Texas Republicans, led by candidate Peter Flores, won a special election on Tuesday in the Texas State Senate. Hillary Clinton won this district by 12 points just 22 months ago, and Flores won by 6 points on Tuesday evening. This district has not been represented by a Republican in the State Senate since 1879. That’s right, 1879. Rutherford B. Hayes was president in 1879. And Albert Einstein, he of the theory of relativity and E=MC2, was born in 1879.
Nationally, Republicans should take heart from this victory and keep fighting. Do NOT fall for the media’s narrative of a “blue wave” or unicorn dust or anything else. Get out there and persuade the people on the fence, the people who decide late, that you are the right person for the job.
Ideas and big issues win elections. While the Republican party has all the modern ideas, and the Democrats continue to push the unimportant, uninspiring, and unworkable agenda, even devoted Leftist John Kerry is telling the Democrats they are wrong for Democrats to be talking about abolishing ICE and impeaching President Trump:
Our economy is outperforming previous expectations in nearly every metric, logging it's best performance in nearly 4 years. All of these incredible numbers show our nation is better off, our families are better off, our workers are better off – Incredible! https://t.co/dlGQI4Hw49

Less than an hour ago at the time of this posting, President Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh as his choice to replace Justice Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court. Last Friday we recorded a podcast (skip to minute 6 if you like) about how the Left plays the game during times like this. We mentioned that the Left would use the word “extreme” in their pre-fab press releases and talking points to describe anyone that President Trump would choose.
Well, true to form, here are some of the immediate tweets since the announcement, and the word “extreme” is in each one of them:
#BREAKING: Trump just selected Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court—an extreme judge who would threaten our health care, marriage equality, and Roe v. Wade.
