Texas Senate Betting: A race to define 2018 and beyond

O’Rourke Chances Lurks in early gamble

When the market opened, Cruz was matched at just 1.15. Ever since, as news of this O’Rourke effort has travelled and speculation of a Blue Wave has grown, the incumbent is out to 1.40.

It has to be mentioned that Democrats have been overhyping their opportunities in Texas for ages. It remains merely a long-term target, based on a growing Hispanic population and progressively more liberal cities. So far, the breakthrough hasn’t come near materialising, particularly due to the continuing liberal weakness – reduced registration and turnout.

In any normal era, with less famous candidates, the Republican are a shoo-in. However this year and this pair may differ. If prospective Democrats can not be motivated to register and vote this timethey never will.

First. The telegenic 45-year-old Congressman was creating a stir for months, with his relentless, enthusiatic campaigning and unapologetic liberalism. He has seen every county in Texas.

When he pulls off the upset, it will alter the way campaigns operate and by extension, the political dialog.

Whether that is sufficient to swing a deep Red state remains questionable but O’Rourke may have been lucky in his or her opponent. Cruz is marmite. He creates the fiercest of resistance from liberals, but also plenty of independents and even Republicans. White House advisers are allegedly fretting about conquer, because their man isn’t’likeable’.
