BETO THROWS IN THE TOWEL

Yesterday’s blockbuster report on extreme liberal Beto O’Rourke throwing in the towel on fundraising in Texas shows what we’ve already known: Beto is too liberal for Texas and his base are coastal elitists, not average Texans.”  – Mark Miner, Communications Director

O’Rourke Hired Cecile Richards To Be His Finance Chair Because He Wants A “Finance Chair Who Appeals To The Coastal Elites” As Texans “Find His Stance On Guns And The Border To Be Too Extreme.” “Over in Texas, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke has managed to distract onlookers from a shakeup in his campaign. Right as he trumpeted that he was bringing on former Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards to be his national finance chairwoman, his finance director on the ground in Texas announced that she was out. Don’t mark this as a desperate shakeup from a candidate who is only seven points down from incumbent Greg Abbott, but rather a sign that Beto is going back to his roots. Instead of trying to shake the trees with disaffected locals, who find his stance on guns and the border to be too extreme, he now has a finance chair who appeals to the coastal elites and who will prop up the Democratic Party darling’s campaign.” (Tara Palmeri, “The Washington Mall,” Puck News, 5/19/22)

Over in Texas, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke has managed to distract onlookers from a shakeup in his campaign. Right as he trumpeted that he was bringing on former Planned Parenthood boss Cecile Richards to be his national finance chairwoman, his finance director on the ground in Texas announced that she was out. Don’t mark this as a desperate shakeup from a candidate who is only seven points down from incumbent Greg Abbott, but rather a sign that Beto is going back to his roots. Instead of trying to shake the trees with disaffected locals, who find his stance on guns and the border to be too extreme, he now has a finance chair who appeals to the coastal elites and who will prop up the Democratic Party darling’s campaign.

Will it work? And, if it doesn’t, will this be the third strike for a former congressman whose Gen X appeal may be fading? A campaign spokesperson said it’s not like Beto to care about losing for a third consecutive race. He’d rather go down fighting than be seen as a coward for not trying.
