Despite Everyman Image, O'Rourke Is Even Wealthier Than Cruz
The Odessa American ^ | October 11, 2018 | Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — With an unassuming air and a black Toyota Tundra he says was "the first new vehicle I've ever purchased," Beto O'Rourke has campaigned thousands of miles across Texas and risen to national prominence on a workaday image that aligns with his politics, but not his personal finances.

The son of a onetime Republican county judge and a longtime furniture store owner, the Democratic congressman from El Paso married into the family of one of his hometown's most prominent developers and has assembled real estate investments worth millions.

....Congress is rife with rich people, but O’Rourke had a 2015 net worth of about $9 million, ranking 51st out of 435 House members, according to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics. That’s more-than double the $3.8 million worth of his Republican opponent, Sen. Ted Cruz, who ranked 41st of 100 senators. O’Rourke and his family live in a hilltop, Hacienda-style, 4,700 square-foot home in El Paso, while Cruz, his wife and daughters have a well-appointed condo in an elegant corner of Houston.....

Beto may be wealthier than Ted Cruz, but is he as wealthy as Heidi, Ted’s wife. Heidi has two MBA degrees and has worked for at least three investment banks; Chase, Merrill Lynch, and Goldman Sachs.

Sickening how all these Communists are so filthy rich and they can use the money to buy office and ruin this country.

I don’t know anything about Heidi’s personality or ambitions, but she sounds well qualified enough to work at the White House should she wish to. She may not wish to, because they still have those two young children.

I don’t think POTUS would ask Heidi Cruz to be in his admin.

Who knows, though? Stranger things have happened.

Beto is a liar. He’s protected by the drive-by media. Cruz is going to win by 10.

“He groped me 28 years ago. I’m sending DiFi a letter.”

He groped me 29 years ago!
(it took him a year to finish)

That’s two accusations

A “climate” and a “pattern” of accusations have now been established!

(as that New Yorker woman said; the one who co-authored the Ronin Farrow piece on Kavenaugh accuser #2).

From your fingers to God’s eyes!

Nothing he portrays himself to be is real. He is a figment of the media’s invention!

So Richie Rich here is rich as hell and clearly lying about only buying used cars up till know. Unless he always drove classic Ferraris or his personal shopper usually buys his new cars for him.

And his daddy was Republican County Judge (I believe in Texas this is a quasi-County executive). Parenting is hard.

Hey, he’s a marrying gigolo just like John “I Was in Cambodia” Kerry” with his two wives. However his second wife came in 57 flavors. That would spice up anyone’s life, even Lurch’s.
