How long until the corporatist Dems string him up and bleed him out like Bernie?

The victory over Ted Cruz is too strategically important. They'll just neuter him once he's in office.

THe DNC can't find its own ass in the dark. They will let him do his own thing in the hopes the Blue Wave gives him a victory, then the day after the election brag that it was all their doing.

The Texas Democrats are on fire right now. Its almost like the state party said Fuck you, we want to win. and started fielding candidates with a shot at winning and even more talk of more winning

The fight is not over, and a lot can change in 130 days. Beto has a shot as long as he is a decent human being and fights in every city and county. Demographics and culture are still in flux, but it warms my cold dead black heart to see some fight in Texas of all places. Now to work on some of these other red state backwaters.
