Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America praise Texas Governor Greg Abbott for a series of conservative legislative victories. They also react as YouTube admits it is suppressing what it deems “borderline” content. And in a double crazy martini, they discuss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (literally) running from Republican competition while reportedly entertaining a future primary challenge to either Sen. Chuck Schumer or Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

    I don’t want to rain too much on the Greg Abbott parade but there are areas where Texas is far behind other states in conservative reforms, particularly school choice. The big success this session was property tax reform (barely got done in time) but there were a ton of other reforms that didn’t go anywhere.

    The governor is an extraordinarily weak office in Texas due to our byzantine state constitution so you can’t blame Abbott too much. He really only put his weight behind school finance/property tax reform this session. Yay for that but Texas conservatives expect and deserve more.

    I would love to see Abbott run for President. He is an authentic Conservative, who has not been swept up in the Trump mania.

    A polite loser, in other words!
