Philadelphia Inquirer article on Beto

this article discusses the similarities of Beto's campaign with the movie Bulworth in which a politician starts speaking truth.

https://www.inquirer.com/opinion/beto-o-rourke-2020-presidential-campaign-emotion-el-paso-shooting-20190822.html

"For my entire adult lifetime — since not voting for Ronald Reagan in my first election in 1980 — American voters on the left and center-left have too often been left cold by a Democratic Party establishment and its strange conventions that fail to connect with the emotion and, too often, the raw anger of our times. And that was before Donald Trump seized the White House with racist and xenophobic demagoguery."

and closing with "People are mad as hell and Beto is the one who’s chugging from the steel flask of truth and putting it all out there right at the moment we need to hear it. There’s plenty of time to fret about what that means for an election that won’t happen for 15 months."
