Pretty big news and the 2020 thread is big enough as it is and mostly POTUS related.



Hurd is the only GOP Rep on the border, and is also anti-wall, but still votes with Trump most of the time. Also several other potential GOP retirements in Texas already

Time for Ann Wagner to hang it up. Why wouldn't she?

Hurd has criticized Trump in the past and was the only Republican on the House Intelligence Committee that asked Robert Mueller real questions. But he's said he's going to vote for Trump, so I don't consider him a profile in courage. Bob Corker told CNN he wasn't going to vote for Trump again, but he's been MIA since he left the Senate. Jeff Flake is a pundit on CBS now, but we haven't heard anything from him like his speeches on the Senate floor. John Kasich works for CNN, but he doesn't take on Trump head on. Mark Sanford has mentioned running against Trump, but he doesn't attack Trump like he should be attacked. Only Bill Weld is directly attacking Trump and he is being ignored.

Became a little familiar with Will Hurd from documentary "the River and the Wall". Seemed like a human being with intelligence, which is a compliment for GOPer. The physical wall is what he doesn't side with. I got the sense that any sort of scare or security thing came up he would be all-in with GOP fear mongering.

But, his GOP replacement will undoubtedly be worse. (He is going to be replaced by a GOPer, right,?)

The thought seems to be it's a likely Democratic pickup. He was nearly beaten last time, it's not that red of a district, Hurd at least comes off fairly moderate already, Texas getting bluer, etc...

Of course, predictions are a bad idea.

I believe the woman who ran against him last time is running again, right?

Yep.


Not sure conservatives are going to be able to pull off that while “Democrats were for slavery” schtick they’ve been trying lately.

Clearly overestimating how many people in Arizona give a [expletive] about the D'Backs.
