Skip to comments.Beto O’Rourke For President In 2020? Defeat To Ted Cruz Increases Odds Of Run Against Donald Trump

Beto ORourke fell agonizingly short of becoming the first Democrat in a quarter of a century to win a statewide race in Texas but he may yet get a shot at an even bigger prize. ORourke, who was projected to lose to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz on Tuesday, had vowed that he would serve out his full six-year term in the Senate if victorious and would not run for president in 2020.
But a defeat frees him of those obligations. And given how close he got to unseating a Republican in the ruby-ed Lone Star State, he is sure to face loud calls from Democrats to run for the partys nomination for the White House. Indeed, those cries had begun even before the results in the race were final on Tuesday.

BETO must win something to be even considered Presidential material.
He spent 3 times the money that Cruz spent and still lost.
Yep, he’s a white man. In these days of Democrat identity politics, a heterosexual white male is at the bottom of the hierarchy.
Beto/Alexandria 2020! Cuter and dumber.
Spartacus will not let this happen.
They are going to have to throw a bucket of water on HilLIARy to melt her for that to happen.
Pelosi and the dems running the house for the next 2 years increases the chances of her running again.
REMEMBER: The horrible economy over odumbass’s term started TWO YEARS EARLIER when pelosi took over as speaker.
That sleazy piece of sh!t will self-immolate well before then.
Newsweek is trying to spin their hero’s loss as a good thing. I agree with them for once - every democrat loss this year was a great victory for America.
Beta would not have come close if Cruz had stuck to being a good Senator from Texas.
His ambitions almost cost him his Senate seat.
Beat has no chance to be nominated in 2020.
He is also a transvestite.
That catapults him to the top in California and the northeast.
Beto is married to a billionairess. She is a horrible leftard urging him on..
I always felt he was going for the RFK look.
Please. Please. Pretty please.
Beto.......another “rising star” in the Rat Party. They got more “rising stars” then the Lord has in the milky way. Kamala, Brooks, Gavin, Garcetti, Beto, the guy on the corner. Funny to watch..........they are such children.
He has to wait his turn. He can’t cut in line ahead of candidates that actually win elections.
Beto F-Bomb O’Rourke for president? LOL!!!!
Beta had big Hollywood money infusing into his war chest and outspent Beautiful Ted. Cruz overlooked Beta and if weren’t for DJT, Beta would have sprung the upset. Being competitive in a senate race against a sleepwalking candidate is not the same as running against Donald Magnimus in 2020.
But let Newsweek and other liberal loving media advance the Beta 2020 narrative.
...cuz being a LOSER makes you so much more viable as a canaidate.
