During the election Beto said that he wasn’t interested in running for president in 2020, but now of course all that has changed…
POLITICO – Beto O’Rourke said Monday that he is no longer ruling out a run for president in 2020, a reversal that thrilled his legion of loyal supporters while clouding an already-crowded Democratic primary field.
“Running for Senate, I was 100 percent focused on our campaign, winning that race and then serving the next six years in the United States Senate,” the Texas congressman told reporters after a town hall forum here. “Now that that is no longer possible, you know, we’re thinking through a number of things.”
Asked if his position on 2020 is different than it was before the November election, when he said he would not run for president, O’Rourke said, “Yeah, yeah it is.”
In his first public event since the midterm election, O’Rourke said he would make no decision about running until after he leaves Congress in early January. But in a lengthy rebuke of President Donald Trump — on issues ranging from immigration to taxes and military spending abroad — he suggested the early formation of a platform.
He couldn’t beat Ted Cruz but he wants to run for president? Well, the way liberals are fangirling over him it’s not a shock.
And like I said before he owes them bigtime for donating 70 million to his Senate campaign.
