Caren: Thanks for this piece.

I don't share your enthusiasm for Beto O'Rourke. Democrats would have a better chance of winning with someone else--someone with a bit more substance. I was singularly unimpressed with O'Rourke during his aborted presidential run. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see a majority of Texas voters choosing him over Abbott, despite all of the incumbent's negatives.

Sorry to be so negative, but to win Democrats need to find better candidates.
