Beto O'Rourke says Iowa visits help him improve

DES MOINES — For many political candidates, the size of the media entourage following them around Iowa in the months leading up to the caucuses is a measure of their success.

By that benchmark, the Republican National Committee mused, Iowans might be “witnessing the beginning of the end” of Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s 2020 presidential dreams.

But O’Rourke said he wasn’t discouraged that the media horde following him on his recent four-day, 15-event tour of Iowa was smaller than that during his initial trip to the first-in-the-nation caucus state.

“That first morning in Keokuk, if there were 60 people in the room, half of them were members of the press,” O’Rourke said last Sunday after a rally at University of Iowa in Iowa City. “I like that the ratio has changed a little bit as we’ve moved on.”

It is nice to have a candidate who listens to people and crafts policy with their input instead of lecturing them about their own 1960's ideology.

1. Beto is probably the best overall candidate Democrats have

 

He has incredible charisma, is so positive, a message of unity, doesn't attack other candidates (and won't turn off their supporters), listens to and really connects with voters...and he is incredible at responding to difficult questions on the fly. He's very knowledgeable too. That will help in in debates.
