Democrats are panicking after two Republicans advanced to a runoff in a special election in Texas’ Sixth Congressional District on Saturday. Democrats have been aiming to flip this Texas district blue but these results show that the Lone Star state is maintaining its allegiance to the GOP.

Fox News reports:

The results were seen as a blow to Democrats because two Republicans earned enough votes to advance to a runoff. Susan Wright, the wife of the late Republican Rep. Ron Wright, was followed in votes by Jake Ellzey who eked out a win over Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez. (Sanchez conceded in a social media post. She lost by about 400 votes.)

John Fund, a national affairs columnist for the National Review, took to Twitter on Sunday to consider the outcome of the race and the general popularity of a president who just released his vision for the future of the country.

“If Biden Is So Popular, Why This?” Fund asked, linking to a story with the election result. “Republicans grabbed the two runoff slots in the Texas 6 special election yesterday. Dems were shut out, their candidates won a total 36% in a Dallas area seat that Trump carried by only 3 points last November.”

Last month, a Fox News poll showed a 54% majority of voters approved of Biden’s job performance. That’s lower than Barack Obama’s 62% and George W. Bush’s 63% approval at their respective 100-day points. Donald Trump’s approval four years ago was at 45%.

Former President Trump also congratulated Susan Wright on her victory.

“Congratulations to Susan Wright on her great surge yesterday which made her NUMBER ONE and assures her participation in the TX-06 runoff against another Republican. The Democrats have just conceded the race. Susan surged after I gave her an endorsement last week. Her wonderful husband is looking down, and is very proud of her!” Trump wrote.

“The time has come the Walrus said ………. to speak of many things.” One of the most important things for Republicans to start speaking about is getting up off their sorry asses and start fighting back. Joe Biden is an idiot – and he’s not even running the government. It’s being run by Kamala and Hunter, who are WAY more cunning and devious and WAY farther left. Are you really going to sit there and allow America to become a socialist society? Get involved, get out there and vote, stop this idiocy! What you are seeing is a complete takeover by leftists and socialists. To ignore it will cause our complete demise. If you really love your country, it’s time to get involved.
