This is Really Good News

10/25/18 Houston Chronicle:
For the first time in American history, a U.S. Senate race will top $100 million in spending as U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and his Democratic rival Beto O’Rourke battle down the stretch in one of the most-watched races in the nation.
That milestone was certain after Cruz announced on Thursday that he has already raised $5.3 million this month. O’Rourke announced he has pulled in another $8.4 million during the same time period. Combined, the two have raised $110 million for the race.
Good news, becasuse the $61 million sunk into what is likely going to be an O'Rourke loss is money that could have been used in other Democratic races.  Even the billionaires have limited money.

People are already suggesting that O'Rourke plans to run for president. Thus what ever money he doesn't spend will be used later in 2020. Until then he just becomes a safety deposit box.
