Honestly local Dallas city/county politics is probably one of the things I know least about in the world. I should probably work on fixing that but Its purposely convoluted.

Here it seems the county Judge Jenkins has more sway/gets more headlines than any other mayor, commissioner, elected official.

Beto and Kennedy both could have won had they professed progressive values instead of exposing their closet conservative tendencies.

Be it Beto on m4a or Kennedy on.. well anything.

Their losses may ultimately be the best thing to happen to progressives long term as a whole outside of the actual seat/policy gains.

Better they didnt hijack the mantle and centrify it. Markey has no reason not to vote to the left of Bernie.

Actually voters did do their “homework” That’s why Markey won.

So instead of a bold platform he should have gone negative sooner. His advisors will likely get new gigs… but I certainly wouldnt listen to a word they say

Marianne Williamson: Why I Spoke At People’s Party Convention

eve

Bernie Sanders “Fighting for Justice in Texas” Townhall, featuring progressive activists some running for office co-hosted by Beto O’Rourke who seems to be making an effort to align himself with what these people are fighting for which was not so clear to me before.
(Sorry if this has already been posted since it was recorded 5 days ago on August 29):

Thanks eve! the generational gap in texas combined with the incoming out of staters who move in because their corporations relocate headquarters for tax breaks will keep Texas orange for a while longer outside of any bold progressive agenda imo.

i was hopeful, too. and then he endorsed kennedy. weird. might be doing what so many dems do. try to appeal to the left by aligning themselves with true progressives in a wway that doesn’t commit them to any progressive policy.

we’ll see.

orlbucfan

Beto is married to a very wealthy woman so that affects his thinking.

So, Mr. High-yellow Raygun Yuppie now defines a ‘liberal’? Can I throw up now??
