Beto O’Rourke’s desperation is showing. Not only is he resorting to false on Governor Greg Abbott comparing him to an “authoritarian,” O’Rourke is openly begging Joe Biden not to come to Texas.

From Politico’s Morning Score:
“Some Democrats are even pleading with the president to stay away from their races, like former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is running for Texas Governor.

“‘I don’t want Joe Biden or anyone else from outside Texas coming into this state to campaign for me or anyone else,’ O’Rourke said during a South by Southwest event in Austin over the weekend.”

In February, 52% of Texans said they disapproved of Biden’s performance so far, including 43% that said they strongly disapprove. And that was BEFORE the fourth straight month of inflation at a 40-year high.

“Texans know now more than ever they need a strong governor like Greg Abbott who will fight to protect their economy and safety in spite of the federal government’s failures,” said RGA spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez. “Just two years ago, Beto O’Rourke welcomed Joe Biden to Texas with open arms and enthusiastically endorsed him for President. It’s only now that his endorsement and judgement clearly didn’t age well that he’s hoping Texans will forget the Beto-Biden agenda is the reason the border, the world, and their monthly budgets are in crisis.”
