Hours after KTSM confirmed that former El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke will run for president in 2020, the republican party took to Twitter to respond.
The GOP released an attack ad against O’Rourke early Thursday morning.
“Beto O’Rourke may be the left’s dream boy…but he’d be a nightmare for America,” the video’s caption reads.
The video highlights O’Rourke’s support of open borders, government-run healthcare, and the reported multi-trillion-dollar Green New Deal addressing climate change.
It also includes his 1998 DWI arrest, which the candidate has called a “terrible mistake” for which “there is no explanation”.
