Ted has to be nervous.
Texas is a state that can go Democrat or Republican, and a 3 point lead is not reassuring this far out.
O’Rourke, btw, is way out there on the non-conventional sexual alphabet thing. From his issues page:
Supporting measures like the Equality Act, proposed legislation that would provide the same nondiscrimination protections to LGBTQIA Americans as any other protected class under federal law.And he leans Bernie Sanders-ish commie on healthcare:
Achieving universal healthcare coverage— whether it be through a single payer system, a dual system, or otherwise – so that we can ensure everyone is able to see a provider when it will do the most good and will deliver healthcare in the most affordable, effective way possible.And he is a central planner on education:
Invest in training, certification, and registered apprenticeship programs to allow Texans – especially those without college degrees – to keep pace with increasingly specialized professions.If you live in Texas and vote, you are going to have to hold your nose and vote for Ted. Think of it this way, at least it is not this Ted.
