Texas Senator Ted Cruz, R, said in a video Sunday that “if the Democrats win Texas, it’s all over,” describing what could happen for voters if his state and the country flip blue.

“We’re at a crossroads,” Cruz explained. “The future of our country and the American Dream are very much at stake in 2020. We’ve never seen anything like this. In Texas, the stakes are especially high.”

He added, “Texas is the single biggest target for the left in 2020, politically speaking. The 38 electoral votes at stake. There’s a U.S. Senate seat at stake. And Texas is the key to national domination for years to come.”

If the Republicans lose the state, the White House, Congress, the American peoples’ individual freedoms will go away, Cruz said. “As we watch our country burn, those rights are even more precious and valued. That’s what this election is all about,” he continued.

According to polls, the presidential race in Texas will be close. Moreover, the RealClearPolitics poll shows President Trump leading former Vice President Joe Biden by two points.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
