Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had misstated the case for Beto in my original post. The last two years of the Trump presidency certainly seemed like an eternity, but the O'Rourke/Cruz contest was in 2018 and Beto would have to wait until 2024 to again run against Cruz.  He may do just that, but many are encouraging him to run against Governor Greg Abbot in '22 instead. Then he could be Governor during the '24 election and both help to see that the '24 election is fair, although he would need both houses of the legislature to ensure that, and could be well positioned for a national run in '28 either against Senator John Cornyn or for the Presidency. Sorry for the confusion.
