[Ed. – It’s hard to know what to believe about this.  There is a kind of Beto obsession out there with a certain demographic, although it’s one I don’t understand. But I’m not so sure the Beto-obsessed are really people who have $6.1 million to spring in 24 hours. Something about Beto’s money draw has always smelled phony and manipulated to me. Guy’s just too weird.]

One great question surrounding Beto O’Rourke has been whether he could replicate the massive fundraising totals he mustered in the Texas Senate race last year.

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). “It’s not the same as when Jeb Bush did it, where he had everyone lined up when they all donated. This guy, as far as I know, didn’t make a bunch of calls. Didn’t have a bunch of people that were pounding people.”
