LOL: O'Rourke raises $6.7 million to lose over 70 Counties

"As a dog returns to his own vomit,
So a fool repeats his folly."
Proverbs 26:11

[Note: Robert Francis O'Rourke is so irrelevant that there's a big part of us that thinks we shouldn't 'punch down,' but it's a slow news day and this story is hilarious.]

The most overhyped story of the day:
Beto O'Rourke says he raised staggering $6.7M in first quarter of 2018


U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso, raised over $6.7 million for his U.S. Senate bid in the first quarter of 2018, according to his campaign, a staggering number that poses a new category of threat to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz.

The haul is easily O'Rourke's biggest fundraising quarter yet, more than double his next-closest total for a three-month period. It also is more than any Democratic Senate candidate nationwide took in last quarter, O'Rourke's campaign said.

Cruz has not released his first-quarter fundraising numbers yet, but O'Rourke's $6.7 million total is on a different level than his previous hauls, which ranged from $1.7 million to $2.4 million. Those alone were good enough to outraise Cruz for three of the last four reporting periods.
Of course, these were "Beto's" actual election results during that time:

[Note II: Also, while we're on the subject, lets not forget that Cruz had more than twice as many votes as "Beto."]

With all due respect to the Trib, what's actually "staggering" is how bad of a return on investment "Beto" has been for his donors.

Bottom Line: If the 2018 U.S. Senate race in Texas were the movie Mean Girls, "Beto" would be "fetch," but don't expect the media to stop trying to make it happen....
