Cruz called McTurtle a liar, fought Trump, then supported Trump.  He's probably gotten under a few people's skins.

Was Dewhurst popular at all?
well. He was elected 3 times as Lt Governor each time improving his prior results, so data says yes.

I figured based on the comment that TX had a separate election for Lt Gov.

Texas Moves to Purge 95,000 Voters Suspected of Not Being U.S. Citizens

Texas officials have launched a purge of 95,000 people from the voter rolls, saying they do not appear to be U.S. citizens -- just the beginning of a wider, more frequent purging that will happen monthly from now on.

Texas Secretary of State David Whitley said working with the Department of Public Safety, his office has been able to identify the potential non-citizens among those registered to vote, including 58,000 who have cast ballots before in Texas elections.

The Secretary of State cannot remove the voters from the rolls. That is up to county elections officials. But Whitley has recommended counties take action by sending notices that would give the people who have been flagged 30 days to prove they are eligible to vote by presenting a birth certificate, passport, or certificate of naturalization. If they fail to respond, their registrations will be canceled by the county voter registrar.

The Secretary of State's Office said Friday it was not prepared to release a list of how many voters per county are affected, but verified that Harris County has the most.

Already, the list of 58,000 people suspected to have voted despite being non-citizens is being forwarded to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton for potential legal action. It is a felony to vote in Texas when you know you are not eligible.

"Nothing is more vital to preserving our Constitution than the integrity of our voting process, and my office will do everything within its abilities to solidify trust in every election in the state of Texas," Paxton, a Republican, said in a statement to the media.

The news is almost certain to buoy conservatives from President Donald Trump to Gov. Greg Abbott who have alleged illegal voting and voter fraud are rampant.

Abbott, who made voter fraud a priority item for the Texas Legislature in 2017, said Friday that "illegal voting in Texas will not be tolerated, and as governor, I will continue root it out and punish it.

The Secretary of State's office relied on documents that the voters themselves submitted to DPS when they were trying to obtain drivers licenses. Non-citizens, such as temporary residents, asylum seekers and refugees, are eligible to get a Texas drivers license, but they are not allowed to register to vote unless they become U.S. citizens.

"It is important to note that we are not using information self-reported by the person regarding citizenship status; rather, we are using documents provided by the person to show they are lawfully present in the United States," wrote the state's director of elections, Keith Ingram, in a notice to registrars in all 254 Texas counties.

Harris County pushes back against state’s call for voter purge

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/politics/texas/article/Harris-County-pushes-back-against-state-s-call-13567454.php

Quote
The largest county in Texas is pushing back against the state’s effort to purge from the voter rolls nearly 100,000 people that state officials suspect are not U.S. citizens.

Harris County election officials say they will not automatically send notices to voters identified by the Secretary of State’s Office as potentially being non-citizens. Instead, they will first do their own research on the affected voters before sending anything out.

“We are going to proceed very carefully,” said Douglas Ray, a special assistant county attorney in Harris who specializes in election issues. “We’re going to make sure we don’t improperly disenfranchise anyone.”

In addition, a coalition of voting rights advocacy groups including the ACLU Foundation of Texas are putting new pressure on the state to reverse course.

The reaction comes three days after the Texas Secretary of State David Whitley announced the discovery of about 95,000 people who are on the voter registration rolls who may not be U.S. citizens — including 58,000 who have voted at least once in past elections as far back as 1996. Whitley said the state used Department of Public Safety records to identify drivers who submitted documents that proved they were not legal U.S. citizens at that time, but were eligible to drive. Then the state compared those names and Social Security numbers with the state voter rolls. It’s those matches that the state is now sending to county voting officials statewide to start the process of purging any non-citizens.

The effort was met gleefully by President Donald Trump over the weekend who saw it as confirmation of the voter fraud he’s long insisted is a national problem.

I thought the 'A' in ACLU stood for "American". In the case of illegals, the "A" doesn't apply (unless they meant to include "Central" and "South" in that). Which leaves us with CLU, and invites speculation what those letters stand for.

When was the last time the ACLU stood against a gun control measure, yet another infringement of the RKBA?

There is no joint ticket.

I’m guessing that since the Dems swept the district court elections in Harris County tha last election, it will be easy to get an injunction against the State.

   And these past few months I thought Cruz won by only 1.2% because Trump campaigned for him, turns out all the illegals voted for the Irishman 'BETO' instead of a real Hispanic.   Go figure.

2.6%

County officials removing some names from flagged voter lists

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/neighborhood/galveston/news/article/Galveston-County-sends-out-letters-as-part-of-13570592.php

Quote
State officials on Tuesday told voter registrars in several Texas counties that some of the nearly 100,000 names on a list of potentially ineligible voters should not have been included because they are U.S. citizens.

Cheryl Johnson, Galveston county's tax assessor-collector, said her county started sending letters Monday asking people on the list to verify their citizenship. But on Tuesday, Johnson said, the Texas secretary of state's office notified her that some on on the list had been verified as citizens.

"We managed to retrieve the second batch of letters that we were going to mail today," said Johnson.  "The ones we sent yesterday, we're going to go back and check those."

Johnson said 837 Galveston County voters were flagged by the state, and her office sent letters to  a little over 85 of them on Monday with plans to mail more on subsequent days. The letters ask that the recipients provide a U.S. passport, birth certificate or citizenship papers to her office within 30 days, she said. Those who fail to do so could be dropped from voter rolls.

Based on the source code that was given to her by the secretary of state's office, she said her office was able to pull 37 letters they planned to mail out on Tuesday. They were still planning to send out 50 letters to registered voters in the area.
