  • He May Not Be a Candidate, but Beto O’Rourke is Rebuilding His Texas Organizing Machine for 2020

    O’Rourke’s 2018 Senate campaign was fueled by an organizing network of 20,000 volunteers. Can he harness that energy again without being on the ticket?Beto O’Rourke began 2019 as a political phenom, but ended it as an also-ran. The much-hyped former U.S. representative from El Paso initially rode a wave of optimism from his nationally watched Senate campaign, but struggled to gain support in the presidential race. It was an underwhelming end of a chapter for a man who was once viewed as the great hope for Texas Democrats. But even though—to the dismay of many supporters—O’Rourke opted not to jump...

    Before Robert “Beto” Francis O’Rourke’s frenetic mannerisms, weird statements, and bold call for total gun confiscation knocked him out of the Democrat presidential primaries, he was considered one of the great hopes of the Democrat Party in Texas. After all, in 2018, in the great, red state of Texas, he had almost beaten Senator Ted Cruz’s bid for reelection. Eliz Markowitz was Beto’s designated successor and really thought she could win in Texas House District 28, a Houston suburb. But just like Beto, Markowitz flamed out, although more spectacularly than Beto did. Markowitz, a Ph.D. who calls herself “doctor” (making...

    Republican Gary Gates Tuesday appeared headed to a smashing victory over Democrat Eliz Markowitz in a special runoff election for a vacant state House seat in the Houston suburbs where Democrats hoped an upset win would kick start efforts to win control of the Texas House in 2020. In the early vote, Gates, with 10,707, votes, was leading Markowitz, with 7,461 votes, 59% to 41%. If he prevails when all the votes are counted, Gates will serve the unexpired term of state Rep. John Zerwas, R-Richmond, who announced in mid-summer that he was stepping down from representing House District 28...

    As we reported earlier, Joe Biden told Politico that he might consider two of his former competitors as his running mate if he were to win the Democratic nomination for president. Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday he would consider former presidential candidates Beto O’Rourke and Julián Castro to be a running mate or a member of his Cabinet if he is elected president.

    Craig Lang, who is charged with killing a Florida couple in 2018, has become a cause célèbre in the country where he has fought as a mercenary. In the spring of 2015, former U.S. soldier Craig Lang traveled to Ukraine and joined a paramilitary group fighting the Russians. “I never noticed any fear,” said Mamuka Mamulashvili, who commanded Lang in the Georgian Legion. Four years later, Lang is under house arrest in Ukraine. His situation has nothing to do with his conduct inside the eastern European country. Lang is facing charges in the U.S. for allegedly killing a Florida couple...

    Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) said Tuesday that he plans to focus on flipping the Texas state House to Democratic control in 2020. “Everything flows up from that," the former presidential candidate told reporters, according to The Texas Tribune. "So not only could Democrats gain control of the House and make progress on stormwater infrastructure, health care, gun violence, climate and education, but that will incidentally help the federal races — from U.S. Congress to U.S. Senate — and I also think it’s also going to lay the groundwork for whoever the presidential nominee is." O’Rourke told reporters of his...

    Beto O’Rourke was one of more than 20 Democrats hoping to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. He had a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record and opposed a bill to protect newborns from infanticide. But the former Texas congressman decided to drop out after lackluster results, a low polling and fundraising standing, and the inability to better connect with voters. The former Texas congressman made the announcement on Friday in a series of tweets, saying, “I am announcing that my service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee.” “I am grateful to all the people...

    At the end of this week, former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke (D) formally announced he was dropping out of the Democratic primary race after pledging to take all our guns and punish churches for not condoning gay marriage. According to campaign finance records, O’Rourke spent 14 million on his campaign, with clearly nothing to show for it! Campaign finance reports issued on September 30 showed that O’Rourke spent $13,965,478, according to Open Secrets. While final numbers for his campaign have yet to be released, he likely surpassed $14 million in money spent int he 30 days following his last report,...

    With any luck at all, this will be the last time the Campaign Update ever pens a word about the Texas charlatan, Irish Bob O’Rourke, or, as we love to call him around our house, el Pendejo Grande. His friends call him “Beto,” but as the new USA Today/Suffolk poll released on Friday clearly shows, Irish Bob’s “friends” have all gone away now. O’Rourke came in at ZERO in that poll, after the last handful of fawning fake journalists at Vanity Fair and the Houston Chronicle finally turned their amorous eyes towards Preacher Pete Buttigieg, and it seems that may...

    Former Representative Beto O’Rourke of Texas is dropping out of the presidential race, ending a campaign in which he struggled for months to recapture the energy of his insurgent 2018 Senate candidacy on a national stage full of other big personalities and liberal champions. Mr. O’Rourke made the decision to quit the race in the middle of this week, on the eve of a gathering Friday of Democratic presidential candidates in Iowa, according to people familiar with his thinking. He is not expected to run for any other office in 2020, despite persistent efforts by party leaders and political donors...

    ⁉️ The TRUTH about Beto's GUN CONFISCATION interview on the Breakfast Club Enough with the “Weapons of War” propaganda on the Breakfast Club. The AR-15 cannot be a weapon of war because the AR15 is exclusively a civilian rifle. The M16 is a military rifle used in war. The M4 is a military rifle used in war. The AR15 is a civilian sporting rifle made for Civilians. The AR in AR15 does not stand for Assault Rifle, it stands for Armalite rifle which is the company that initially designed it. Our Military does not use AR-15s. They use M16’s and...

    (snip) O’Rourke, who famously declared during a presidential debate that he would “take” AR-15s and AK-47s, was confronted by a student in Iowa on Friday who described himself as a “hunter” who uses an AR-15. “What about those people who use that as a way to, you know, get dinner, who live down south who don’t really have a lot of options for food, and they don’t have money but they can get their own?” the student asked. The student went on to explain that an AR-15 is “much more efficient” at killing an animal like a deer and how...

    MEXICO CITY—Last week, hundreds of gunmen from the Sinaloa cartel overpowered military forces in fighting that killed at least a dozen people, blocked the airport and major roads, and terrorized the city of Culiacán for hours until the Mexican government capitulated and freed the son of legendary drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán. There doesn’t seem to be an end to the bloodshed. But authorities have finally figured out a way to end all the senseless violence that has plagued the country. In a statement, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has announced that the Mexican government has hired Robert “Beto”...
