Democratic presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke told a crown of would-be supporters in New Hampshire that he believed winning Texas in the 2020 presidential election was very doable, if he became his party’s nominee.
The bold statement followed an even bolder 24-hour fundraising total of $6.1 million raised, as the Progressive rising start began traversing the First Primary state shortly after announcing is presidential intentions.
“Yes, I think we can win Texas…I think we’ve proven that we know how to campaign. … We’ve listened to the stories our fellow Texans have told us. We’ve incorporated it in the way that we campaign and the way in which I wish to serve.”(BETO O’Rourke-Washington Examiner)
