Beto O’Rourke’s “soft launch” of his presidential campaign has been really soft, with the failed Senate candidate hitting the road and keeping a journal of his deep thoughts on Medium.
We’d guess the Draft Beto crowd would like their chosen one to maybe stop driving around aimlessly and get serious about running, but for now, the best they can do is hold house parties to maintain each other’s enthusiasm. Here’s one in New Hampshire, and a Boston Globe reporter was there.
About 25 people attend a Draft Beto house party in Concord NH tonight. The argument: he is hopeful and can win. Currently hosts are reading from @BetoORourke medium posts. #fitn pic.twitter.com/N8DGgodw6E

Tell me they aren't congregating and reading Beto blog posts, as if they're scripture. Please tell me this is a nightmare, and I will wake up in a few minutes.
It's a Beto cult.

Think they were snapping their fingers as posts were being read like beatniks?

The Gov of VA can get more Dems in a room to witness an infanticide.

A hundred years from now, the Scottish Burns night will have an American equivalent – O'Rourke nights where people eat vegan food and recite emo blog posts.

'This is a baaaaad look': Well, Beto O'Rourke may have just 'locked up the furries vote' https://t.co/l9a3JUyd2H
