Texas Republican Party's 2020 election strategy document lands in Democrats' hands

In a bizarre political blunder, a document laying out the Republican Party of Texas’s election strategy for the 2020 elections has ended up in the hands of Texas Democrats. Attacking Democratic candidates through websites and mitigating “the polarizing nature” of President Donald Trump are part of the plan.

The document — called a draft for initial discussion by the Texas GOP Party chair — was titled “Primary/General Election 2020 [Draft]” and began showing up in Democratic emails Monday evening.

It includes a target list of 12 statehouse districts, including six in North Texas, that Republicans are aiming to take back in next year’s elections. Negative attacks through websites, and highlighting diverse Republicans to counter a “narrative driven by Democrats” about the GOP’s lack of diversity are also part of the strategy.

Republican targets in North Texas are Dallas County Democratic Reps. Ana-Maria Ramos, Terry Meza, Rhetta Bowers, John Turner and Julie Johnson, as well as Denton County Rep. Michelle Beckley.

2. Somewhere in Texas GOP headquarters

Either Texas Democrats have a secret friend or some Texas Republican apparatchik has aspirations to go to Washington, DC and screw up on the national stage.

3. Interesting.

I like how TX GOPers realize they shot themselves in the foot when they eliminated straight-ticket voting.

I'm a little pissed the article didn't explain more about how/why the plans showed up in Democratic inboxes.

4. Juanita Jean-Barrel Meet Bottom

the Texas GOP has hired Karl Rove to save Texas from turning blue https://juanitajean.com/barrel-meet-bottom/

The Republican Party of Texas has hired a political consultant to form their plan for keeping Texas red.
It’s Karl Rove.

I didn’t even know he was still alive. I thought he died of a bad case of mean as hell.

Well, I’m girding up my loins and getting ready to beat Karl Rove. It’ll be fun!
