Via TTN:

On Sunday, Democrat Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke announced via social media that he had contracted a mystery bacterial infection Friday and was stepping away from the campaign trail.

O’Rourke posted on Twitter, “After feeling ill on Friday, I went to Methodist Hospital in San Antonio where I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection. The extraordinary team there — from custodians to nurses and doctors — gave me excellent care and attention, including IV antibiotics and rest.”

He added in a subsequent tweet, “While my symptoms have improved, I will be resting at home in El Paso in accordance with the doctors’ recommendations. I am sorry to have had to postpone events because of this, but promise to be back on the road with you as soon as I am able.”

O’Rourke is running against incumbent two-term Gov. Greg Abbott, who is polling ahead by seven points. The Democrat previously had a failed U.S. Senate run against Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and a failed presidential run, losing to Joe Biden in the primary.

During his campaign, he constantly attacked gun rights, which is sure not helping him in deep-red Texas where firearm ownership is deeply embedded in the state.

At first, he thought it might be a vaginal yeast infection, then he found out it was Monkey pox.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! As if I really CARE! Just using it to get crap out in the press. Thousands get sick every day but don’t put it out in the media. HELL NO! BETO YOU CAN’T HAVE MY GUNS! I figured it was a BRAIN DESOLVING CANDY BAR he ate. Maybe that cat turd tootsie rolls he found at the playground sand box. I’m sure he is all for arming all the IRS agents to protect you. Another commie blowhard.
