Congratulations, Texas; despite a challenge from leftist jackass Master Beto O’Rourke, Ted Cruz is still your senator. Thank. Christ.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz fended off progressive sweetheart and Democratic challenger Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke on Tuesday by winning re-election to retain his seat as junior U.S. senator to the state of Texas.
Cruz and O’Rourke have been in a closely watched race since the El Paso congressman gained national attention after a video of him applauding NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem went viral, lavishing praise from the Hollywood elite and springboarding him onto the television circuit.
Regardless, Cruz has maintained a steady, albeit tightening, lead throughout the duration of their campaigns.
I sent an email to TXNick last night promising if Cruz lost, Kyle would not be attending the University of Dallas. I guess I can allow him to go there now.
Texas was not the only good news last night, as the GOP added seats in the Senate, and warts like Joe Donnelly, Heidi Heitkamp, Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson went down in flames. That said, the GOP lost the House of Representatives, and Nancy Pelosi will regain power.
One poll reported 50% of voters believed the country is going in the wrong direction. I mean, a booming economy and lower taxes used to be signs of success, but I guess those goalposts were moved.
So, we’re stuck with Democrat obstruction, impeachment hearings, and never-ending frivolous investigations. If you’re looking for someone to blame, look no further than our NeverTrump media friends. Scumbags like Jonah Goldberg, David French, Bill Kristol, Ben Shapiro, etc., etc.
