Former Texas Democrat congressman Beto O’Rourke announced Friday he is withdrawing from the 2020 presidential race, telling supporters “it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully.”
Mere weeks after boasting that “H*** yes, I’m going to take your AR-15s”, Democratic primary voters decided that Beto was not going to take anything including the nomination. And just like that, Beto went bye-bye. But the real story is how Creepy Joe Biden is in fourth place behind (pardon the pun) gay mayor Pete Buttigieg. For Biden, a former United States vice president, to be behind newbie gay mayor Pete is the proverbial handwriting on the wall, his run is also done.
The really interesting thing is that none of the candidates still in the running will be able to beat Donald Trump in a head to head battle, so expect the current impeachment hoax frenzy to continue unabated at full speed. That’s the real plan the Democrats have for beating Trump, in fact, it’s their only plan.
Beto O’Rourke drops out of 2020 presidential race
FROM FOX NEWS: Beto O’Rourke entered the race in March to great fanfare after nearly defeating Texas incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz in the 2018 midterms but struggled to gain traction in the massive Democratic primary field.
Beto O’Rourke was in Iowa, ahead of a planned appearance at an event in Des Moines, when he announced his exit from the race. On Friday, an emotional O’Rourke addressed a group of supporters after the news broke. “This has been the honor of my lifetime,” he told them. “I love you all and I know that I’ll be seeing you down the road.”
President Trump reacted to the news by tweeting Friday, “Oh no, Beto just dropped out of race for President despite him saying he was ‘born for this.’ I don’t think so!”
O’Rourke sought to make gun control a top issue in his campaign, most notably after the Aug. 3 mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso. He went so far as to embrace the confiscation of certain firearms, memorably saying in a September debate, “Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15.” READ MORE
Warren holds slim lead over Sanders in Iowa, Biden in fourth: poll
A new poll shows a tight race in Iowa, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) leading the early voting state and former Vice President Joe Biden slipping to fourth.
The New York Times–Siena College poll released Friday showed Warren with 22 percent support from likely Democratic caucus goers, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) with 19 percent, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) with 18 percent and Biden with 17 percent. All four fall close to the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
No other candidate was near the top four, who were distantly trailed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) with 4 percent, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) with 3 percent and entrepreneur Andrew Yang with 3 percent.
The survey is among a series of recent polls showing Warren leading the field in Iowa. A RealClearPolitics average of polls showed the senator ahead of the former vice president by an average of 5 percentage points Friday morning.
Buttigieg’s rise in the poll puts him much closer to the front-runners in Iowa than in national polls. He is in fourth place in the nationwide RealClearPolitics average of polls, trailing Sanders by 9 points. READ MORE
