I have not been able to find out, did we win Texas house and Senate overall?
Senate no. House, maybe.
I think he was asking about the TEXAS House and Senate:

:iagree: Voting machines not working all over the country, including in Texas. The attempted steal is ongoing....
There is no question that election stealing has been going on for a long long time and that in 2020 it went off the charts to new levels. I expect the criminals to continue stealing as much as they can, as long as they can, until they are stopped.

Prayers go to the good people of Pennsylvania who just got robbed.
The people of Pennsylvania did not get robbed. They opened the door and pulled the freakshow in.
And this is what comes when the GOP runs idiots like Oz. Well, Pennsylvanians are about to discover what kind of Lurch they elected. May God help them by making it so plainly obvious that they’ll have a nice red wave of their own the next time around.
Approximately 50% of Pennsylvanians only concern is that there is a warm "D" body capable of voting with the party. Fetterman's inability to speak or think coherently isn't an issue apparently.
As for Oz, when the best candidate the Repukicans can put forward is a TV personality Muslim then they get what they deserve.

I can't believe that Whitmer and and Hochul won. Next time I see video of New Yorkers being raped, robbed and killed, I'll have a lot less sympathy. They had a chance.
Some commentator last night wondered how many potential R votes had moved to Florida and other parts, and if it affected the election.

It is shocking, but I wonder how much was election fraud. I assume the Dems stole every race that was within 3% with their electronic voting tabulation tampering scheme. IIRC there were also over 20 million mail in ballots nationwide... and 2000 Mules shows there is a paid army of Mules to rig those. Data from True the Vote suggests than Non-profits spent literally billions dollars during the last election to rig the 2020 results... and not all of it was Zuck Bucks.

There are some who don't even care if it's a warm body. Both PA and TN elected democrats to their respective state houses who were dead before the election.

Pennsylvania Voters Reelect Dead Democrat State Representative

That is pretty disgraceful.

54% of the Harris County votes went for Beto.

That carried down the ballot for the other statewide races.

It then extended to all the Democratic Judges and the County Judge.

The Republicans had the support of the Sheriff’s office and the local police due to the Democratic judges letting everyone out without bail.

Local Houston celebrity “Mattress Mac” heavily campaigned on TV for the Republican local races.

Today in his victory speech Brandon promised to ban assault weapons.

We should have ruined their primaries. Then, you don't get to vote in your R run offs, but that's a small price it seems.

I think we have it confirmed now that the Republicans will have 50 seats in the senate, with two races to still be decided. Most people are claiming the race in Alaska as too close to call, but are not aware or are ignoring the fact that the top two vote-getters are both Republicans. The only question is if Murkowski will keep her seat or be tossed out for a more conservative Republican. I think, based on how ranked choice voting works, the deciding factor will be whether the Democratic voters preferred Murkowski more than Tshibaka. My gut feeling is that they feel Murkowski is more moderate and will support her, getting her over the 50% mark.

Fauxnews still shows 49R-48D Senate with 3 races where Democrats haven’t come up with enough votes yet.
Also, Fauxnews seems to be indicating that Dims will retain control of the House.

I read that the voter turnout in the 18-25 age group was HUGE. If so, that might account for a lot of the blue results.

All the more reason to take a liberal to the range today. I have many young families living near me, and I've done it as much as they will allow.
