What to watch in Tuesday's Texas primary

Democratic Party Establishment, It's Time to Respect Insurgent Progressives Correction: Democrats-2018-Glance Story

"Primaries and especially "specials" tell us which voters are paying attention and motivated enough to turn out", said Rick Tyler, a Republican strategist in Washington who worked on Texas Senator Ted Cruz's 2016 campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

Kennedy embodies the ideals that Democrats stand for, the passionate conviction that, here on earth, God's work must truly be our own, that a rising tide should lift ALL economic boats and the notion of patriotic citizenship in which individual Americans take action to make the country as a whole a better place.

For the first time in a quarter of a century in Texas, there's a Democrat running for all 36 congressional seats.

Surges among Democrats could depend on minority and young voter turnout, which tends to be low in midterm elections, but the results from Tuesday night could give a sense of the level of engagement we can expect from so-called resistance voters come November.

House Democrats have targeted 10 seats held by Republicans for takeover, including seven in North Texas.

More than 50 women are running for Congress in Texas. Moser, who has the backing of Our Revolution, Sen. That would nearly certainly mean victories in Congress and elsewhere.

There is still a slim chance that lawmakers act to solve the DACA fix before it's too late-both for Dreamers and the jeopardized Republican majority.

"The thing that drives turnout, largely, is how many contested races there are", he said. Bernie Sanders' political organization, endorsed her in the wake of the DCCC memo. In a neighboring Chicago district, Jesus "Chuy" Garcia is trying for another promotion after losing the 2015 mayor's race against Rahm Emanuel. While he refused to recuse himself in this suit, he did recuse himself for another-albeit smaller-scale-lawsuit related to the upcoming primary, stating he could not be impartial because of the people involved.

In the Senate race in Texas, neither Republican incumbent Cruz nor Democratic Representative Beto O'Rourke face serious primary opposition. However, voters can not cross party lines to vote in a runoff. "That means curbing climate change and giving more people healthcare and investing in our city so our houses don't get washed away every year". One establishment favorite is Richard Cordray, who ran the federal consumer protection agency launched under President Barack Obama.

Two legislative races for Republican incumbents hoping to keep their party's nomination have become the ones to watch in Denton County. Republican Gov. John Kasich is term limited.

O'Rourke's also taken an interesting strategy to campaigning. "This time there were 1,300 more Democrats than Republicans that voted".

O'Rourke is campaigning the old way - driving from town to town - even to Republican strongholds - holding rallies, talking to whoever will listen, constantly recruiting volunteers - even taking early-morning jogs with current and prospective supporters.

The senator's name strength with independents and even moderate Republicans should ensure at least a runoff spot - though that could still set up a two-candidate battle with de Leon.

This is the first gubernatorial race in 20 years where there are competitive primaries on both sides.

One of the leading lights for Democrats ready to seize the moment is Rep. Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.), who is emerging as an important national leader with a political future that knows no limits. Darrell Issa and Ed Royce are retiring, while Reps. In Virginia, where the governor's seat was up for grabs along with the the House of Delegates and other statewide and municipal offices last November, the Latino turnout was up 6 percentage points, according to analysis by the Virginia Public Access Project.
