Skip to comments.The Democrats Who Stand a Chance in 2020 [Beto Mania!!!]
Posted on 11/08/2018 6:45:50 AM PST by C19fan
The 2018 midterms were hugely significant on their own terms but they also serve as prologue for the Big Show: 2020, a presidential election as critical as any in American history. Thats why its not too early to start mulling over it.
Decent people around the world can hold out for another 24 monthsespecially with the check on President Trump now provided by a Democratic House. But six more years of exposure to Agent Orange should he win reelection would be a world-historical disaster.

I understand, and I could be wrong, that Wisconsin, PA and Michigan elected dem governors.
A. Did they already have dem governors?
B. Since Trump is an unusual case (populist as well as conservative) will it really help dems at all to have govs there?
Thanks for your insights
Letting an establishment Democrat “knee-cap” and lock out the outsider in the primaries didn’t work out too well in 2016 for them.
However, the last time they had a likeable or charismatic personality as an upstart win the primaries, they took the WhiteHouse for 8 years.
So the question is, has the DNC reformed it’s corruption? Lets hope they haven’t.
But six more years of exposure to Agent Orange should he win reelection would be a world-historical disaster.
Six more years of Trump would be a disaster for socialists around the world including snowflake Jonathan Alter, who obviously has full blown TDS!
did any Texas voters believe he was other than Irish? Or at least not Hispanic?
LOL he can’t win senator race so they want to run him for president?
This reminds me of the “Marco Rubio” enthusiasm among the media a few years back.
Despite looking like a high school kid the news stations were All Marco, All the time.
I could never understand it.
I saw a freeper get fooled.
What post a stupid garbage here? What has Beta male ever ran before except for office?
Abraham Lincoln will have a talk with you. LOL
I figure I am not a decent person by his reckoning, so there's no reason for me to continue reading.
As the late Jim White of KMOX radio in St. Louis used to say, "God save me from the 'good' people."
If the DNC throws its support behind Beto O’Rourke (a white male) early in the nomination process, that’s not going to go over well with supporters of Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Elizabeth Warren.
PA already had a Dem governor—Tom Wolf, a York businessman, who defeated the much-disliked Tom Corbett (issues were more image than substance) in 2014. His opponent this race, Scott Wagner, had some baggage from his prior voting record, as well as having made his money in garbage hauling (honest work, but easy to smear).
It didn’t help that the Dem Lieutenant Governor candidate was John Fetterman, the tatted-giant who was formerly Braddock (suburb of Pittsburgh) mayor—he had recognition and a degree of respect in Western PA. Most of us out here had never heard of Bartos, the Republican, before.
They’ll stump for whoever the 2020 Dem candidate is, but in the end, I don’t know that it will matter. Wolf was already here in 2016.
Imagine this guy trying to talk foreign policy hes a light weight what has he done before this? at least their Mocha God was a senator.
The exposure and the “broad” financial support (actually a consortium of billionaires from California) were supposed to be the magic window to showcase Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, the fake Hispanic, as the new face of the Democrat party.
Losing the Senatorial election was only a temporary setback for those who have ambitious plans for the “Beto male”.
Progressive punk rock, yeah, that’s the ticket!
You have to keep in mind that the left/liberals/media, are intellectually shallow, and have the emotional maturity of a 13-year old. Then it makes sense.
Right now I don't see any Democrat who can beat Trump in 2020 - but I also don't see any any Republican who can carry his torch forward in 2024. The "good conservatives" today are all horribly charisma-challenged.
Robert can put “Almost Senator” on his resume.
Mich had a GOP Governor who was term limited. We now have a Rat Governor and a Lesbian AG who said “anyone who has a penis is disqualified from prosecuting a Me Too allegation”. It is a miracle Trump carried Mich, we are infested with brain washed union a-holes.
