WTF: MSM Claims O’Rourke Can Now Win the Presidency After Losing to Cruz


Democrat Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s narrow loss Tuesday night to incumbent senator and former Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz in a Senate race in Texas that drew record-setting fundraising from around the nation looks to have lifted further the already rising political star of the El Paso native.

That’s according to U.K.-based gambling site Betfair, where the 46-year-old O’Rourke’s odds to become president in 2020 have surged in a ranking that includes Democrats and Republicans. O’Rourke is tagged with about 10-to-1 odds for a 2020 win as of Wednesday morning, up from as steep as 400-to-1 longshot for the White House at one time early in the Senate race. While still in the throes of the Senate race, O’Rourke was quick to quash the notion of a 2020 presidential run, but he has not spoken about it since the Tuesday loss.
