Votes for Senator are similarly lopsided.

No wonder we're suddenly hearing nothing more about it in the "news".

The Dems have gone further and further to the right. They will be cutting your SS and Medicare next. And the disabled will suffer too. You just think they are moving to the left because they dont care about economic issues anymore.

More like a disillusioned wave. Voter turnout is absolutely pathetic for a developed democracy. Its a typical sign of plutocracy, rule by wealth. People just give up and tune out, feeling the system is so stacked against ordinary workers its impossible to bring change to a system run by Wall Street, big pharma and the ruling elites.

Default Slander season is upon us.

Primaries in Texas have been closely guarded, small turnout affairs. The people who run Texas don't want you to know about them unless you're old, white and live outside of a big city. Unfortunately for them, other people can and do vote, despite Republicans' attempts to suppress voting in Texas.

Considering that Democratic turnout has been in the cellar lately, it increased enormously yesterday. Might be less than the Republican primary rubber-stampers returning all their favorite loons to Austin and Washington, but a lot more people will vote Democratic come November. Republican strategists know this; so watch as the lying begins. It is well funded.
