Until very recently, the state of Texas was in many ways considered to be the red answer to California. The idea of a Democrat winning any state-wide election was almost a joke. This is no longer the case.
Senator Ted Cruz just barely retained his seat when he defeated Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke. Sure, the fact that the mainstream media fawned over the skateboarding, guitar-playing leftist probably had a lot to do with this, but this is still Texas we’re talking about, right?
Even with cities like Austin, Houston, Dallas, and others having a long streak of sending Democrats to local offices, red counties far outnumbered blue counties. But after looking at the election map tweeted out by conservative broadcaster Rush Limbaugh, it may no longer accurate to label Texas as a “red state.”
Based on what we’re seeing here, Texas is purple. And the reason why is simple: the demographics in the state are changing, and they’re changing very quickly. How on Earth could that have happened, and why are all of these new blue districts located right along the U.S.-Mexican border?
It’s almost as if people are hopping the fence and voting for Democrats…or something.
