One of the great Democrat dreams is “turning Texas blue.” So far, the closest they’ve come was convincing the state to rely on windmills for energy when a historic arctic snowstorm froze their turbines and caused a massive blackout. That turned Texas blue! And if this past weekend is any indication, that may be as close as they’ll ever come.
Saturday, there were local elections across the Lone Star State, and Texans made it clear that they’ve seen why so many blue staters are moving in, and they want nothing to do with the policies that brought them there. Here are a few of the most notable election results:
Lubbock, TX — “Sanctuary City for the Unborn”
Voters made Lubbock the 23rd Texas city to declare itself a “sanctuary city for the unborn,” declaring abortion murder and outlawing it at every stage. (There are also two such cities in Nebraska.) This is significant because Lubbock is the only city that already had an active abortion provider, a Planned Parenthood clinic that just started offering abortions last month.
Hit That Sad Trombone Sound
In a special election, voters in the 6th Congressional District (south of Dallas plus some of the DFW mid-cities) chose a replacement for Republican Rep. Ron Wright, who died of COVID-19 in February. With a number of Republicans splitting the vote, Democrats hoped to get into the runoff and pick up the seat. But Wright’s widow, Susan Wright, came in first, with an endorsement from former President Trump helping overcome a slanderous robocall campaign against her.
And in second place was State Rep. Jake Ellzey, who will face Wright in a run-off. The highest any Democrat came in was third. Hit that sad trombone sound!
