Beto O'Rourke Wants To Be Governor, Still Wants Your Guns - News/Talk 790 KFYO

Beto O'Rourke is reportedly planning on running for Governor of Texas. For Democrats, it is the hope of a comeback for O'Rourke, while some Republicans are licking their chops and ready to go after O'Rourke who moved to the left during his last campaign for office. According to Axios, O'Rourke has been making calls to allies seeking advice on his potential campaign. "We think he'll be our strongest candidate. We think he can beat Abbott, because he's vulnerable."

A recent poll showed that Governor Greg Abbott led Beto O'Rourke in a hypothetical matchup 42%-37%. Though in July another poll had Abbott up 45%-33% over O'Rourke. What they haven't brought up is that Beto O'Rourke is no longer seen by many as the O'Rourke who ran against Senator Ted Cruz.

In O'Rourke's failed Presidential campaign he moved much further left.

While O'Rourke's gun confiscation remarks may have played well among national Democrats, there is little evidence that it will do well for him in Texas, which is still a red state. With O'Rourke's views on guns, the border wall, energy production, and more exposed during his failed Presidential run, they will have plenty to attack O'Rourke with.
