Democrats have been salivating for months over the prospects of Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) defeating Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in this year’s November midterms.
At last count, O’Rourke’s candidacy had spawned nearly 40,000 words in glowing profiles of the Democrat. A Democrat has not won statewide election in Texas since 1994, the first year George W. Bush was elected governor of the Lone Star State.
In short, Democrats want this bad.
O’Rourke has not led in a single poll of the Texas Senate race, but a series of polls in late summer showed the challenger within a few percentage points of Cruz. That as all the excuse Democrats needed to get their hopes up for a shocking upset.
