Michael Quinn Sullivan's perfect description of #TXLEGE state of play


"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;
But when a wicked man rules, the people groan."
Proverbs 29:2

The other day, Michael Quinn Sullivan gave his take on the #TXLEGE runoffs.  His two cents largely mirror our own.  That being said, he penned a half sentence that put into words a sentiment we've felt towards Team Straus for several years but have never been able to put into words:
[Team Straus is] also losing a war of attrition.

[Author's Note: Emphasis added.]
Boom.

That's EXACTLY what this is....

As long as we stay in the fight, we win in the end; we just don't know when that end ultimately materializes.

  1. MQS makes one error. Straus spent $4.7 million 8 days before the election. He was spending $1 million per week the last 3 weeks when polls showed he was going into a runoff with me. When the final report comes out July 15th, he may be closer to $6 million spent. At the lower figure, he already spent $310/vote. Remember, HD 121 is entirely confined to one county and one media market.
