Finally, some encouraging news for Beto O’Rourke:

Beto needs to cling to any good news he can get, because things aren’t looking too hot for him right now.

More from the Boston Globe:

“His being gay is an advantage and, if he were straight, I don’t think he would be doing as well,” said Barney Frank, the former Democratic congressman from Massachusetts who came out in 1987 and whose 40-year career in state and federal office traces the arc of LGBTQ rights.

“It attracts attention to him and he gets points for being open and honest and gives people a chance to affirm their lack of prejudice,” Frank said, adding archly: “I think Beto O’Rourke may be regretting that he’s straight.”

Talk about kicking a guy when he’s down!

He just can’t catch a break.


He won’t make it that far, but if he did, yes. We totally would.
