Don't get over confident with a GOP sweep of Texas elections in 2014

Despite General Abbott having an opportunity to embarrassingly whip a Democrat's butt in the General Election, we cannot become complacent about Texas' future as a Red State. Battleground Texas is serious about their goals of turning Texas blue. There has been no secret to Battle Ground Texas' strategy. It is all about the demographics folks. And Battleground Texas is patiently waiting for their opportunity.   Read more »
