Annie Andersen: AND JUST LIKE THAT- THE TEXAS’ GUBERNATORIAL RACE IS HEATING UP.
EARLY MONDAY MORNING.. BETO O’ROURKE ANNOUNCED HE WILL BE RUNNING IN TEXAS’ 2022 GUBERNATORIAL RACE.
HE’LL FACE CURRENT GOVERNOR, REPUBLICAN GREG ABBOTT… WHO IS RUNNING FOR A THIRD TERM.
Beto O’Rourke: ”I know that together, we can get back to being big again. Because I saw that in February, when the electricity grid failed, and those in power failed all of us. It was the people of Texas who were willing to put their differences behind them, and get to work doing the job at hand, which meant helping our fellow Texans get through that crisis.”
Annie Andersen: THE PERENNIAL CANDIDATE.. O’ROURKE HAS RUN FOR THREE DIFFERENT OFFICES IN AS MANY ELECTION CYCLES.

Beto O’Rourke: ”Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-16, your AK-47”.
