Virtually every @ColinAllredTX yard sign I see has a @BetoORourke yard sign next to it. Not a single one of the Pete Sessions signs I’ve seen around town has had a Ted Cruz sign next to it. People really dislike Ted Cruz. Even those who vote for him! (1/x)
This made me want to refresh my memory about 2012. Ted Cruz ran against David Dewhurst in the GOP primary, the “real” election of 2012 Texas. Dewhurst received the most votes, but not over 50%. (2/x)
In the runoff, only 8.5% of eligible voters voted, and the lower the turnout, the more ideologically extreme the voters tend to be. Cruz got 57% of the vote. (3/x)
Anyway, that’s how Texas was saddled with Ted Cruz as a senator, even though he has the charisma of a wet gym sock — thanks to a choice made by 4% of the state’s eligible voting population. So you should vote. For real. #BetoforTexas (4/4)
