Beto O’Rourke Launches Bid For Texas Governor | The Daily Wire

Dems keep trying to turn Texas blue, but it seems more red right now than it has been in a while. And Abbott is loved. This seems like a waste. Still, they have to run somebody, I guess. At least they won’t have to spend a lot on getting his name and face known to the public.

Former Democratic presidential candidate and U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke officially launched a run for Texas governor on Monday, announcing that he intends to “serve ALL of the people of Texas.”

“I am running for governor to serve ALL of the people of Texas,” he said in his announcement, according to The Hill. “I believe that the only way we are going to achieve great things for this state is by looking out for each other and moving forward together.”

O’Rourke will likely be running against incumbent Republican Governor Greg Abbott. He said that he wanted to combat the “fringe policies and incompetence that we see in Texas today.”

Hard to see many people other than diehard Democrats seeing “incompetence” in the Abbott administration. Texas is doing better than just about any other state.
