Rapidly fading 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke has vowed to "reintroduce himself" to American voters in recent days; bizarrely broadcasting his haircut on social media.
One adviser says O'Rourke has entered an intentional "quiet period" lately, concentrating on building out campaign infrastructure.
"Beto stop apologizing. Do not apologize for being in Vanity Fair". "Do not apologize for being white, do not apologize for being privileged".
"Yeah, I think it reinforces that perception of privilege", O'Rourke told the co-hosts of ABC's The View, explaining that the perception that it created flew in the face of the very real discrimination that women and people of color experience in the United States.
Candidates like Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Beto O'Rourke are refocusing their campaigns to counter the new frontrunner.Читайте также: ‘Now our watch is ended’: history-making ‘Game of Thrones’ wraps

During his "View" appearance, meant to be a "reboot" of sorts, O'Rourke suggested he would be willing to make Abrams his running mate if he won the Democratic nomination. "They don't live on Twitter", Scarborough said. Ted Cruz in deep red Texas, it was a huge win for Democrats and progressives looking for a successor to President Barack Obama: a charismatic, affable candidate able to excite young voters and grassroots activists.
There are now 23 Democrats running to be the party's nomination to take on Trump next year, and there are prospects for several others to join the race in the coming months.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
