For a moment in August, an event hall in Texas teemed with hope, taquitos and unity.
It was a border-town stop for Beto O’Rourke’s Senate campaign, but another Democratic politician commanded particular attention: Gina Ortiz Jones, a history-making congressional candidate — gay, Filipina-American, an Iraq war veteran — hoping to turn a majority-Hispanic district blue. “Really special person,” Mr. O’Rourke said, as Ms. Jones stood and waved.
The article goes on to state the following:
But soon, a county chairwoman posed an uncomfortable question. Mr. O’Rourke had not endorsed Ms. Jones. In fact, he had elevated her Republican opponent, Representative Will Hurd, with frequent praise and, most memorably, a live-streamed bipartisan road trip that helped jump-start their midterm campaigns. Would Mr. O’Rourke support the Democrat?
Beto O’Rourke’s supporters view his above-the-fray message as the foundation of his appeal, but after he declined to endorse a Democrat in a competitive Texas district, some within his party wonder if he can be fully trusted as an ally https://t.co/VXhI3TNvrV
