Wall Builds Name ID

"A man’s heart plans his way,
But the Lord directs his steps."
Proverbs 16:9

CD-22 GOP runoff candidate Kathleen Wall has a new ad out:

The ad itself is whatever. Way too Trump humpy for our tastes. But it's certainly factually accurate.

That being said, we find the degree to which it's gotten people talking to be very interesting.

Texas Scorecard:


The Trib:

As a general matter, voters are ignorant about down ballot runoffs.  Anything one can do to get people talking (within certain obvious limits) is generally good.  That's even truer under current...unique...circumstances.

That being said, we do find this quote from the Democrat candidate astounding:
"Irresponsible, race-baiting comments like these from Kathaleen Wall are unacceptable and dangerous to TX-22’s large Asian American and Pacific Islander population, who are intimately aware of the FBI warning about the recent surge of hate crimes against their community," Democratic nominee Sri Preston Kulkarni said in a statement.
Ok dude.

If this Sri Kularni character wants to argue that it's somehow racist to point out that this virus originated in China...well...good luck with that.

Bottom Line: In a low-profile runoff, anything that can get people talking about you has got to be considered a win.
