Headlines around the state gave Texans the news with varying degrees of excitement and dismay yesterday - Beto didn't the big union endorsement. You're probably asking - "why does anyone care?" It's newsworthy because it's so idiotic.
If you're a union in Texas things are hard enough already. It's a right to work state. You don't need to compound this by pissing off the only guy who might have given one damn about your issues. Beto may have not come to the candidate forum/meeting/waste of time, but that doesn't mean he won't side with you when the time comes. Why make an enemy out of a natural ally?
Like me, Ted Cruz ain't worried a bit about the health of the unions. Cruz is anti-union - as he should be. He's never going to be on the union's side. So why not take a chance on the other guy? It's not like they have to give Beto money they don't have. Just write it down on the union's website and move on. That way later on you can squeeze Beto for a favor (if he wins).
It all just seems so stupid to me.
