In the race for Senator in TX don't be so sure people were actually voting for Beto O'Rourke as much as they were voting against Cruz who is one of the least liked people in Congress. I have strong reservations about Beto and think he is more of a wolf in sheep's clothing. The fossil fuel industry in TX wasn't afraid of O'Rourke because they had him in their pocket so why should they care if it ends up with Cruz or O'Rourke, they both sold their souls to the fossil fuel industry.
O'Rourke signed a pledge to not accept fossil fuel donations over $200 but it was discovered that not only did he accept donations over $200 from the fossil fuel industry and violated the pledge he signed but he did not return those donations.
O'Rourke sends off an alarm with me because he is talking in generalities telling folks to wait till later to hear what he has to say about where he stands on the issues. One would think that if a person was going to run for office, especially that of the presidency, they would have their agenda and platform ready. This makes me think Beto might be waiting to see where his rivals may stand on the issues and he may cut and paste their position bits of their statements on the issues and problem solving and turn it into his own. This may not mean O'Rourke really supports those issues as much as it just sounds good. One thing O'Rourke needs to understand and that is we want real answers not some bullsh*t he think sounds good.
I personally think O'Rourke is a bit of a con artist and is nothing near the Progressive he wants to believe he is. If you actually look at his voting record you might wonder if this guy is even a Democrat let alone a Progressive. I hope reporters ask him where he plans on getting his funding for his campaign and asks about all that money he raised from the fossil fuel industry he swore he would not accept.
O'Rourke seems to be very charismatic among the younger voters with his generalities and these younger voters need to find out who this man really is and who it will be that he will ultimately support in the end.
