I saw a pretty funny tweet from a lefty liberal about Beto O’Rourke and how much support he has.

Beto O’Rourke, sure thing for D.C. Advisory Neighborhood Commission.
That made me wonder, just how much support for O’Rourke is coming from liberal states outside of Texas?
So, I jaunted over to the Open Secrets election funding website, and found this handy little map of the total donations to O’Rourke’s campaign:
Wow. $2.57 MILLION comes from just two states – California and New York.
That is more than HALF of the total money from states outside of Texas (56%).
Let’s look at Cruz’s support:
Whatever else you want to say about their out-of-state support, at least Cruz’s is more representative of the entire country instead of just TWO states.
Finally, lets compare apples to apples. Cruz has $26 million in donations from Texas, whereas Beto O’Rourke only has $9 million. Now, I’m not saying that money determines elections. It doesn’t. BUT, money is generally representative of what people want in a state. Studies of U.S. elections show that money doesn’t determine the outcome of elections [like many annoying liberals assume it does], but rather that in a district where one politician has a lot of support, he will be able to raise a lot of money.
And that is why TedNado will beat back the liberal hordes from California and New York, and keep Texas red.
Also, how come Beto got $3k from “no state”?! Sounds like campaign finance crime to me!! LOCK HIM UP!! LOCK HIM UP!!
