TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY GOP JUGGERNAUT CONSULTANT JEFF ROE CONTENDS BETO O'ROURKE IS 'PERFECT ANTI-TRUMP' 2020 PREZ CANDIDATE!!!
From atop a hill in the Northland that overlooks the Kansas City skyline from afar . . . One of the most respected, or at least highly paid, Republican political power players in the nation makes a bold pronouncement about the future of the Democratic Party as his opposition struggles to find a real contender against the Prez.
I'm not sure this one is a dare or an honest suggestion but there's no doubt that this nationwide power player with a local base knows his stuff and his words are always exceptionally informed.
Take a look at the other side of the coin in the "draft Beto" movement:
Jeff Roe: Democrats have their perfect candidate.
As Beto O’Rourke continues to weigh whether to throw his hat into the ever-expanding ring of Democratic 2020 candidates, the former congressman has received an endorsement from an unlikely source—the former campaign manager of the man who beat him to a Senate seat last year.
“I’m not an expert in Democrat politics but I can tell you he has what they want,” Jeff Roe, the campaign manager for Ted Cruz, the Republican who defeated O’Rourke in a hotly contested Senate race in Texas, told The Wall Street Journal for a report published Wednesday. “He’s the anti-Trump.”
Despite losing to Cruz, the fact that O’Rourke broke fundraising records and pushed the Republican close in a ruby red state in which Democrats have not won a state-wide race in a quarter of a century earned him national recognition. There are currently two groups attempting to draft him to run for the Democratic nomination to take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 election and he has been praised by and met with former President Barack Obama.
