Report: Beto O'Rourke Tells Local TV Station He's Running for President

ㅤ"Early opinion polls on the 2020 race have consistently ranked O’Rourke in the top tier of contenders, behind former Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet said whether he is running, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a 2016 Presidential contender who announced his 2020 candidacy last month."

ㅤô¿ô …The waiting game between Biden and Beto is over. Biden won’t run because he no longer feels obligated to run.

Republicans Dig For Dirt Against Possible Nemesis O'Rourke

ㅤ"An official at the Republican National Committee said they’ve already compiled a ‘hefty’ book on O’Rourke as part of their extensive 2020 opposition research ‘and will continue to add to it.’ Examples include his voting record and a drunken driving arrest in 1998.
ㅤO’Rourke’s ties to the oil and gas industry are also among the issues being scrutinized by GOP operatives. In the 2017–2018 cycle he had the second highest amount in contributions from the industry, trailing only Republican Ted Cruz, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.’"

Beto O'Rourke, Julian Castro Deciding Whether to Battle for 2020 Bid

ㅤô¿ô …Again I say Beto is the only Dem who surely would beat Trump, as Beto is the only Dem who would get enough Republican votes.
ㅤBeto’s loss in Texas is practically meaningless. Because there is a higher percentage of Dems nationwide than there is in Texas.
ㅤNot nominating Beto would be like not nominating JFK. In 2020 we will thank God if Dems are too ignorant of history to see this.

2020: Beto: ‘I Don’t Know’ if I’m ‘Progressive’

ㅤ"When reporters asked if he was a ‘progressive Democrat,’ O’Rourke reportedly replied, ‘I don’t know.’
ㅤ’I’m just, as you may have seen and heard over the course of the campaign, I’m not big on labels,’ he continued. ‘I don’t get all fired up about party or classifying or defining people based on a label or a group. I’m for everyone.’"

ㅤô¿ô …I expected this. Beto is out of the starting gate and rounding the "first turn."

2020: Top Obama Bundler Backs Beto O'Rourke, ‘Time to Pass the Torch’

ㅤ"’It’s time to pass the torch to a new generation,’ Lois Susman told CNN. ‘I have nothing against the Bidens and Kerrys of the world and all of these senators that are looking at it, but I think the Beto example is what inspired people and what we are going to need.’"

ㅤô¿ô …Bullshit. It’s about Beto winning Texas. The Dems are most likely discussing Beto’s chances of doing that.
