We’ve been referring to Beto O’Rourke as a Senate hopeful, but it’s really starting to seem like he’s not all that interested in being the next U.S. Senator from Texas:

More from CNN:
Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke said at a CNN town hall Thursday night that he would still vote to impeach President Donald Trump.
The El Paso congressman challenging Sen. Ted Cruz said that his position on impeachment hadn’t changed, even as Cruz has used the issue to galvanize conservative voters against O’Rourke’s campaign.
Asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if he had changed his mind after saying he’d vote to impeach Trump this summer, O’Rourke said, “I haven’t.”
He can support moving Mt. Everest to Alabama. Doesn’t mean a damned thing. #VetoBeto

Call us crazy, but if you’re a Democrat hoping to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate, running on impeaching Trump probably isn’t the wisest move. Unless maybe you’ve got other plans that don’t necessarily involve the Senate at all.
No one in Texas wants this. He’s running for president, not senate.

Again, a position you would only take if you’re running for president in 2020. A position you’d never take if you were actually running for senate in Texas. Trump is popular here. Beto’s entire campaign has been a scam and so many fell for it. https://t.co/74loczICjQ
