Howard Dean says Beto O’Rourke had more supporters than President Trump at his march in El Paso, TX last night:
Beto draws 10000 supporters. Trump 6500. Hmmmm.

This is what fact-checkers usually call a lie. From MSNBC’s Garrett Haake where we see that Trump had a total at his rally of about 17,000 while Beto O’Rourke had about 7000:
I hate crowd size estimates (outside & dark, everyone is guessing) but here you go:
El Paso Coliseum: 6500 capacity (per FD)
Outside/Overflow: 10-12k (unofficial PD estimate given to @alivitali)
BETO/March for Truth:
Organizers Estimate: ~7000
Pre-event estimate: 6k-9k

Beto’s people say there were 7000 people at his rally while Howard Dean says there were 10,000. That earns him 3000 Pinnochios.
