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.

  1. I don’t see how anyone could take that idiot seriously, going straight to his gun-grabbing plans first thing. If he lacks the intelligence to grasp that that won’t fly in a state like Texas, he, like the delusions of turning the state into another blue s**t hole, is going nowhere.

    1. That kind of money in 24 hours for a 2 time loser had to be out of state donors like that old communist fart soros. Beto is and always will be a loser because his policies are dead wrong!

  2. You might get some business on the left-wing sites, since those that attain all of their “knowledge” from watching TV know nothing and tend to be extremely gullible.

  3. Its what happens when you california texas. That being said I do believe the others have it right – follow the money and it leads right back to soros – money laundering at its finest

  6. What is this white prividleged judges son, who has been rescued from violations of law and a reported felon going to do with these “donations”.

  7. Georgie Is At It Again ! But God is Still In Control ! Liberals Are Going To Go Down !
    Isaiah 54 v. 17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
