Move over Uncle Joe, there's a new kid in town.   This is the DEM's golden boy; their modern day JFK.   God help us. 

Two things; #1 I am hoping that the RNC is getting their act together and putting into play a system where they can greatly combat all the corruption and fraud that the DEMS will likely try. #2 I am hoping that the Trump campaign increases their ground game and recruits some new voters; otherwise, I don't see a win in his future.

Beto O'Rourke ready to 'push the button' on presidential campaign, source says

Former US Rep. Beto O'Rourke is ready to "push the button" to launch his presidential campaign, with the announcement expected to first come on social media, a source familiar with his plans told CNN.
Aware that the 2020 Democratic primary is quickly taking shape, O'Rourke is set to announce his candidacy this week, rather than launching an exploratory committee.
O'Rourke is in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, this week ahead of his first trip to Iowa on Saturday. On Monday, in a short video recorded outside his house, he wore a University of Northern Iowa cap as he urged students at the school to vote in the Democratic candidate in a state Senate special election.
A photographer was seen leaving O'Rourke's house late Tuesday morning, and a close team of aides who worked on his 2018 Senate had gathered in town.

Signs that an announcement is imminent had popped up on social media, as well. On Facebook, O'Rourke's page -- which had not paid for any advertisement since his failed bid to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz had ended -- began promoting more than 300 ads urging people to sign up to be the first to know whether he will run for president.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

The RNC needs to get their hands on that video of (real)Hispanic women cursing him out when he was on the city council in El Paso and he and his billionaire FIL plotted to take the property of the poor to develop. It was priceless. He sat there with his chin propped up looking like an idiot. I wonder if that's the night he got the DUI.

They also need to dig up the article that told about his stint as a nanny for a wealthy family after he got his degree and his band broke up. His father had to go to NYC to bring Robert Francis out of his funk. He does that a lot, getting into a funk.

The skate-boarding fool has accomplished nothing in his life. Daddy's no longer around to give him pep talks.

Given his herky-jerky twitchy movements, and nonsensical rhetoric, the nation may find this maroon hard to watch, as I do.

IMHO, he came dangerously close to beating Cruz.  A clear indication that the demographics in this country have changed.  I think either he or Castro will get the nomination.  Both will appeal to the younger generation and Castro especially to the Hispanic community. 

So ... what is Trump doing to attract new and/or younger voters??  Anyone??  Unless he can drum up some more voters, I don't see him winning in 2020.

I don't think they'll get the top spot.
But both will definitely be in-the-running for #2 on the ticket.

The folks here who tried to write O'Rourke off after he came this close to beating Ted Cruz... well... they're talkin' through their hats!

I guess the half a million illegal votes got him close.

That's just it.  Unless the GOP/RNC gets their act together and implements 'systems' to combat the DEMS fraud and corruption, the DEMS will steal elections. They were almost successful in FL during the past mid terms.   Keep in mind also with taxes rising in blue states, residents are moving to red states where the cost of living is more affordable.  That also changes the demographics BIGLY!

Unfortunately many of the refugees from $hithole blue states come to Texas and try to make it like the hell they fled.

Yep, and most vote DEM.  That's the problem.

O'Rourke to announce White House run Thursday morning: report
By John Bowden - 03/13/19 07:58 PM EDT

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) will reportedly announce a 2020 White House bid on Thursday.

The ex-congressman confirmed his plans to enter the race officially in a text message to El Paso NBC affiliate KTSM, which reported that O'Rourke will make his official announcement Thursday morning.

News of his definitive plans to run follow a Vanity Fair profile of O'Rourke published Wednesday in which he strongly hinted at a desire to pursue a presidential run.

“You can probably tell that I want to run,” he told Vanity Fair. “I do. I think I’d be good at it.”

This breaking news report will be updated.

Vanity Fair has a barf-inducing puff piece on Robert Francis- the man fresh off his self-indulgent navel-gazing vision quest. He's never accomplished a single thing in his life.

He's confirmed he's running.
Keep in mind he said repeatedly he wasn't going to run.  *****rollingeyes*****

Just posted on FB from the local paper. Certainly looks like he's running:

Quote
Former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke will be visiting Lee County on Thursday. The potential Democratic candidate for President will start his day at the Lost Canvas, 719 Main St. in Keokuk from 8-9 a.m. for a meet and greet. O'Rourke will then travel to Fort Madison where he will meet with school officials in a private event before stopping at Sub Arena, 2805 Ave. L, from 11:10 a.m. to about 11:45 or noon. O'Rourke ran for U.S. Senate for Texas in the last election and narrowly was defeated by Sen. Ted Cruz.

Ugh, that video. I can't stand it when people use hand gestures in time with what they're saying. Someone on Twitter suggested, in light of all the movement, he should have stopped taking the Ritalin when he reached adulthood.

I haven't been watching his spews.  Sounds like he has "Hannity's Waving."  I hate that too, and I always switch the channel after Tucker.
I will NOT comply.
