one or two other excluded, of course

The list of voters who turned out for Beto is an extremely valuable asset.
