[Ed. – Don’t forget that he’s also white, providing another reason for libs to be bitter about all the attention he’s getting.]
This is going to be fun.
Gail Collins at the NY Times seems to sum up the bitterness many liberal women seeing the glowing coverage Beto received when he announced his presidential campaign:
Why do you think he’s getting so much attention? Certainly none of the announced women candidates are creating this much stir. Elizabeth Warren has been shoving out policy positions. Kamala Harris has been campaigning like crazy. Warren, Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar are all acting senators. O’Rourke is a former member of the House of Representatives who lost a race to Ted Cruz, one of the least appealing human beings on the face of the earth.
Politico collected some more bitter clinger comments, ‘Not one woman got that kind of coverage’: Beto backlash begins:
Since announcing her 2020 run, Elizabeth Warren has dispensed three major policy proposals, held 30 campaign events and visited nearly a dozen states.
Since announcing his 2020 run, Beto O’Rourke has made one visit to Iowa, where he vaguely outlined his positions,including from atop a cafe counter.
Guess who’s getting the star treatment.
