More News For You

Former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke suddenly ended his campaign Friday after allegedly sending out an email to his supporters stating that he will not be running for office in 2020.

“I am announcing that my service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee.” -Beto O’Rourke

O’Rourke also added that he won’t be throwing in a bid to be a Senate candidate for Texas.

“Though it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully,” O’Rourke said.

“My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee. Acknowledging this now is in the best interests of those in the campaign; it is in the best interests of this party as we seek to unify around a nominee; and it is in the best interests of the country,” he added.

He tweeted, “I am grateful to all the people who made up the heart and soul of this campaign. You were among the hundreds of thousands who made a donation, signed up to volunteer or spread the word about this campaign and our opportunity to help decide the election of our lifetime.”
O’Rourke also tweeted, “Let us continue to fearlessly champion the issues and causes that brought us together. Whether it is ending the epidemic of gun violence or dismantling structural racism or successfully confronting climate change, we will continue to organize and mobilize and act.”

Maybe threatening our constitutional right to bear arms wasn’t working out so well for him and he is tucking his tail and admitting defeat. I think I speak for everyone when I say good riddance.
