Texas Gubernatorial Candidate O’Rourke Raises $2 Million in 24 Hours

The liberal money is already pouring in for two-time loser Beto O’Rourke.

After announcing his run for governor, O’Rourke reportedly raised a whopping $2 million for his run.

However, my best guess is that this is a lot of out-of-town money hoping to flip Texas blue.

Should Be Illegal

O’Rourke tried to make a splash earlier in the week by stating that this election would be about the people of Texas.

That was his answer when he was asked if Joe Biden would be on the campaign trail.

My response was that if O’Rourke truly wanted this to be about Texans and did not want help on the campaign trail, then he should disavow all campaign donations not coming directly from Texans.

The problem with out-of-state donations for elections, at least in my opinion, is that money comes in from people outside the state who have no say in how the state (or city) should be run.

Look no further than the influence George Soros has had on local elections around the country by dropping massive seven-figure checks on liberals running for office.

O’Rourke touted the $2 million raised over the 24-hour period was a record “for any Democratic gubernatorial candidate for the first 24 hours.”

He further stated that it was the most raised in the “first 24 hours of any campaign in 2021.”

But, again, how much money came from outside PACs and donors and how much of that money came from Texans.

O’Rourke tried to make an appeal statewide when he ran for Senator, and he was beaten by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Even though O’Rourke became the media’s darling and deep-pocketed liberals around the country, Cruz still beat him by 2.6 percent.

The race was closer than most expected, but, for the most part, Beto only won in known liberal strongholds in the state.

When you look at the state map for the election, save the very south of the state and a few counties to the west, everything was red.

O’Rourke tried to parlay that into a presidential bid, but he was never a factor.

Now he wants to try to take a run at the governor’s office, but I don’t see it happening.

Regardless of who gets the nod on the right, there is simply no way O’Rourke beats them heads-up in a gubernatorial election, irrespective of how much money he raises.

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.
