The campaign of Beto O’Rourke is dying a slow and painful death.
The former Texas congressman was anticipating a massive crowd at UNLV and reserved the courtyard to hold the anticipated crowd.
However, the event was moved indoors to a tiny room when roughly only three dozen people showed up to hear O’Rourke speak.
Well, That Was Embarrassing
Up until Biden had announced, O’Rourke held the first-day record of fundraising with $6.1 million.
The media was agog over his announcement and could not wait to portray him as the savior of the party.
Mind you, his biggest achievement in the political world to this point was losing to Ted Cruz in the Senate election in 2018.
O’Rourke, who had money coming in from all over the country, lapped Ted Cruz multiple times in terms of how much money was raised and spent during the election.
Cruz had a team of less than two dozen, whereas as O’Rourke had hundreds on his team going door-to-door.
Even with those advantages, though, O’Rourke failed to beat him.
Bye Bye, Beto
The media absolutely loved Beto during the mid-term elections.
Every late-night TV host had him on to tell his story about how he can save the state of Texas from evil Ted Cruz.
The problem, though, was that the media was purposely hiding a rather shady past about Beto.
As those facts became more public, the support for Beto has suffered in kind.
Now, instead of 1,000 people showing up, this is what Beto gets at his rallies…
Around 35 people here to see Beto O’Rourke at UNLV. The rally was supposed to be held in the courtyard outside, but students told me no one is on campus on Fridays bc it’s mainly a commuter school. pic.twitter.com/zFygogVAe6

Oh, and if you think this is only part of the room, here is a view from the back…

Beto has been sliding in the polls virtually from the first day he decided to run.
The announcement by Biden has knocked him off the podium and it is likely he will continue slide.
He probably won’t go away anytime soon, though, because he loves to spend other people’s money.
