Beto O'Rourke's voting record is more conservative than the average Democrat's [View all]

[link:https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/12/21/18150359/beto-orourke-voting-record|



But the facts are the facts.

OíRourke (and Klobuchar) have voting records that are more conservative than the average Democratís, while Harris and Booker and Gillibrand and Warren and Sanders are more progressive than the average Democrat. So if youíre looking for someone with a progressive voting record, you have a bunch of choices. And if youíre looking for someone with a less progressive voting record, you also have a couple of choices. And if you think voting records arenít very important or informative, then youíre welcome to ignore all this.

But the reality is that OíRourke has a record thatís somewhat more conservative than that of most of his colleagues on Capitol Hill, and pointing that out isnít a nefarious conspiracy.




Posting this as a response to another thread that has devolved into "look who wrote it, a Sanders fan". Just because you don't like who wrote a piece, it doesn't change the facts. Fact is Beto O'Rourke isn't as progressive as some may think.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Bernie Sanders
