Beto talks possible run for Texas Governor in 2022, calls for Ted Cruz to resign from Senate

Speaking with KLAQ’s Buzz Adams, former Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke talked about a possible run fo Texas Governor in 2022.

O’Rourke said “It’s something I’m going to think about.”

He continued “this State has suffered perhaps more than any other in the midst of this pandemic.”

“In El Paso, so many people dying so quickly you set up 10 mobile morgues, have to call the national guard to move the dead bodies, and you have a complete indifference on the part of Gov. Greg. Abbott to what local leadership, including our County Judge Samaniego, are trying to do to literally save lives of the people in our lives,” he added.

Beto also signaled his support for Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz resigning.

Beto lost to Cruz in the 2018 election.

“I hope our country comes through on this one,” Beto said of pressuring Cruz to resign. “El Paso Times, Houston Chronicle, San Antonio Express-News, the three papers of record for three of the biggest cities in Texas have called for his resignation,” he added.
