Beto O'Rourke targets South Texas in bid to win back Democratic voters he'll need to beat Gov. Greg

Beto O’Rourke targets South Texas in bid to win back Democratic voters he’ll need to beat Gov. Greg Abbott in 2022

by Patrick Svitek, Texas Tribune


MCALLEN — In the first days of his campaign for governor, Beto O’Rourke made a beeline to this southernmost corner of the state, saying it was no mistake he was choosing to start his run in a part of Texas where Democrats have their work cut out for them after the 2020 election.

His supporters know it, too.

“We are being attacked at all ends,” Amanda Elise Salas said as she introduced him here Wednesday night. “This is a Democratic area, and there is no way we are gonna let Republicans come in here and take over.”

“They’re knocking at our door,” Mario Saenz, a Democratic precinct chair from Brownsville, said afterward. “We cannot let them in.”

1. K & R Thank you Beto. In every dark threat in history emerges a common man to lead the good people

Beto didn't have to step back into this role, yet here he is.
Sending Beto the very best as he leads the good people of Texas in this dire & threatening time.
There is a far better future for us all on the horizon.

5. As much as I like Beto the gun comment is going to sabotage his efforts in Texas

It will be on a loop 24/7 saying he wants to take your guns in Texas.

And Tex ass is Tex ass.
