Beto O’Rourke, whose candidacy for president is already on life support, was caught running ads in Mexico. They might be his only hope of getting a significant number of voters. His campaign started off very well, but then he made open borders his central campaign theme. Not only does he not want to build a wall, but he also wants to tear down every barrier between the two countries. I guess open borders is not the winning issue Democrats seem to think it is, especially among Blacks and Hispanics who are now working for the first time since the Obama plague hit this country.
Former Texas Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is one of the many Democratic candidates vying for the party’s nomination in 2020, but after a widely heralded initial rollout of his candidacy, his campaign has struggled to garner support and is rapidly sinking.
The Real Clear Politics average of polls has O’Rourke, who was once viewed as a serious contender for the nomination, way behind the leaders in sixth place with a mere 5.6 percent support among voters. That 5.6 percent is down from the 9.5 percent support he enjoyed less than a month ago, which ranked him third in the race at that point.
Bearing in mind O’Rourke’s apparent free-fall in the polls over the past several weeks, a shocking report from the Washington Free Beacon about the candidate advertising his presidential campaign in a foreign country makes a little bit more sense, as he is growing desperate to garner enough support to keep him afloat in the Democratic primary race.
The Free Beacon discovered on Friday, by virtue of Facebook’s transparency tools, that O’Rourke’s presidential campaign had allegedly paid for and ran targeted advertisements on Facebook that appeared in the news feeds of Facebook users in Mexico.
A screenshot of an ad O’Rourke had designated to run in Mexico was included in the report. That post, with event details in both English and Spanish, seemingly invited people in Mexico to join him for a campaign event on Tuesday in San Diego, California.
