Houston Chronicle Ed Board Calls On Beto O’Rourke To Drop Out Of 2020 Race | The newspaper instead wants the Democratic presidential candidate to “come back to Texas to run for senator.
Beto’s ego got the better of him, and likely largely due to a bunch of fucking opportunists who swarmed him and started talking in his ear about a bid because they thought they could ride his coat-tails as some Obama 2.0.
I’d feel bad for him that he fell for the bullshit of people like that (assuming that was even the case), but in the end he made the foolish choice himself.
Politicians from Texas just never learn that what plays well in Texas doesn’t play well across the country. Now, rather than potentially turning around to have a successful run in Texas, Beto likely shit on his political future. Texans are pissed at him for abandoning a Senate run and I imagine many don’t trust him anymore, because he showed he was more interested in catapulting his own career than serving his constituents.
Doesn’t help that a lot of the the veneer wore off and some of his less than progressive sticking points started to show after that race against Cruz.
