Question about Beto O'Rourke and compensation

Curious about how he supports himself and his family during this period of time when he campaigns for senate or president. Could be his wife works and supports the family. Maybe heís independently wealthy.

My question comes from a place of wanting him to run... and wishing him and his family no financial hardship.

Trumps followers mirror him....

This is not a blanket statement but many of Trump followers tend to be egocentric just like trump. The "I got mine so f-/@ you" crowd.
Many are woefully and willfully ignorant and don't care to learn.
Crude and crass. Who needs education? Who needs smart intelligent caring teachers?
Then there's the wealthy (probably embarrassed to support Trump) that are getting wealthier at the expense of the majority of us.... they are like him as well. Cutting corners to burn the little guy. The new tax law simply an ongoing means to make more money from the masses.... another deal they can laude over us peons. Just like Trump.
Even the evangelicals and right to lifers.... easy prey.... sort of like Trump was easy prey for Putin.
Laughably easy.

I'm a CPA with a small tax practice

My husband and I are solid middle class with two college age dependents. Nothing changed from last year to this year. Last year our refund was 4000 this year we owe 3000. Thatís a 7000 swing not in our favor we are both sick about this. Iíve prepared a few returns (W2s and 1099s are just now being received) and refunds are significantly less or people owe for the first time in years. Itís gonna be tough tax season.
