ㅤ”BetDSI released betting lines Monday that ranked Mr. O’Rourke as the person to beat following his failed bid to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in Texas, giving him +500 odds of capturing his party’s nomination.
ㅤ’With the amount of publicity the Texas race received, as well as the media’s affection with O’Rourke, there’s been a steady stream of bets on Beto in 2020,’ said Brent Corobotuic, head linesman at BetDSI.
ㅤMr. O’Rourke is followed by Sens. Kamala Harris of California (+550) and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (+800) as well as former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Sen. Bernard Senders of Vermont, both of whom come in at +1,000.”
ㅤô¿ô …There is sound logic to a ticket of O’Rourke (TX) and Sherrod Brown (OH). Winning Texas and Ohio would deliver 47 electoral votes that the Dems did not have in 2016. Add those votes to what Clinton won in 2016 and presto…Beto becomes the President in 2020.
