O’Rourke Forced to Stall Campaign with Bacterial Infection

Democrat Beto O’Rourke cannot afford any bumps in the road during this campaign to take out Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Abbott has about a seven-point lead against O’Rourke and the clock is ticking.

That lead will likely grow now, as O’Rourke has been sidelined after being diagnosed with a “bacterial infection.”

Sit It Out

O’Rourke has been trying to barnstorm the state to get some momentum.

He is already up against it, as there are simply not enough liberal pockets throughout the state for a statewide Democrat win.

Getting sidelined like this will hurt his chances even more.

O’Rourke broke the news to his supporters, stating, “After feeling ill on Friday, I went to Methodist Hospital in San Antonio where I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection.

“The extraordinary team there — from custodians to nurses and doctors — gave me excellent care and attention, including IV antibiotics and rest.”

He added, “While my symptoms have improved, I will be resting at home in El Paso in accordance with the doctors’ recommendations.

“I am sorry to have had to postpone events because of this, but promise to be back on the road with you as soon as I am able.”

As of August 19, Governor Abbott was leading O’Rourke 49.3 to 40.4.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
