Where the hell is all of this money coming from and shouldn't we as a country be disturbed by this?

I’m surprised it isn’t 10/10 every new election cycle I guess
I don't think there's 10 truly competitive Senate races most years and I'm assuming that until very recently less money was spent on races in smaller states

Ads in Texas use a candidate’s association with Trump as a negative. Never thought I’d see it.

If the question is whether I've seen a bunch of MJ Hegar ads lately, the answer is "yes."

interesting that this is completely focused on health care and covid.  trump won this district by 9 in '16, cruz won it by 1 in '18.

That's definitely not what I know about Dan Crenshaw.

I will say I have never seen Cornyn ads ever until this election.  But every other commercial is for Heger.

that's interesting because hegar hasn't raised all that much money herself.  she raised like 14 million last quarter, which would normally be fine, but compared to like harrison raising 50 million or whatever it was, it's pretty bad.

I never donated to Heger because I never thought she had a chance of winning, I still don’t but it will be closer than I thought.

Don't worry, that dorkstore will be sweating through shirts on a skateboard at your local Whataburger for many years to come.

my expectation since forever has been that she'll run a couple of points behind biden.

The recode article was interesting, at least the statement trying to quantify late TV ads' impact. I cant image it's that high of an effect tho.

Definitely seen some ads, but I suspect most people like myself were going to vote against Cornyn regardless of his opponent if they were going to vote him down at all.
