After Doug Jones’ historic upset in the special Senate election in Alabama, what other red states might the Democrats be targeting? Could Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) Senate seat really be up for grabs? Probably not, but if it is, it’d be an uphill battle for any challenger.
El Paso Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) officially announced that he will indeed run against the Republican incumbent come 2018. According to The Hill, O’Rourke made the announcement last March. Democrats gained some wind under their wings after the Doug Jones upset in Alabama, but will their momentum come to a screeching halt in the state of Texas?
Many are counting on the same upset to occur in the deep red state given Cruz’s approval ratings haven’t exactly been stellar for whatever reason.
