Pauken: How to win by losing

From the Right: Former Texas GOP Chairman Tom Pauken argues Beto O’Rourke will be the first Democrat in modern history to run statewide in Texas whose career isn’t ended by his loss

Beto O’Rourke may have narrowly lost the race for the U.S. Senate in Texas to Ted Cruz (the final results show Cruz with 51% of the vote and O’Rourke 48%), but he outperformed any Democrat in a statewide race since the 1990s.

 Moreover, he was able to raise and spend over $70 million in his campaign, the largest sum ever raised for a Senate race in Texas – and nearly twice as much as the incumbent Ted Cruz raised.

The full column by former Texas GOP Chairman Tom Pauken is in the R&D Department.
