Anyone here familiar with Beto O’Rourke, who’s running against Cruz down in the great Lone Star State?

I just listen to a couple shorts and this interview.

Man I hope this guy is for real, because what I saw impressed the hell out of me.
He gives a little spark of hope, he does.  Anyone familiar with him?  ?

The blowback against the DCCC dirty tricks re Moser (she raised like 100K over the following two days) feels good too, hope its catching.

Bernie Sanders showed that big money isn’t needed to run a presidential campaign, changing the national calculus.
But can the same be done in Texas? Will 2018 be the year small dollars make the difference at the local level?
