I have a feeling Beto O'Rourke may be an emerging "Dark horse" in 2024

He seems to be gathering a rather significant following especially, with younger folks and women. Thoughts?

I think he needs to legitimize himself as a legislator. What he's done so far isn't enough IMO. He's also lost the last two campaigns he's run. I'm think he's smart, driven and compassionate. But the national stage is a little different animal. I think the dark horse is Gavin Newsom depending on how things play out in the midterms. Long way away. A lot can change pretty quickly these days.
@Ynotisay All good points. As for me, I was a horrible student but oddly, a great teacher so I kind of question the need to "legitimize" legislative skills. You're probably right though.

No idea who I'd vote for in the primaries, IF I voted in primaries, but if he was the candidate he'd have my vote, for sure.

Hes trailing Abbott in his Gubernatorial bid...I am not conversant with his policies but we sure need someone who isn't a geriatric case and the young kids could decide the next election
@bookerdana I agree.

He has quite a following. Conservatives who listen to his message understand.

He spent three terms in Congress representing El Paso. He knows border issues very well.

It would be supremely hilarious if MAGA turns out to be the thing that ultimately makes a gerrymandered Texas (in favor of Republicans) turn blue
His first name is too close to beta.
@LordShadowfire Actually, it's good marketing he didn't have to pay for. People remember things like that.
