Posted on 11/06/2018 8:55:21 PM PST by conservative98
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fended off Democrat challenger Robert Francis ORourke to win re-election in a high-profile Senate race Tuesday, but establishment media pundits, Hollywood celebrities, and liberal activists did not lose hope they had now moved on to dreams of Beto 2020.
Cruz finished a surprising second in the 2016 Republican presidential primary and began the Senate race as a prohibitive favorite. However, ORourke visited fiercely conservative parts of the state that his party had long since given up on, while shattering fundraising records despite shunning donations from outside political groups and pollster advice. Cruz argued that his opponents support for gun control and universal health care were too liberal for the Lone Star State.
ORourke shot down similar suggestions Monday on the campaign trail and pledged not to run for president.
Below is a round-up of Beto 2020 buzz via Twitter, which including actress Alyssa Milano, NBCs John Harwood, and CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza:

Beto lost? Thats ok. Now he can run for President.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) November 7, 2018
If he somehow gets the nomination, he will be as much of a sacrificial lamb as Walter Mondale was in 1984. Trump will eat this beta male for breakfast.
Master Beto.... yea right.
vote w/ rifles
Oh sht, our Trudeau
And I look like the doofus that I am.
IMHO, Beto 2020 is a stretch beyond comprehension.
I would actually pay to watch that on Pay-per-view.
Bring it on, Beta.
He needs to fix that gin blossom before 2020.
Stupid idiots, the senate race won’t be up until 2024, unless he plans to run for dog catcher....
Yeah, let the loser run for president.
He can’t be a true Kennedy type until he leaves a blond in a pond.
What the hell kinda name is Beto? What a frickin weirdo.
If it looks like a Kennedy, votes like a Kennedy, and drinks & drives like a Kennedy, then it probably *is* a Kennedy.
Now, he just needs to drown a girl in a car crash an he’ll be perfect for the demonrats.
Alyssa Milano has to be one of the dumbest moonbats in LA, and that’s saying something.
The dem 2020 field will likely start off with at least 20 RAT hopefuls. Trump will beat any of them in a landslide.
I agree. The only real reason He was close in the lost to Cruz in TX was because Cruz truly isnt a likable guy and money was pouring in for Beto from all over the Dems hemisphere. The only thing about the Mondale comparison that will be off is the fact that Mondale won Minnesota and Beto will not win TX
