What's Next for Beto?

When Beto O’Rourke ended his presidential campaign Friday, it was only really relevant in Texas. O’Rourke was running eighth in the national polls, but in Texas he was still running second

What's Beto O'Rourke going to do now that he's no longer in the race for presidential candidacy? Rice Political Science professor Dr. Mark Jones says he thinks O'Rourke will truly not run for John Cornyn's Senate seat. “There already are 5 high quality candidates who have been running from six months to a year for this slot --- and they’re not going to go away when O’Rourke wants to parachute in. During his presidential bid, O’Rourke veered very sharply to the left and that probably made him un-electable in a statewide race in Texas.”

So, we ask again, what's he going to do? Says Jones, "If a democrat defeats President Trump in 2020 there could be a place for him in the new administration. Otherwise his wife is the daughter of a billionaire so I don’t think he’ll have a hard time making ends meet.”
