After resounding defeat in Texas, calls for Beto to run for president in 2020

Democrat Rep. Robert O’Rourke raised $70 million to defeat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and still lost by more than 100,000 votes. Texans weren’t having any of his fake Mexican nonsense.

O’Rourke was described by Channel 4 News as having “a skateboard, a young family and modern political instincts to match”, the BBC called him a “rising star” but last night despite the overwhelmingly positive coverage of his campaign he fell short of winning by 100,000s of votes.

In 2014, O’Rourke raised $700,000 to be elected to congress by 3.2 million votes. Four years later and four million votes later, Democrats spent $17.5 per vote compared to 22 cents per vote in 2014– and still lost.

In his concession speech O’Rourke dropped F Bombs.

Now people on social media are calling for O’Rourke to run for president in 2020. This would be a Republican dream come true and a resounding victory for Trump.
