O'Rourke defends gun control stance in Texas Senate race

Chris Peri (TX-25), a criminal defense attorney, came in first but faces a runoff.

In 2002, when Democrats set their record for midterm primary turnout, they failed to flip a single congressional seat in the general election.

Cruz argued in an interview on "New Day" earlier Wednesday that O'Rourke can not win in Texas with his pro-gun control stances.

But the abundance of volunteers also comes with a reality check: The crowded primaries are giving the party's ideological divide a full public airing and could give party leaders less control over who carries the mantle in November. Many Republicans say they want to show their steadfast support for President Donald Trump.

"Just any blue won't do", says Nina Tuner, a former OH legislator who leads Our Revolution, the spinoff of Sen. Republicans cast a little more than 56% of the primary votes to the Democrats' 44%.

The other Democratic bills would ban a person who has been deemed an "extreme risk protection order" by a court or a person who has been convicted of domestic violence from purchasing a firearm. Even in Democratic strongholds, where partisan control isn't at play, the battles will help determine the direction of the party. Tuesday's primary in deep-red Texas did not definitively prove they can't do it.

Texas has a record eight open congressional races this year, including two now held by entrenched Republicans who opted against re-election amid scandal.

But in the House, Democrats are targeting five seats, including one open seat and four held by Republicans. The DCCC, which focuses on electing Democrats to the House, has such research on its website against just two people: Moser and a Republican running in a Pennsylvania special congressional election next week. The candidate, Daniel Biss, has been endorsed by Our Revolution, the political organization spun off of Sanders' 2016 presidential campaign.

For her part, Moser turned the flap into a television ad blasting Washington for meddling.

A surge in Democratic voters. It appears Craddick will face Roman McAllen who is now leading Chris Spellmon by a 59-41 margin. The top two vote-getters will advance to a runoff election on May 22, 2018.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein's re-election attempt has stirred passions in California, with rank-and-file party liberals assailing the 26-year incumbent as too moderate. The party is seriously targeting about a half-dozen Republican-held seats, with multiple Democrats running for each. This is the seat now held by retiring Rep. Lamar Smith, a Republican and chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee.

And in Republican Rep.

Texas Democrats haven't won a statewide race since 1994.

"If you're gonna run in Texas, you can't be a liberal man", the song says.

"We believe overwhelmingly the American people will prefer building infrastructure and creating close to 15 million middle-class jobs than giving tax breaks for the wealthy", he said. Perriello lost the Democratic nomination to Ralph Northam, viewed as the more moderate choice.

For Republicans, the primary was a vivid exhibition of the Trump effect in GOP politics. Two former state lawmakers — Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans — aren't that far apart ideologically, but they have obviously different campaign approaches that reflects the national party's internal debate over identity and strategy.

In the Texas 7th, one of Moser's opponents agrees.

"We have candidates everywhere, and that means we are reaching voters who haven't heard from Democrats in a long time", Texas Democratic Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa told the Associated Press.
