Beto-Mania still running wild

If you thought Beto-Mania was over, you’d be wrong. It’s not, by a long shot. And Democratic donors seem to be treating it like Hulkamania right now.

The donors are all in, and holding off on committing money until Beto O’Rourke decides his future plans, but even late night comics like Jimmy Kimmel think that's a bit much.

“Beto’s not exactly off to a roaring start. Look, he just lost. Let’s put our money on him,” Kimmel joked a couple of weeks ago.

Political consultant Joe Brettell says donors need to slow their rolls when it comes to 2020.

“It’s a long climb to go from being a back bench House member to President of the United States,” Brettell said.


But the issue is that Beto is the shiny new toy in a tired Democratic Party.

“The party has a youth problem. It’ll be alleviated, but that’s going to take a while,” Brettell explained.

Unless Beto can overtake mainstays like Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, none of whom have ruled out a 2020 run.
