Skateboarding socialist Beto O'Rourke wipes out

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Robert Francis O’Rourke — “Beto” for political purposes — narrowly lost to Senate incumbent Ted Cruz in Texas, a state Mr. Cruz should have carried by double digits. But races have a habit of narrowing when the national political media step in and dump millions and millions of dollars in free, glowing advertising for the socialist on a skateboard. Now come the endless investigations, hearings and impeachment circus in the House under Speaker Nancy Pelosi. My question is this: If that strategy did not work very well in a midterm when the Democratic base was super energized, why would it work in two years?
