Beto O’Rourke has announced that he’s running for president in 2020.
O’Rourke failed to beat Ted Cruz in 2018 for a seat in the Senate.
Last year was not a good year for Republicans; and it’s no secret that Ted Cruz has plenty of detractors. The election, therefore, should have been O’Rourke’s to lose. Yet O’Rourke somehow managed to snatch a defeat from the jaws of victory.
O’Rourke’s resume is singularly unimpressive. He’s served a single term in the House of Representatives.
Oh…and a stint on the El Paso City Council. He did found a small web design company…which he no longer seems to be affiliated with.
Oh, and he kicked around on the indie music scene for a while.
In short, at the age of 46, Beto O’Rourke has very little to recommend him for the White House. Even if you’re a leftwing Democrat, this one must be a tough sell.
The Democrats have at long last found a candidate who makes Kamala Harris seem eminently qualified.
