The 2018 midterms may have seen a slow blue wave after all as dozens of undecided races have eventually been called for Democrats as the final counts have finished.
But it was a heartbreaker for a couple big name candidates, namely Stacey Abrams, who was narrowly defeated in the most overtly crooked election we’ve seen in modern politics, and Beto O’Rourke, who captured America’s hearts with his grassroots campaign and punk rock past.
Now everyone is asking if he’ll pull an Abraham Lincoln and turn that high-profile loss, in which he consistently looked amazing and articulate, into a run at the presidency.
And TMZ actually got to ask him to his face!
His answer was as heartfelt and real as we’ve come to expect. He began:
“I’m gonna hang out with my family. I’m headed back to Texas. Just getting to spend time with them… looking forward to that.”
But has he considered 2020???
“No. I can’t. It’s been a little over a week since we lost this election… I’m still taking that in and trying to figure out just where I am and where my family is. We haven’t really been able to talk or think about it.”
That isn’t a no…
“I haven’t made any decisions about anything, is probably the best way to put it.”
After spending two years running a race, we’re sure the last thing he wants to think about is more of that.
But seriously, how nice would it be to have a president again who is actually a bona fide family man??
