The closest thing we can describe Beto’s campaign is Obama’s 2008 run, but with Texas flavor.
If you haven’t been to a Beto rally, I strongly suggest you attend one before the November election. There are still dozens of stops in his Drive for Texas tour. The sooner you RSVP, the better, as his events have been so packed that he’s had to do overflow events on multiple occasions. The last stop on this tour is on September 7 in Denton. But don’t worry, he’ll still be campaigning until the election. Then, when you finally see Beto in person, you’ll likely become a Betocrat, too.
Have you seeN the crowd sizes that have been showing up to see Beto?
I remember toward the end of Beto’s 2018 campaign. He held a rally in Plano where 3,500 people showed up. At the time, it was a huge deal. Everyone made a big deal about it. The picture above is from Frisco this last weekend, where 5,500 people showed up to hear him speak. And that picture only shows a small fraction of the attendees.
Here was the overflow crowd:
But, it isn’t only cities in the metroplex that bring out big numbers.
Earlier in the day, Beto held a rally in Greenville (Hunt County), population 25,000. They were expecting 300 people to show up, but 800 did.
The funny thing was, there were protesters, but they weren’t even from Greenville. The protest’s leader is a woman with ties to the far-right extremist group, DFW Deplorables. She was the same person who assaulted Jessica Luther Rummel back in February and has been spotted making trouble at Collin County Commissioner meetings and Dallas ISD School Board. So it’s presumable that most of the protesters seen at Beto rallies are the same groups following him around the state.
In Waxahachie, 1,745 people showed up to see Beto the week before. No matter where he goes, in the city or the country, huge crowds are lining out the door to hear him speak.
Last night a Collin County Republican precinct chair dropped a video that has gone viral. Check it out:
Ironically, Collin County is the next Texas County that will flip blue.
He’s not wrong.
On top of that, an unprecedented amount of people have signed up to volunteer for Beto’s campaign. Eighty thousand, to be exact. Yes, you read that right. Beto has 80,000 volunteers busting their butts to get him elected in November.
Beto is organized way beyond the Texas Democratic Party (and has even promised to share his data with them).
This GOP Precinct Chair, just like so many of us, sees the sheer energy surrounding Beto and his campaign. There’s nothing it can be compared to in recent years other than Obama’s first presidential run.
There is so much energy and enthusiasm surrounding Beto’s 2022 campaign for governor because Texans genuinely believe he will fix our state.
Twenty-Five years of Bush, Perry, and Abbott have hurt Texans in almost every way imaginable.
A recent study by CNBC shows Texas as the second worst state to live. Texas rates poorly for life, health, and inclusion. Texas’ weaknesses include childcare, health resources, inclusiveness, and voting rights. Yet, ironically, the same study showed Texas as the fifth best state for doing business.
Thanks to Greg Abbott, businesses are flocking to the state for low regulation, taxes, and minimum wages, and the working families in Texas suffer because of it.
This probably explains why Abbott is only raking in million-dollar donations from his billionaire buddies, but Beto had several hundred thousand more small donations. The biggest donors to Beto’s campaign have been teachers.
Beto has plans to fix all of the things that the GOP broke. The grid, healthcare, property taxes, mental health, the soaring crime rates, school funding, and access to reproductive healthcare, just to name a few.
Beto will fix Texas.
Texans believe that Beto is the path forward.
That’s why Living Blue in Texas is now a proud Betocrat publication, and if you love Beto as much as we do, you have to help him win.
If you haven’t signed up to volunteer yet, here’s the link.
And if you have the time, you should strongly consider becoming a precinct chair for your local party. You could kill two birds with one stone, help Beto, and down-ballot candidates at the same time.
Make sure you talk to all of your friends and family about the importance of voting in this election.
