Far left Democrat Beto O’Rourke ran for Senate in Texas and lost. Then he ran for president and lost. Now he is reportedly going to run for governor of Texas, another race he is likely to lose.
You may be asking yourself why he is even bothering to run. Well, Beto is one of those people who can’t NOT run for office, no matter how many times the voters say no.
Running for office is the only thing that gives his life purpose. He married into a very rich family and has nothing else to do.
Axios has the story:
Scoop: Sources say Beto plans Texas comeback in governor’s race
Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke is preparing to run for governor of Texas in 2022, with an announcement expected later this year, Texas political operatives tell Axios.
Why it matters: O’Rourke’s entry would give Democrats a high-profile candidate with a national fundraising network to challenge Republican Gov. Greg Abbott — and give O’Rourke, a former three-term congressman from El Paso and 2020 presidential candidate and voting rights activist, a path to a political comeback.
– But he would be running in a complicated political environment. Immigration is surging at the southern border and Democrats at the national level are bracing for a brutal midterm election and potentially losing the House of Representatives in 2022.
– A new poll for the Dallas Morning News shows that O’Rourke has narrowed the gap with Abbott in a hypothetical matchup, down, 37%-42%. In July, O’Rourke faced a 12-point deficit, 33%-45%.
– Over the summer, Abbot has seen his approval rating sink to 41%, with 50% disapproving, in a separate poll.
You know who is just like Beto in his pathological need to run for office no matter how many times he loses?
With the news of Beto O’Rourke planning a run for Texas Governor, raise your hand if you’re ready to DEFEAT both Greg Abbott AND Ron DeSantis in 2022.
