34. He is a Texas Democrat and politically savvy for his age.

 

He wouldn’t join the Congressional Progressive Caucus. He is a member of the New Democrat Coalition. He advocates that congresspersons shouldn’t join any caucus and should work with everyone.

Two things I know about O’Rourke...

1) He is a new shiny object and we Democrats seem to really like shiny new things at the national level.

2) He is a progressive willing to compromise on legislation.

I don’t think he can win if he runs for President this time around. People will quickly learn that inspiring in Texas in a run against Cruz is much different than being inspiring on a stage with Warren, Sanders, Booker, Harris, etc.
