    Democrat Senate Candidate Rep. Beto O'Rourke might be a hit among the Lone Star State's recent liberal transplants, but jumping a plane to L.A. for a Hollywood fundraising gig is not a good look. And yet... Monday, Variety reported that Rep. O'Rourke was in L.A. "at the home of actress Nancy Stephens and director-producer Rick Rosenthal for an evening reception."

    Last week, I blogged about a poll published by Quinnipiac University. The poll showed the upcoming Texas Senate election as too close to call. Sen. Ted Cruz has a formidable opponent in Rep. Beto O'Rourke, but no one in Texas believes the poll is close to reality. That's not to say that running as a favored incumbent in a deep red state should be taken for granted though. We discussed that issue and more here.

    Ted Cruz's Democrat opponent Rep. Robert O'Rourke just put a serious damper on his bid for a seat in the Big House (not that there was any serious competition before). Speaking at South by Southwest in Austin, O'Rourke said he doesn't think AR-15s should be sold to private citizens. Mind you, this is a TEXAS Senate race and us Texans have big love for our guns and our second amendment protections.

    Today is a rough day to be a Texas Democrat. That blue wave we've heard about for months was more of a ripple. Months of wish casting, hoping, dreaming, pretending a blue wave was cresting in the Lone Star State, only to be clobbered by Republicans in voter turnout. Piece after piece was written about record Democrat turnout in early voting. The predictions had Texas Republicans rattled and Governor Abbott encouraging Republicans to get to the polls.

    Just when you thought CNN might make it through a week without disgracing itself, anchor Chris Cuomo accuses Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) of being "afraid" to talk to CNN about the Florida shooting and GOP measures to prevent such shootings.  The problem?  Cruz had given CNN a 15-minute interview the day before, and CNN decided not to air all of it. The Washington Free Beacon reports:
    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) admonished CNN's Chris Cuomo on Twitter after the anchor accused him of being afraid to appear on CNN in the wake of the Parkland, Fla. school shooting.

    What can you say about soon-to-be-former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie?  At one time, it seemed his star was rising, that he was destined for the White House.  That is the historical moment to which Christie apparently clings. Christie, who leaves office—and almost certainly any political future—on January 16th, believes that if President Trump had not run in 2016, he'd be president today.
