Beto O’Rourke in 2020: A Prediction from October 2018

It is October 25th, 2018.

Beto O’Rourke is making some incredible progress in Texas. But it’s Texas.

Demographic changes have some people thinking that Texas will eventually turn blue. But is it ready yet? I’m not sure. But I have a prediction.

Mark it down. Come back in two weeks to see if I’m right. Come back in two years to see if I’m really right.


Here goes:

Late at night on November 6th, Beto O’Rourke will take the stage to make a concession speech.

I hope he wins, but I think Texas is too red still.

Beto’s speech will sound something like this:

Thank you so much for your support. I’m sorry we couldn’t win this race.

In June, we were down 10 points.

In August, we were down 6 points.

In September, we were down just 3 points!

Today we lost by 1 point.

Imagine what we could have done with one more month.

Imagine what we could do with two more years.

**Pause while crowd gasps.**

This campaign is not ending tonight. I want to help Texas. To do that best, I think I need to help America.

This 2018 Senate Campaign is now a 2020 Presidential Campaign.

We’ve come this far. With another month, we would’ve won the senate. With another two years, we’ll win the White House.

Thank you.


If this happens, I will be thrilled. I’ve already started designing the t-shirts and hats. Beto, feel free to use any of these. We’re keeping it simple right now.

Do you recognize the frame? That’s from Friends, the one that goes around the peephole. Because we’re all friends here. We need to watch out for each other. Look through that peephole of politics, and open that door. The door to progress. Okay, that part is terrible. Beto, don’t use that writing. But do use any of the hypothetical speech above.

One more prediction: Beto wins in 2020.
