Ooo, you guys! Have you heard? Beto O’Rourke’s reportedly gearing up to take his show on the road again:
Beto O’Rourke is asking aides to create an itinerary for him to take a solo road trip outside Texas where he would “pop into places” such as community college campuses, with no staff or press (but documenting on social media). Via @reidepstein@KThomasDC: https://t.co/H2QYI3W54V

Hey, wait a minute … what’s all this business about no press?
No press ???

Isn’t Beto supposed to be better than that? For shame!
…a press announcement about an event that bans the media…he’s so….authentic…

To be fair, though, maybe he’s just trying to avoid a potentially awkward situation:

Now that we think about it, yeah, it probably does make things a little easier. So does this, actually:
It’s nice of him to do it solo. Wouldn’t want him driving drunk with others in the car, so that’s pretty thoughtful.
