Democrats, women candidates score big in Texas primaries

Democrats, women candidates score big in Texas primaries

Originally (and properly) understood as awful for Democrats, who hold 26 of the 35 seats up in November (or now 26 of 36 if you add in Mississippi's special election), the landscape at first offered Republicans hopes of gaining a filibuster-proof 60 seats, particularly after Donald Trump carried ten states with Democratic senators facing voters in 2018.

State figures show that more than 1 million Democrats cast votes in primary races across the state on Tuesday, nearly twice as many as in 2014, the last time primaries were held for a midterm election. Republicans also set a new non-presidential year primary turnout record, exceeding 1.5 million votes Tuesday.

In Issa's longtime district, Oceanside Assemblyman Rocky Chavez and state Board of Equalization member Diane Harkey are strong Republican candidates, running 2-3 in a February poll behind Democrat Doug Allen, who came within less than 1 percent of beating Issa in 2016. In the poll for Axios, Survey Monkey looked at 10 races where Democratic incumbents are fighting to retain their seats in states won by President Trump in 2016.

But Republicans now show signs of smartening up to one basic law of the jungle primary - when too many candidates from one party run, they can splinter their supporters' vote so much that none of them makes the runoff. Another is a sprawling district that runs along the Texas-Mexico border, where Gina Ortiz-Jones advanced to a May runoff and another woman, Judy Canales, was battling to join her.

While 2002 was a high water mark for Democratic turnout in Texas it also showed the limits of the exuberance for turning the state blue.

The plan makes several tweaks and adds more than $750 million in net spending to the current $43.7 billion two-year state budget that was adopted last summer. That was former Sacramento-area Congressman Doug Ose, who entered the race late and never drew many campaign donations or decent poll numbers. "This enthusiasm gap in favor of Democrats suggests several House seats now held by Republicans could be in play".

Was President Trump a factor in the Texas primary?

Two states gave Trump approval ratings over 60 percent: Wyoming at 64 percent, vs. 32 percent who disapproved, and Alabama at 61 percent, against 35 percent who disapproved. She said the number of women running for office this year reminds her of the surge of women candidates in 1992 in the aftermath of the Anita Hill testimony during Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas. She compared herself to President Donald Trump, did no media interviews and spent $6 million of her own money to get 12,000 votes, enough to move toward a runoff later this spring. Even Attorney General Ken Paxton, who has been indicted on felony securities fraud charges, remains favored for re-election.
