    Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) is expected to teach Texas politics at Texas State University’s Department of Political Science in the Spring of 2021, according to the University Star. “Pending finalization of his hire, O’Rourke will join the department as an instructor teaching a synchronous online class,” the article said. Political Science Chair Ken Grasso told the paper O’Rourke gravitated toward Texas politics when the two discussed potential class subjects.

    An unexpected star of President Trump’s Thursday night town hall event was a woman seated behind him in the audience — wearing a red mask and nodding along in agreement to most everything the president said. The unidentified spectator could be seen on the left-hand side of Trump, seemingly praising the president as he sparred with NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie

    Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke believes that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden can win Texas’ 38 electoral votes this November – a move that would mark a drastic change for a state once considered firmly in the hands of the Republican Party. O’Rourke, a Democrat who came to national prominence when he ran a close race challenging Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz for this seat, told CBS late last week that the Lone Star state was “Biden’s to lose.” "My contention is that this is Biden's to lose. And we're not going to wait for the Biden campaign to wake...

    VIDEO Nothing says desperation like having to livestream with the King of All Livestreamers, Beto O'Rourke, in order to save a failing political campaign despite being a Kennedy in Massachusetts. Such was the case with Joe Kennedy III who somehow expected incumbent Democrat Senator Ed Markey would be an easy pushover to basically step aside and allow the Kennedy Princeling to assume his birthright seat in the Senate as a pit stop to the Presidency. Unfortunately, for poor Joe, Markey is not playing his expected role of compliant loser and has been putting up such a good fight spanking...

    At the Democrat National Convention (DNC) on Monday evening, failed Democrat presidential primary candidate Beto O’Rourke suggested that President Trump is more racist than presidents who owned slaves. “You had the most destructive, hateful, racist president in the history of this country who is literally tearing apart the fabric of the United States of America,” O’Rourke said during a clip at the DNC.

    Tuesday on MSNBC, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) called the Texas GOP a “death cult” who wants “African-Americans” and “Latinos” to do the dying. O’Rourke said, “You know, the United States has been hit hard by COVID. Texas, arguably, harder than almost any other state right now, perhaps with the exception of Florida and Arizona, and within Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, and particularly Hidalgo County, is just getting the stuffing knocked out of it. They’re running out of beds and space in their hospitals and clinics. They’re running out of nurses and doctors to take care of the patients....

    As violent crime spikes in some U.S. cities, former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke claims a Republican Party “death cult mentality” is to blame. Speaking on MSNBC, O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat, was asked to comment on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott both recently calling for schools to reopen for the fall semester, despite the continuing coronavirus pandemic. The former lawmaker quickly pivoted from talking about the virus to talking about gun violence.

    Democrat Beto O’Rourke Tried to get the upper hand late Friday, mocking the gradual reopening of the Texas economy from coronavirus shutdowns as “Dangerous, dumb and weak.” But at least two Texas Republicans weren’t having it. U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz each fired back at O’Rourke, the former congressman from El Paso who failed to unseat Cruz in 2018 and then ran an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

    Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, profanely attacked President Trump's latest immigration order on social media Tuesday, rhetorically asking who the "f--k" Trump thinks is working on farms, processing plants, and other facilities. "Who the f--k do you think is working on the farms and feed lots, in the packing houses and processing plants at a time where we are struggling to feed ourselves?" O'Rourke asked on Twitter. "Who is in the kitchen? Who is picking, preparing, serving the food we eat and cleaning up afterwards?" The president announced late Monday he would sign an executive order to temporarily shut down immigration during the coronavirus pandemic, citing the need to...

    November 2020 will be known as the gun-control election. Tuesday night, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that Beto O’Rourke “will be the one who leads” his gun-control effort. “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15,” O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman and Democratic presidential candidate himself, famously promised in a debate in September. They are “weapons of war, designed to kill people efficiently on a battlefield,” he warned.

    Source: @RepKenBuck/Screenshot Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) had a simple message for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and failed candidate Beto O'Rourke: If they want to start confiscating AR-15s from law-abiding gun owners, then they can try and take the one that hangs up in his Washington, D.C. office. "I have a message for Joe Biden and Beto OÂ’Rourke, if you want to take everyoneÂ’s AR-15s in America, why donÂ’t you swing by my office in Washington, D.C. and start with this one," Buck said as he took the AR-15 off of the wall.

    Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas), who dropped out of the presidential race in November, plans to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden's 2020 bid on Monday, The New York Times reported, citing two Democratic officials familiar with his plans. The move comes as a host of Democrats work to position Biden as the moderate alternative to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the self-identified democratic socialist who has emerged as the front-runner to win the Democratic nomination. Following Biden's decisive victory in South Carolina over the weekend, both former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) bowed out...

    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...

    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...

It didn’t prove to be any more compelling than his other “ideas.” O'Rourke started his campaign on a strong note with more than $6 million raised on the first day, but he was never able to consistently poll above more than 1% or 2%, leaning heavily on proposals for stricter gun control, more liberal abortion laws, and punitive taxes for churches that do not endorse gay marriage. – WE There’s a winning platform that will rally the heartland.So reluctantly Beto the very White Hispanic announced last...
