Democrats face a daunting challenge in their bid to unseat Texas Governor, Greg Abbot – however, democrats are preparing to use every advantage they can muster, including massive Soros cash infusions, and by encouraging the illegal alien vote.
In a recent op-ed in the Washington Examiner, Gov. Greg Abbott ran through the Democrat’s plans to unseat him, and what Texans, and indeed all Americans need to do in order to keep Texas red.
“Democrats in Washington, D.C. are plotting to pour hundreds of millions of dollars in state and local elections across the country.”
Abbott further wrote, “Still reeling from nearly a decade of devastating losses in statehouses across the nation as well as in the 2016 presidential election, Democrats in Washington, D.C. are plotting to pour hundreds of millions of dollars in state and local elections across the country.”
“With the help of hedge fund billionaire George Soros, the National Democratic Redistricting Committee hopes to wrest control from voters of congressional re-districting in 2021 when booming conservative states such as Texas will gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. All for the benefit of their special-interest donors.”
In an answer to Greg Abbott, Matt Angle, founder and director of the Lone Star Project, a Texas Democratic research and communications organization struck back, arguing, “It’s disorienting for Texans that our current Republican Gov. Greg Abbott projects such a fearful, passive-aggressive profile. Abbott’s recent Washington Examiner op-ed is the latest example of a nervous governor raising irrational fears and ringing false alarms to hide his own shortcomings.” And that, “Those of us in Texas working to rebuild Democratic political strength and bring balance and responsibility to our state’s leadership find Abbott’s panicky pander laughable. We know firsthand that nationally-based ideologically-left organizations pay little attention to Texas, invest even less financially, and have virtually no influence with Texas leaders. Abbott knows it too.”
“No state’s citizens have more pride, a stronger sense of identity, or more deeply imbedded confidence than Texans. We generally handle problems by meeting them head-on and honestly” he concluded.
However, it’s not all hysteria. Texas demographer, Lloyd Potter noted that Texans are increasingly moving to large cities – the most liberal places in Texas. “The cities and the counties that are growing fast, they basically can’t build roads fast enough and can’t build schools fast enough and can’t build the infrastructure they need.”
It has been further highlighted by The Hill that “most of the state’s population lives in a triangle between San Antonio, Dallas and Houston.” And that “Abbott has yet to draw a serious Democratic challenger. Sen. Ted Cruz (R) has a credible rival in Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D), but other prominent Democrats — including Rep. Joaquin Castro (D), former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Rafael Anchia and a handful of others — have decided against statewide races.
Several months ago, some of the biggest donors to Texas Democratic candidates sat down with the Castros, Anchia and former Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D). One donor pledged to write a $1 million check if he saw a plan that could get a Democratic candidate to the 50 percent threshold necessary to win. The check remains unwritten.”
