The following article, Beto O’Rourke Hints About Potential 2020 VP Running Mate, & She’s Also A Failed Candidate, was first published on Flag And Cross.
What are the odds a failed Senate candidate and a failed gubernatorial candidate team up to take on President Trump and Vice President Pence in 2020?
Maybe not as far-fetched as it seems.
If Beto O’Rourke nabs the Democrat nomination, he may choose Georgia flag-burner Stacey Abrams as his running mate.

There are some things you just don’t say because they are so unbelievably untrue that it makes you sound like an ignoramus.
Robert Francis O’Rourke has yet to learn that.
During a recent speech, the 2020 contender compared America’s immigration laws to slavery.
Like a good Democrat, Beto refuses to acknowledge (let alone accept) the fact that America is the most generous nation on earth.
He also fails to note that the United States will no longer be taken advantage of under President Trump.
O’Rourke couldn’t defeat Ted Cruz to win a seat from Texas in the United States Senate, yet he believes he can take down President Trump in 2020.
Although he has the name recognition and an influx of cash, O’Rourke is almost certain to lose the Democrat Party nomination to either Senator Bernie Sanders or former Vice President Joe Biden (once he eventually enters the race).
Now, Beto’s campaign just lost two top aides.
From The Hill:
Two aides to former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) have reportedly departed his 2020 presidential campaign, an O’Rourke spokesperson told BuzzFeed News on Saturday.
Becky Bond, a top adviser to O’Rourke, and her deputy, Zack Malitz, have both left the campaign. The two worked on O’Rourke’s competitive 2018 Texas Senate bid against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
Bond noted, “Launching a presidential campaign without a big staff or even a campaign manager was no easy feat and it took everyone pitching in. We’re proud to have been part of the team of deeply dedicated staff and volunteers who nearly pulled off a historic upset in the 2018 Texas Senate race and broke records launching Beto’s campaign for the presidency.”
Beto recently compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich.
From Free Beacon:
Former Texas representative Beto O’Rourke, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, on Thursday compared President Donald Trump to the Third Reich, referring to the regime of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler who presided over the Holocaust.
O’Rourke spoke at a campaign event in Carroll, Iowa, earlier in the morning, where he reflected on the times he went to elementary schools around Valentine’s Day and delivered cards from the students to veterans.
O’Rourke noted, after a Mexican-American girl apparently asked him why Trump didn’t like her, “What is that doing to her head and to her perception of herself and what she’s able to contribute this country, when the president of the United States has called Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals? He then went on to call asylum seekers animals and an infestation. Now we would not be surprised if in the Third Reich other human beings were described as an infestation, as a cockroach or a pest that you would want to kill.”
Where does this guy get off?
