Far-left Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke is turning on Joe Biden as he hopes to take the Lone Star State’s governorship for the Democrats in November. He blamed Biden for Latinos exiting the Democrat Party and boosting the GOP in the 2020 election.

Fox News reports:

“Candidate Biden didn’t spend a dime or day in the Rio Grande Valley or really anywhere in Texas, for that matter, once we got down in the homestretch of the general election,” O’Rourke told a crowd at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin on Saturday. “You got to be locking eyeballs with the people that you want to fight for and serve and whose votes that you want to win.”

Despite losing the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump carried 38% of the Latino vote, a 13 percentage point increase over the level of support that Republican candidates received from that group in the 2018 midterm elections, according to Pew research data.

O’Rourke also said that Trump offered a “very strong, compelling economic message” during the last presidential election.

“It was literally one syllable one word, it was ‘jobs,’ and he kind of offered a false choice: ‘I can either keep you holed up in your house during this pandemic, or I can open up all places of employment and prioritize the economy,’” O’Rourke said Saturday. “What did we have on our side? Nothing.”

“I am making sure that we do not commit the same sin as some Democrats before me have committed, which is to take voters of color, Black voters and Latinos, for granted,” O’Rourke said Saturday.

I doubt that O’Rourke knows the difference between Latino and Hispanic. If so, he wouldn’t know the nationality of those seeking the jobs he promises. He needs to clear his mind before he disarms the nation.

You know Xiden is political poison when even Birdbrain O’Rourke attacks him.
