Beto O’Rourke, Stacey Abrams Crushed

Stacey Abrams

( – As last night’s election results rolled in, one thing became clear. Both Beto O’Rourke and Stacey Abrams suffered crushing defeats.

As Fox News tells the tale in “Beto O’Rourke, Stacey Abrams razzed after repeated losses: ‘They’re amazing at setting Democrat money on fire'”:

Democrats Beto O’Rourke and Stacey Abrams were mocked Tuesday night after their losses to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, respectively.

“O’Rourke, the former congressman who became a media darling during his 2018 campaign to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., has now lost races for the Senate, presidency, and governorship all within the past four years. Abrams, who argued without evidence that her 2018 election loss to Kemp was illegitimate, was rejected by the voters of Georgia by a wider margin in the 2022 rematch.

“O’Rourke and Abrams were dubbed “superstar losers” in The Atlantic last week for being “among the country’s best-known political figures” who “have become so well known not by winning big elections but by losing them.” [emphasis added]

What remains to be seen is if either Beto O’Rourke or Stacey Abrams will ever run for office again. This morning, Abrams is already saying she might seek public office in the next election.
