Beto O'Rourke says storm crisis brought out best in Texans, quiet on his political plans

Beto O'Rourke's efforts helping storm-hit Texans have fueled calls for him to run against Gov. Greg Abbott or U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, but right now, he's finding fulfillment in volunteering.

Political analysts see Abbott and Cruz weakened, at least temporarily, from the fallout over power and water outages across much of the state and Cruz's short-lived trip to Mexico.

As for O'Rourke, he's busy working with other volunteers to get food, water and help to Texans who need it.

The one-time presidential candidate and former congressman from El Paso said, as of Monday, he and his team of volunteers have made about 900,000 wellness checks and delivered food and water to seniors and other Texans affected by the winter storms.

1. I would support Beto as VP to Harris in 2024.

Or. Better yet as Gov of TX!
He cares for the people of TX.
