The Republican Party of Texas was once the unwinnable team. Democrats were the party of the south and Texas reflected that election after election. So in 1978 when Bill Clements became the first republican Governor in over 100 years it was a surprise.

State democrats may have assuaged their fears with the knowledge that it was a off-election year and voter turnout was low, and--after all--it was only one office.
