Beto O'Rourke dominates 2020 Democrats in Texas fundraising

Beto O’Rourke raised more than $2 million from his home state of Texas in the opening weeks of his presidential campaign, easily outpacing his 2020 Democratic rivals.

Another Texan, Julian Castro, placed a distant second in the state’s money race, collecting more than $400,000, according to an analysis of newly filed campaign finance reports.

Texas donors accounted for more than half of the high-dollar donations brought in by O’Rourke, a former El Paso congressman, and Castro, a former San Antonio mayor, during the first fundraising quarter of the election cycle.

After the home-state favorites, California Sen. Kamala Harris raised the most from Texas donors at $190,000. She was followed by New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand at $130,000, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar at $108,000 and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at $102,000. No other candidate crossed the $100,000 threshold in the state.

3. It's great that he helped other Democrats

 

He has made it very clear that whoever the nominee is he will work his tail off to beat Trump.
