Haven’t really been following the Texas race, but is this really even a possibility? I mean I could maybe buy it if the donors cut off Cruz, but since the '16 election he’s done a complete 180 and is doing pretty much whatever McConnell and Senate leadership wants, plus he’s been sucking up to Trump every chance he’s gotten.
First, you didn’t mention Mulvaney also said this:
“There’s a very real possibility we will win a race for Senate in Florida and lose a race in Texas for Senate, O.K.?” Mr. Mulvaney said. “I don’t think it’s likely, but it’s a possibility. How likable is a candidate? That still counts.”
He didn’t say it’s likely, only possible. Doesn’t hurt that Beto is getting tons of free publicity, and mostly fawning attention from most media.
Could Cruz lose? Not impossible, but not likely either.
The NJ senate race is also competitive, but I think in the end Menendez will win again.
Now this poll may be an outlier, and I’d be shocked if Newsom lost. But once again, most of the media does not give a ■■■■■ You won’t see a story on CNN speculating that maybe the D is in trouble there.
Anie was far from a conservative. Don’t know about Cox though. And Menendez certainly does have baggage.
You seem shocked though that a guy who has raised millions from out of state, and who has received overwhelmingly favorable media coverage, could be competitive in a red state? I’d be surprised if it wasn’t close.
Once Texas voters realize what a leftist he is, I’ am sure Cruz will be reelected.
Literally the title of the thread is “could lose.” That’s exactly what OP started the thread to discuss-whether it’s POSSIBLE Cruz could lose-so you’re sort of arguing a point no one is arguing against.
Doesn’t hurt that Cruz has become a groveling hypocrite who is going after this Beto fellow pretty personally.
The NJ race is competitive, but Menendez is still polling right at the high end of the margin of error.
I don’t think Cruz will lose either, but a former presidential candidate, who had a pretty major feud with the now sitting president, who SHOULD win that seat by 15+ points, in a neck and neck heat with a dude raising a lot of money, is a pretty major story.
You literally explained above the link you posted WHY one is getting more attention than the other, but then drop the partisan turd of “the media is an arm of the DNC.”
In one of the races, the opponent is raising gobs of cash, is facing off against a dude who used to have the balls to stand up to Trump but now kisses the ring, has consistent and recent polling, while the other has like…two polls since May.
But they’re definitely covering one more because of political bias
