If you haven't seen Beto's incendiary "concession" speech, please watch it it here. I am sure that race does not have to be over, giving the egregious vote flipping that went on all over Texas.

Please take the time to read this article, posted almost in full at the end of this article by me:

For Rob Kall, in response to your article:

Lots of great things will come about in the meantime, leading up to 2020. Dozens of House investigations, a standstill for DT's legislative agenda, some actions by rising stars in the newly elected, particularly the women of color (especially Lucy McBath, a gun legislation star who decided to come out of retirement after her son Jordan was killed in yet another freak shooting!), etc.

I am so glad you keep hammering on the super-delegate BS. Who really has power to reshape the DNC (except by internal changes due to pressure from the nationwide Democrats)? Certainly don't expect any miraculous actions from the DCCC, whose star is nonetheless now rising, obviously.

I am very optimistic, as well, because the NRA has to be voted down. Ted Cruz, I recall reading, is among the larger recent recipients of NRA contributions in the Congress.
