Failed Presidential Candidate Wastes No Time, Jumps Into Texas Gubernatorial Race

Failed Presidential Candidate Wastes No Time, Jumps Into Texas Gubernatorial Race

(ReliableNews.org) – It’s not the first time Robert “Beto” O’Rourke runs for multiple political offices. Despite the fact he’s lost previous Senatorial and Presidential bids, he is hoping third time’s the charm with a gubernatorial bid.

On November 15, O’Rourke announced he is running for governor of Texas. The Democrat discussed the power grid failures in February during an especially harsh winter. He said people were “abandoned by those who were elected to serve and look out for them.” He claimed elected officials in the state aren’t paying attention to voters, and he wants to change that.

In 2018, then-Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke ran against Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his Senate seat. He lost big time. Then in 2019, he ran for the Democratic nomination for President.

In reality, Governor Greg Abbott (R) didn’t abandon Texans at all during the power outages. He responded to the situation quickly, and the GOP-led legislature passed bills to overhaul the state’s power grid.

O’Rourke’s planned run thrilled Abbott, and he let him know as much in a tweet on Monday.

The Democrat’s chances of winning Texas are slim. Although the Left has dreams of flipping it one day, it’s currently solid red. Abbott will likely sail to victory, and Beto will likely have another loss under his belt, but only time will tell.
