Beto O’Rourke is making yet another attempt at running for higher office.
After failing in his bids for Senate and President, he’s now running for Governor.
And Beto’s desperate campaign just forced him to stab Biden in the back with one shocking comment.
Texas Democrat Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is making a desperate play to become the first Democratic governor of Texas since the 1990s.
But after two failed attempts to run for higher office, first as a U.S. Senator against Ted Cruz in 2018, and then for President in 2020, Beto has his work cut out for him.
What’s more, this year is not expected to be a good year for any Democrat running for office.
Decades of history suggest that Democrats will actually get blown out of the water in many otherwise competitive races because of a combination of midterm trends, political engagement between both parties, and conservative dissatisfaction with the direction Joe Biden is taking the United States.
To make matters even worse for Beto, the inflation crisis is also sapping Democrat strength across much of the country as voters increasingly blame the Left for creating this entirely avoidable disaster.
All of these factors suggest Beto is a serious underdog when it comes to the Texas gubernatorial race in November, which could explain why the knives are beginning to come out for Joe Biden.
And in one shocking comment, Beto himself drove a metaphorical dagger into Biden’s career after he slammed the Democrats for his role in creating one of the largest immigration crises in Texas’ history.
Fox News reports, “Beto O’Rourke, who is facing off against Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in November’s election, said that the rightward shift of Latino voters in recent years is partly due to a disregard for the demographic by Democrats.”
And Beto’s words could not have been more blunt against Biden.
“Candidate Biden didn’t spend a dime or day in the Rio Grande Valley or really anywhere in Texas, for that matter, once we got down in the homestretch of the general election,” O’Rourke said while on the campaign trail in Austin. “You got to be locking eyeballs with the people that you want to fight for and serve and whose votes that you want to win.”
To add insult to injury, Beto even went so far as to praise Donald Trump, saying that Trump had offered a “very strong, compelling economic message” to court the votes to Hispanic voters, who ended up voting for him in large enough numbers to keep Texas in the Republican column in 2020.
In just one comment, Beto effectively repudiated Biden’s entire campaign apparatus and his policies, while simultaneously offering praise for Biden’s fiercest political rival.
Of course, none of this can hide Beto’s own Left-wing record of supporting Joe Biden lockstep in every way imaginable, nor does it give Beto any sort of credit for these very policies which he spent a lifetime opposing.
But it does signal that Beto’s campaign has become so desperate that he’s having to resort to using Republican talking points to try and dig his political career out of the ditch.
