Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke has finally seen the writing on the wall and dropped out of the 2020 race last week.
Though it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully. My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee. Acknowledging this now is in the best interests of those in the campaign; it is in the best interests of this party as we seek to unify around a nominee; and it is in the best interests of the country.
Beto was getting desperate towards the end, coming up with proposals that would make the Founding Fathers turn in their graves, and make the rest of us shake our head and pity how pathetic he was.
