Iím a Democrat, but I doubt that Beto lost due to straight ticket Democratic votes changing to Cruz. If that had been the case I think it would have shown up with a pattern where, say, Lupe Valdez would have done better against Greg Abbott because the governor votes werenít flipped like the ones for senate were. Instead Beto did better than Lupe Valdez did, likely due to some old school (Bush type) Republicans splitting their vote.
