  1. Sad to say we are more than likely to get stuck with Abbott. I was hoping a more moderate approach would get us in. Stuck in a civil war between extreams.
    MY opinion.

  2. Being Latina or LGBtQ are not extremes. Being pro-choice is not extreme. Now being a realist I was amazed when Lupe won and was re-elected here for County Sheriff. Her reality of being different from the “norm” did not define her but added to her understanding of all of society. Abbott has been on at best but still panders to the church people far too much. That’s the extreme.
