Beto O'Rourke Announces: Does He Have the Right Values?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Yonnie3 (a host of the Video & Multimedia forum).

Beto O'rourke announces his run for President!

Many progressives are wondering if the Texan shares the same core values that helped Democratic politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Omar Ilhan and Rashida Tlaib win the House for the Democratic party.

Is Beto Progressive? Will he support things like Medicare for all and what does his past say about what kind of presidential candidate he will make?

Will the Democratic Primary be a proving ground for progressive values?

What do you think Beto O'rourke joining the other democratic politicians running for President and can Beto beat Donald Trump?

1. I care about whether he can beat Trump.

Trump is an existential threat and he has to be gotten rid of or we're screwed. Quibbling over whether a candidate checks all the proper progressive boxes is nothing but narcissistic ideological navel-gazing right now, and it will be useless if not downright destructive. I will support the candidate who can pants Trump, steal his lunch money and stuff him in his locker. If that's Beto, great. If it's Harris or Warren or Biden or Sanders or Booker or... or... that's great, too. Fuck ideology. We can worry about that after we reclaim the White House.
