Bumbling Beto Looks to Bounce Back with 2020 ‘Reintroduction’

The following article, Bumbling Beto Looks to Bounce Back with 2020 ‘Reintroduction’, was first published on Flag And Cross.

It is becoming easier and easier to feel sorry for the 2020 democrats.

That’s not to say that we necessarily wish them success in their endeavors, but the electoral situation over on the left leaves a whole lot to be desired.  Not only are the dems crowding their own presidential field to the point of voter exhaustion, but their far-and-away frontrunner is still dealing with 7 instances of inappropriate behavior toward women.

In other words, the left certainly has their work cut out for them if they want to remain relevant in 2020.

That’s why one candidate is looking to “reintroduce” himself after taking a dive in the polls.

Beto O’Rourke barreled into the 2020 presidential race with breakneck energy and a fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants campaign style that saw him leap atop tables to address overflow crowds with the organic, off-the-cuff candor that had made him a Texas sensation.

But since his mid-March campaign launch, the buzz surrounding the former congressman has evaporated. Competing in a massive field of Democratic White House hopefuls, O’Rourke has sagged in the polls. He’s made few promises that resonated or produced headline-grabbing moments, instead driving around the country meeting with voters at mostly small events.

In a tacit recognition that this approach isn’t working, O’Rourke is planning to try again, taking a hands-on role in staging a “reintroduction” ahead of next month’s premier Democratic presidential debate. As he finalizes his plans, O’Rourke has entered an intentional “quiet period” to build out campaign infrastructure, according to an adviser who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the campaign’s strategy.

Beto, like many others in the democratic field, was eclipsed by Joe Biden’s late and long-awaited arrival to the race.  This reintroduction is likely nothing more than a gamble of timing for O’Rourke, whose political future may depend on what happens over the course of the next few weeks.
