Tuesday Morning Man: Beto O’Rourke!

I try not to get too political on the blog because I want you to have a fun place to go each day.

But today’s Morning Man, Beto O’Rourke, is a Democratic congressman who is challenging anti-gay Ted Cruz for a seat in the U.S. Senate!

I think you know who I’m rooting for.

O’Rourke, 45, has been serving as the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 16th congressional district in his native El Paso since 2013. In 2005, he became one of the youngest people to ever be elected to the El Paso City Council.

Since the beginning of 2017, O’Rourke has been profiled in the Washington Post, the Texas Observer, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone. His time playing in punk-rock bands during his high school and college years has proved irresistible for headline writers, who have identified him as “Ted Cruz’s Punk-Rock Problem” and asserted that his “Punk-Rock Past Could Help Him.”

He has most recently been profiled in Texas Monthly in an article titled Does Beto O’Rourke Stand a Chance Against Ted Cruz?

Let’s hope so.
