AUSTIN, Texas — Former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s decision to join the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, announced Thursday, may turn out to be a dangerous development not just for President Donald Trump, but the Republican Party writ large.

O’Rourke has proved he can turn out voters along the border and compete with a prominent Republican in a red state. If Democrats have a chance of wresting Texas and its 38 electoral votes away from the GOP, it likely lies with O’Rourke.

“Beto has the potential ― alone among the Democratic nominees ― to put Texas into play,” Rice University political scientist Mark Jones said. “If Trump is forced to go on the defense in Texas, that really complicates the rest of his election strategy. There’s almost no way for him to win mathematically if he loses Texas the way things are looking today.”

The report states that Demographics have long appeared to favor Democrats, but Republicans have continued to win to a low voter turnout among Democrats, especially Latinos.  However, O’Rourke will change that, the article states.

      He lost to Cruz by a small margin. Cruz was supposed to by s large margin. He was able to flip Ft Worth that had been solid red for years. Ft worth was the one big city that the republicans held in Texas. Huston Dallas Austin and San Antonio are already have already flipped
