Opposition to critical race theory is pretty much a unifying issue for conservatives at this point. That’s bad news if Rs start paying attention to school board races and stop ceding them by default, even in red areas.
Southlake gave Trump 2/3rds of the vote. The fact these policies were even considered is a pretty good indication that Republican voters simply did not care about school board races until now.
The county I live in (Alexander County, NC) is a Trump+50 county in rural NC. The school board decided not to shift to fully open schools.

Republicans here are furious… but they voted for this by either skipping the race or voting for incumbents.

I think one thing this election has shown is that people need to stop treating minority conservatives like jokes and start taking them seriously. The Republican Party is becoming more diverse, just like the country, and it’s wrong to dismiss minority conservatives as tokens.
Maria Elvira Salazar deserved to be treated better. John James deserved to be treated better. Young Kim deserved to be treated better. Their campaigns were either ignored or downplayed the whole race.
I don't think that's fair especially given how much press people like Amy McGrath or MJ Hegar got.

Quite possibly the dumbest of all gun control policy proposals.

According to the NRA, there are between 8.5 and 15 million "assault weapons" in the United States. Other estimates range from 10 to 20 million. I'll pick 10 as a conservative guess.

An entry-level AR-15 costs around $650. Let's assume the government "buys back" all assault rifles at this cost. That's a total of $65 billion for this "buyback", assuming 100% compliance and that each rifle is bought at that cost.
Now, how many lives would this save? According to the FBI, out of the 15,070 murdered in the US in 2016, 11,004 (73%) were murdered with firearms. Rifle murders accounted for 374 of those deaths - 2.5% of all murders, 3.3% of gun murders. ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u…
