Gun-Hating O’Rourke Quits 2020 Race

The 2020 field of Democrat candidates is comprised of individuals who loathe the United States and the Constitution.

Of course, each of the contenders has their own way of going about things and attempting to dress up their anti-American policies and ideologies. For instance, candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren tout policies which would shatter jobs, increase unemployment, and engender massive surges in taxes.

Then, there are candidates like Beto O’Rourke. During his tenure as a presidential candidate, O’Rourke made purposefully inflammatory statements about gun ownership in America. He vowed to take firearms away from law-abiding citizens; when O’Rourke faced well-deserved pushback for this type of talk, he upped the ante and threatened to use police as muscle to enforce his unconstitutional gun grabs.

In the wake of all this, Beto O’Rourke has officially dropped out of the 2020 presidential election, per reports from Fox News.

Why O’Rourke Chose to End His Campaign

A lack of funding served as the central reason behind O’Rourke’s political demise. See, what the failed candidate didn’t realize is that flagrant rhetoric about guns might’ve won him brownie points from left-wing extremists, but it didn’t generate any capital for him.

During O’Rourke’s time in the 2020 race, he consistently polled at subpar levels and below multiple other candidates. Moreover, his latest standing in the polls did not qualify him for upcoming primary debates which are set to take place in the coming weeks.

When O’Rourke announced the end of his campaign, he made a statement on Twitter in an attempt to appear dignified. Of course, people who have been keeping up with the events of this 2020 election managed to see right through O’Rourke’s transparent efforts.

In additional remarks, O’Rourke affirmed his support for far-left policies before taking shots at President Trump. The failed presidential candidate vowed that Democrats will “defeat Donald Trump in 2020” and also alleged that America will be “well-served” by any one of the remaining Democrat contenders.

More to Come?

Issues with raising capital have become more and more common amongst 2020 Democrats. O’Rourke’s lack of funds ultimately led to him dropping out; thus far, reports over recent weeks also indicated that Joe Biden, Cory Booker, and Pete Buttigieg have struggled with fundraising.

While Biden managed to gain backing from super PACs (despite previously speaking out against these PACs), Booker and Buttigieg succeeding in raising the necessary funding after putting out messages of urgency to their supporters.

Only time will tell whether or not additional Democrat candidates follow in Beto O’Rourke’s footsteps and ultimately bow out of the 2020 presidential election.
