On Monday, the Dallas Morning News reported, “Since July 1, 2021, Abbott has raised $83.6 million and O’Rourke $77.3 million.”
In 2018, O’Rourke spent $80 million to lose a U.S. Senate race in Texas to Republican Ted Cruz.
In 2020, O’Rourke squandered $13 million to lose the Democrat presidential primary.
That’s $170 million to lose three elections.
“Man, I was born to be in it,” O’Rourke notoriously claimed about the political arena on the cover of Vanity Fair back in 2018. That boast didn’t age well.
