Listen: Senate, Dallas Morning News, Texas discussed on Other Side of Texas
"Last night. I was talking on the program just going through all the aftermath of choosy night. Of course, the Texas house has hundred and fifty members in there were twelve democratic gains in the house and four something to pass in the house. Like, oh, say new speaker? It's gotta have seventy six votes. Which means that. Now, the Democrats only need non Republicans to go along with them that changes the dynamic, but the dynamic was a little bit changed in the Senate when two of the most conservative quote unquote for me conservative. This important distinction isn't other side of Texas moment here. Conservative to me has a derivative of conserve. That's let's do some exegesis for just a moment. Conserve in so much of what I see in the reason people will say will lease is not a conservative. I'm not there kind the conservative that does anything, but a place I want a conservatism that not only embraces traditions in values. I want one that whenever I vote for it. I'm not voting against the economy, a my place that would be nice after all to maintain one's place for posterity. And we've jumped in. Too. Many Republicans have jumped in with a brand of conservatism that does anything, but conserves it comes at great cost, and I can go into that further. That's a monologue for another time. I think Brandon Darby's doing the show with me tomorrow. We can talk about that riff on a little bit. But two of the not when I call conservative, but lots of mass media calls conservative members of thirty one seat Senate lost making it harder. As Ross Ramsey said yesterday for the Lieutenant governor to get to nineteen boats there in the Senate kill Seliger has stood in. I think you'll hear him say here coming up, then he's gonna maintain where he was he's going to be a swing vote, and they aren't going to be able to stop them. It's gonna be interesting to hear kill solar coming up. So last night. I was talking about Kilger get off air in a c. The Dallas Morning News. Lauren Magai does a great job. Dallas Morning News puts up new piece in it's called democrat. The title is Democrats flipped to Texas Senate seats, creating key GOP swing vote in the process, and there's a picture of kill Seliger. Dateline? Austin? Democrats flipped to Texas Senate seats on Tuesdays victories. It may change the chambers tone and even shift its priorities. Policy priorities. Nathan Johnson became the first democrat to represent Dallas in thirty years. His Dallas district Beverly Powell developer and former school cook."
