I will admit I knew nothing about Dan Crenshaw until I saw him on SNL. Since then, I have been reading about his guy, and, I think he has the same charisma, smarts, and "it" factor to energize the Republicans that voted for Beto. This is exactly the kind of people the Republican party needs. He understands that we lost districts that we used to win, and is trying to figure out why and shake things up. I haven't done 100% of the homework I need to do, but what I have seen/read so far is on point. He knows we need to make the republican party exciting again. He knows we can't keep electing old, white, rich guys or we will lose the Republican party in next 50 years. He knows we need to reach out to the young voter, and not look like idiots while doing so. He agrees with Trump on some issues, such as protecting the border, but he isn't a Trump-ite. He has been compared to Will Hurd, who I like very much. If you don't read the article, here is just one way he is revitalizing the party. In his district in Houston, he ran 100 miles, (as in literally running, no car!) through the district, stopping in pubs, bars, groups and meetings along the way to talk to the young voters. He is targeting the same age group as Beto. And yes, millennial voters find this kind of thing cool. (no skateboards or air guitars, just old fashioned running) He made even my liberal friends impressed by the way he handled the SNL situation, and was quoted as saying, "We need to quit suing each other, or demanding that people lose their jobs...it has gotten out of hand. I want to show that Rs and Ds can talk to each other, listen, agree to disagree, but respect each other" Lastly, in my opinion, he is way, way hotter than Beto. I hate to say it, but that seems to matter with the suburban housewives that the Rs lost in the midterms. I like the cut of this man's gib. (jib?) I'm going to be reading much more about him. As of last night, Beto has done a total 180 and said he is now seriously running for President. The Republican party better wake up and find more Dan Crenshaws. Dan Crenshaw started the week as a punchline and ended it as a star. The real story came before that.
