He said "for now".

And Beto is the worst choice we can send up.

I mean, there are worse, but of mainstream choices, he can't win.

Not sure...I just know the guy who said, "Hell yes we're going to take your AR-15"
is going to lose.

Too bad. He would be Lincoln-like.

true... and I'm a big fan of the kid, but you can't
take a liberal position on gun control in a state like
Texas. Shows that he lacks understanding of his situation,
or that he is at least 'slightly nave'. Can't believe this
statement wasn't vetted/handled better. Obviously, his team
(if he has one) is as young and green as he is... Also a bad
sign.

McConnaughey conceivably could have won. Beto can't. A platform of confiscating firearms is an absolute non-starter. Especially in Texas.

You'd have to scrape the barrel for an outsider that hasn't put their foot in their mouth yet and led off with centrism.

Sitz: What a double standard. Abbott puts his foot in his mouth at every opportunity. Seems like only Dems running for office in Texas are not permitted to have done the same.

Meanwhile, in reality:

Despite all the rhetoric, Texas gun ownership rates just above national average (35.71%)

I'm sure the figures are a bit higher today, but long-term i think you are going to eventually see enough Texans fed-up with violence to overpower the gun freaks. Beto's just probably a bit too early.

That's not a double standard. That's a suggestion to bring a higher standard candidate.

Finally! A celebrity that can check his ego long enough to realize he'd be bad at this job.

That'd be an improvement over what we have now.
