A Texas Republican, perhaps a cyclist — we do not know, who was impersonating a representative of the people, has just found himself embroiled in a gang of ludicrously incompetent politicians. These Republicans are at war with the Democrats in Washington, D.C. and throughout the nation. Certainly, the Dems are more capable. Let’s at this gang who could not shoot straight.
The Republicans in Texas made a really big mistake. Somehow, their “blueprint for winning 2020 elections and plans to mitigate” Trump’s “polarizing nature” went awry. Someone carelessly sent them to a very wrong place.
It appeared that this Texas GOP party accidentally sent an email to high-level Democrats’ inboxes. It included plans for their primary and general elections. Not only that, they included 12 statehouse districts they want to target with negative ads prior to the next presidential election in 2020.
According to The Dallas Morning News, the email offered an “internal strategy” with advice about counterbalancing the Democrats’ narrative. It also gave them advice about the Republicans’ white bread Congress and a timeline for unfurling a list of website antithetical to specific Democratic contenders.
It seems, the GOP has been well aware of how unpopular the president is with the middle-grounders. Chairman of the Texas GOP James Dickey said in an interview with the Dallas newspaper that:
‘[A staffer] drafted some initial thoughts for discussion.’
There appears to be a very good possibility that the Texas Dems might take over their state’s House for the first time since 2003. These Democrats took 12 seats in the 2018 midterm elections. They still have quite a way to go to reach a majority 67 to GOP’s 83, but that goal is well within sight:
‘Starting after the Primary, the RPT will generate microsites for negative hits against the Democrat candidates in our twelve target race—we expect each microsite to be roughly $500. We will then begin rolling out these websites, prioritizing the races that were within 4% in the 2018 election.’
Executive Director of the Texas Democratic Party Manny Garcia released a statement on Tuesday. It read:
‘Republicans have already fumbled the ball and we aren’t even in 2020 yet. They know they’re in deep trouble ‘given the polarizing nature of the President and expect “Republicans will refuse to turnout during the General Election because they don’t want to vote for him.” The Texas Republican Party is desperate.’
Texas has been so large that textbook publishers send their books to a Texas State Education panel for review. Unfortunately, ultra-conservative Republicans have overtaken Democrats there. Garcia continued:
‘Texas is the biggest battleground state and Texas Democrats are poised to win in 2020.’
The GOP chair tried to put a good face on the situation:
‘We are doing that so we continue to dominate in 2020 just like we have for 25 years in Texas.’
The Dallas News reported:this was just the latest “bizarre political blunder:”
‘Even Texas Democrats have not been immune to scandals over the past several weeks. Earlier this month, State Rep. Poncho Nevárez, of Eagle Pass, turned himself into law enforcement on felony drug possession charges after he left an envelope of cocaine at the Austin airport.’
