Beto O'Rourke makes Sioux Center stop

Beto didn't change his message at all in this town hall. This willingness to show up and his ability to connect is exactly how he broke records in Texas and won the support of Independents and half a million Republicans. There is not a state that Beto can't complete in.

Jerald Mokros drove through the Saturday morning thunderstorm from his Sioux Falls, S.D. home to attend the O’Rourke town hall event.
The 18-year-old graduated high school this spring, and he plans to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this fall.

“I really like how he’s willing to compromise and work with anyone,” he said of O’Rourke. “It’s really nice to see someone who will actually work with both sides and get something done.”

Before this event, he favored President Donald Trump for 2020.

“I still kind of do, but if Beto did run against Trump, I don’t know,” he said, with a chuckle. “I’d have to wait. I do agree with Trump. If I could have voted in 2016, I would have voted for Trump. But Beto has definitely made it a hard choice.”

1. ""It's really nice to see someone who will actually work with both sides and get something done."

 

Nothing to do with Beto, BUT----THAT is a really, really naive statement about the state of affairs in congress.

2. That is why people are so angry and frustrated with politics

 

Because of the hyper-partisanship. This is the key to winning Independents and moderate Republicans and beating the bejesus out of Trump.

3. REPUBLICANS are "hyperpartisan."

 

Not the old, both sides are doing it propaganda.

5. I think you need to read what I wrote again

 

And then edit your comment. You're implying that I said something that I did not say.

6. At only 18 he was likely raised by idiots

 

And Beto most likely made sense to him. Just like kids that age who are raised by very religiously strict parents often grow up to reject religious zealot beliefs, the same is often true of politics. It's good that he was exposed to someone like Beto who has a gift of breaking through and connecting.
