Robert Francis ‘Beto’ O’Rourke Hires Loser Andrew Gillum’s Communications Director

The losing U.S. Senate candidate chose a communications director from a losing gubernatorial race.

A 2020 presidential candidate recently hired the communications director of a failed 2018 gubernatorial candidate.

Geoff Burgan, who was the communications director for failed Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, is now on the campaign trail with Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, whose failed U.S. Senate campaign spent $80 million only to lose to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Burgan formerly worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

So far, Burgan’s strategy appears to be to play into O’Rourke’s goofy nature. Formerly known by the moniker Psychedelic Warlord, O’Rourke has played band gigs dressed in a skin-tight sheep costume, written poems about thirsting for cows to “provide milk,” and generally meandered around after his Senate loss, once live-streaming himself on Instagram during a visit to the dentist.

This morning, the candidate met with Art Cullen of the Storm Lake Times, during which O’Rourke pet a “doggo” who then apparently stole his coffee.

O’Rourke remains near the top of the polls, despite the fact that the “progressive” wing of the Democratic Party pushes further left and grapples with white male candidates. While outwardly railing against “wealth inequality,” a typical “progressive” trope, O’Rourke has been silent about his billionaire father-in-law.
