Beto ORourke Announces Presidential Bid

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke revealed that he plans to run for President of the United States via a text message sent to a local TV station.

KTSM reported that O’Rourke is officially launching his presidential campaign on Thursday morning, and that he gave them the exclusive information via a text message exchange between the station’s journalists and the failed senate candidate.

“I’m really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents,” O’Rourke said in the text. “It’s a big part of why I’m running. This city is the best example of this country at its best.”

Speculation on whether he would run for president has been discussed since his Senate loss to Ted Cruz in November. An appearance with Oprah and a February showdown in El Paso with President Donald Trump only added to the discussion.

This comes after O’Rourke promised Texans he would not use his new level of fame to run for president, telling a reporter “I’m not looking at 2020. In fact, I’m completely ruling that out. Not going to do that,” adding that regardless of whether he was elected to the senate he was not interested.

“Win or lose, I’m not running in 2020… The answer is no.”

In spite of his now-broken promise, there has been escalating speculation that O’Rourke intended to run for president over the last few months. Last year he quietly met with former President Barack Obama and his aids, who urged O’Rourke to run. Earlier in 2018, there were endless articles declaring O’Rourke to be the new Obama, frequently referring to him as the “White Obama.”

O’Rourke’s ticket may prove a challenge for radical leftists to overcome, as the candidate recently pledged not only to forego building a wall at the United States-Mexico border, but to actually dismantle the existing border barriers.

He also attempted to upstage President Donald J. Trump during a rally in El Paso, Texas with his own event. President Trump’s audience, speech, and music were so loud they could be heard from O’Rourke’s comparatively much smaller event, leading many online to mock O’Rourke’s pathetic attempt.

Also available at O’Rourke’s rally was an interesting circus side show, which allowed attendees to violently beat a piñata made to look like President Trump.

Young Americans for Trump.

Donald Trump secured a victory in Iowa’s Youth Straw Poll, with Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate announcing the results of the informal contest on Friday.

Trump won 55% of 31,000 participating students who attend 225 different schools across the state of Iowa. Biden won only 32%, with dark horse candidate Kanye West winning 9% of the straw poll vote.

The poll also questioned students as to Iowa’s Senate election, with incumbent Republican senator Joni Ernst winning 53% support. Democrat Theresa Greenfield won 38%.

This is a fun, hands-on learning experience that hopefully will create a lifelong interest in civics and elections for these students,” Secretary Pate said. “My thanks to everyone who participated and the teachers and school leaders across the state for organizing this event.

Democrats have expressed increasing confidence that they’re on the verge of winning Texas, Iowa, Ohio and other historically Republican states. If young voters vote for President Trump in anything close to the margin seen in the straw poll, they can frankly kiss such a prospect goodbye. Trump would win Iowa by a margin never before seen in the state if he secures 55% of Generation Z voters. However, the high school audience that participated in the poll didn’t query millennial voters.

There’s evidence to suggest that Trump has increased the appeal of the Republican Party to young voters, especially with Democrat Joe Biden doubling down on a campaign strategy of almost exclusively marketing his candidacy to traditionally conservative white senior voters.
