Are we supposed to be scared by this?

I mean, I wouldn’t be.

Rep. Lizzie Fletcher

Houston Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher will be one of the first targets of a new nationwide anti-impeachment effort rolled out by President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.

Trump Victory announced Wednesday it will hold a “Stop The Madness” campaign event early on Thursday morning, calling on Fletcher “to drop the impeachment inquiry against President Trump and get back to work for Texas.” Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, an ardent Trump supporter, is scheduled to lead the event.

While other Houston Democrats including Al Green have been vocal advocates for impeaching Trump, Fletcher has been more cautious on the topic. Last week, she made her strongest comments yet, calling the president’s actions “a gross abuse of power” but stopping short of calling for his immediate impeachment, as many of her Democratic colleagues have.

This happened yesterday, at the Houston Marriott Westchase, in case anyone was around to see it. I just want to point out that Donald Trump got 46.8% in CD07 in 2016 (to Hillary Clinton’s 48.2%), and Sid Miller got 46.9% in CD07 in 2018, to Kim Olson’s 51.4%. Donald Trump is the reason CD07 went Democratic in 2018, and you’d be hard pressed to find someone more un-representative of the district than Sid Miller. Keep up the good work, y’all.

    In the other blue swing district, one of voices on the Tribcast (maybe Evan Smith?) said something to the effect of the fact that Pete Sessions is running in CD-17 is an implicit concession that CD-32 is out of reach.

    Yea, I think this, if anything, will help Fletcher. Trump is going to lose CD 7, and possibly by as much as 10 percent.

    This is political malpractice.

    Trump will win CD 7 and Lizzie will be a one term congressman. Lizzie won because of the cloud of suspicion by the Mueller witch hunt. That’s over, now the public knows that was a big fat lie. This current ‘Muh Kulooziun II: Ukraine Boogalo is going to fail even worse than the Russian hoax, and Lizzie will go down in the aftermath, as voters in her district realize that they were lied to. She IS Nancy Pelosi’s minion and does support peach mints, just like Al Green.

    Lots of energy workers in Lizzie’s district, and they aren’t going to vote against their own jobs, OR the great economy. That charming, “I’m a moderate who just wants to help my district” persona she cultivated during the campaign is belied by her actual voting record. Pelosi funded her, and if Pelosi ordered her to jump off a bridge, she’d jump off a bridge. She’s no moderate.

    Al will keep his seat because he’s black, but Lizzie isn’t going to keep her seat. Being a rich white girl just isn’t going to be enough without the tailwind of the Mueller hoax.
