#tx2020: Status Quo (in the short term)

"For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry."
Habakkuk 2:3

To summarize:
  • Trump wins Texas comfortably.
  • Cornyn wins even bigger.
  • Partisan split of Congressional Delegation and Texas house remain identical.
  • D's gain Senate seat they were widely expected to narrower than expected margin.
  • D's finally gain SBOE seat that was drawn to elect a Democrat ten years ago, that they'd previously blown twice.
None of this is surprising.

In terms of basic partisanship, there's a lot of reasons to be bullish if you're a Republican. Managed properly, conservatives should benefit as well. More in due time.

But Texas is going to remain an R+10 state for the forseeable future.

Bottom Line: There was never a good reason to believe otherwise, but the question has been answered.
