Texas GOP Tried To Mock Beto O'Rourke With Old Photos—And It Backfired Big Time 😂

By John Sundholm

In his campaign for re-election to represent Texas in the Senate, Ted Cruz is having a much more uphill battle than expected.

And nowadays, of course, nothing turns around a flagging political race like calmly and cogently presenting your alternative ideas for the future of your constituency digging up unflattering photos of your opponent.  

So the Texas GOP dug into the background of Cruz’s opponent, Beto O’Rourke, and hit what they thought was pay dirt: 

an embarrassing photo of O’Rourke in a 1990s post-hardcore band, as well as his DUI mugshot from two decades ago.
