Dallas, TX- In light of the growing list of Democrats who are hoping to challenge President Donald J. Trump in 2020, former Democratic Congressman, Robert Francis O’Rourke has finally announced his intention to run for president after his unsuccessful campaign against U.S. Senator Ted Cruz. Dallas County Republican Party Chairwoman, Missy Shorey weighs in on O’Rourke’s long-awaited announcement.
Dallas County Republican Party Chairwoman Shorey states, “The reality is that Beto will lose again, and as Texans we will share our sincere concerns about a Socialist whose skill set is limited to teasing out announcements, standing on restaurant countertops and only being able to pass one piece of legislation after six years in the U.S. House – renaming a courthouse.”
O’Rourke’s socialist agenda of raising taxes to unprecedented amounts and expanding the federal government beyond its constitutional limits is something that Americans cannot afford. As Democrats continue to support policies that are catastrophic for American families and businesses, the Dallas County Republican Party will remain steadfast in its efforts to fight against government abuse. As the latest presidential candidate to back the Green New Deal, O’Rourke has made it clear that he would rather play politics, than support policies that contribute to the well-being of our country and the growth of our economy.
“2020 will be a showdown on socialism, and we Republicans will take the fight to them,” said Chairwoman Shorey. “We are very clear that we are running on a record of amazing job growth and opportunity, whereas the left is literally trying to tax every family $600,000 per household for their Green New raw Deal.”
