Republicans Must Make Significant Strides with Minorites to Keep Texas Red Long-Term

Beto O’Rourke’s run for U.S. Senate came 2.6 percentage points short of unseating Senator Ted Cruz last November. But while the close loss was disappointing to his supporters, the margin validated more than ever the narrative that Texas may soon be a purple, or even blue, state. In more sobering news for Democrats, Republican Governor Greg Abbott won his race by a hearty 13.3 points, proving, along with a Republican sweep of other statewide offices, that Texas still remains a Republican stronghold.
