Can Beto buy the election?

Can Beto buy the election Texas is the battleground for the soul of the nation

If you’re looking for a politician who wants to ban guns, allow illegal immigrants to flood across the borders, promote abortion-on-demand, and dramatically raise taxes, you don’t need to go to California or New York. You can find him in Texas, and he’s very close to officially buying the Senate race.

In case you haven’t heard of him, his name is Beto O’Rourke. Oh, who am I kidding? Everyone’s heard of Beto O’Rourke now that he’s a celebrity with powerful friends and more money than any Senate candidate, ever.

Judging by the narrowing polls, it’s clear that one simply needs a handsome face and a whole lot of money to spend in order to secure a seat on the United States Senate. Deep red Texas doesn’t believe in, well, anything that Beto is selling, but that doesn’t matter. It’s 2018. Elections can be bought.

Or can they? Hillary Clinton famously demonstrated in 2016 that having the most money doesn’t necessarily equate to victory. Did she spend it wrong? Was her adversary immune to the ads? Was her race the anomaly or is America done with being swayed in the wrong direction by bucket loads of money?

That’s the question that Texas will soon answer. It’s a question that has implications on the soul of American politics.

It would be different if O’Rourke had demonstrated significant leadership as a Representative, but his biggest critics are in El Paso whose residents have seen less of him than his out-of-state donors have. As is often the case with Democrats, he was anointed by the press based on his potential rather than his actions.

If Ted Cruz wins in Texas, things will be as they should be in the red state. If Beto O’Rourke wins, his gigantic war chest supplied mostly by contributors outside of Texas will demonstrate elections can still be bought in modern day America.
