In spite of Beto O’Rourke losing the Texas Senate race to Ted Cruz, progressives are still holding out hope, and even using famous figures in American history to do so. Vox shows how it’s done:
Can a former House member best-known for losing a high-profile Senate race really be elected president?

Maybe “Lincoln on a skateboard” would be a good O’Rourke presidential campaign slogan!
Beto is not Abe Lincoln. Stop kidding yourselves, Vox. https://t.co/DvorP8gAhE

I remember when Lincoln tried to run from his DWI as well & lied about it… https://t.co/HyGWYE6M7j

Vox comparing O’Rourke to Lincoln comes on the heels of a Politico headline that referred to “Beto” as Barack Obama, but white.
