One of the more polarizing figures in this presidential race is no more.
Just moments ago, O’Rourke announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States has been suspended.
Through a series of tweets, O’Rourke stated:
“Our campaign has always been about seeing clearly, speaking honestly, and acting decisively.
“In that spirit: I am announcing that my service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee.
“I am grateful to all the people who made up the heart and soul of this campaign.
“You were among the hundreds of thousands who made a donation, signed up to volunteer or spread the word about this campaign and our opportunity to help decide the election of our lifetime.
“Let us continue to fearlessly champion the issues and causes that brought us together.
“Whether it is ending the epidemic of gun violence or dismantling structural racism or successfully confronting climate change, we will continue to organize and mobilize and act.”
Doomed from the Start
If we are being honest, Beto was doomed for failure before he ever started.
His biggest claim to fame in politics was losing to Ted Cruz in the last Texas Senate election.
He was a man filled with a hypocritical and controversial past as well as simply being overmatched.
While other candidates were publishing agenda policies, he was standing on tables railing about Trump.
Ultimately, his failure is America’s gain, because this man simply and without a doubt was not fit to be president on so many levels.
Goodbye and good riddance, Beto!
