Texas Democrats are sorting out what to do next after last week's midterm elections. Gov. Greg Abbott thumped Beto O'Rourke by 11 percentage points, and every other statewide Democratic candidate also lost by double-digits. A Democratic Party official blamed the losses on historic midterm trends, voting restrictions enacted by last year's GOP legislature, GOP-friendly redistricting, lack of investment in Texas by national Democrats, and huge amounts of GOP funding. Democrats also acknowledge they failed to get enough voters to the polls or respond effectively to the GOP's message about the economy and the border.
