1. This is why Texas will almost never go blue.

I think.

3. Texas will turn blue

The key race for 2022 will be Lt. Governor which has far more power than governor.

We picked up 12 seats in the house and have enough seats in the Senate to block Greg's nominee to be Sec. of State

2. Greg is not that rich personally but has raised a ton of money from the super rich

Greg was not challenged in 2018 seriously. The party worked hard to get one of the Castro brothers to run and now the Castros have far less stroke than before.

Greg cannot use this money directly himself but can use it to support candidates he likes.
