I’m running for governor to deliver for ALL the people of Texas. It’s time to move beyond Greg Abbott’s cruelty, incompetence, and corruption. By uniting the people of Texas, we are going to focus on the big things that we want to accomplish together: great jobs, world-class schools, and the ability to see a doctor. We’d love for you to join us: https://act.betoorourke.com/signup/bft-volunteer/

In the last week I’ve spoken to 5 people in serious mental crisis that exhausted efforts in this Texas city to find help. The shortest “wait time” was 3 months. THREE MONTHS! In that time they may hurt themselves or worse. This is unacceptable.
Beto wrote this story.
Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for themAs I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two
“This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.
“My dream was abruptly ended when I heard a loud banging on the front window. It was an old man, who was using his cane to awaken me. He might have been a witness to my act of love. I was not sure, nor did I care. It was simply ecstasy. As I drove home, I envisioned myself committing more of these 'acts of love,' and after a while, I had no trouble carrying them out. The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were. … I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last.”
I don't know why people still listen to you after all your flip, and flop, and flat. With the situation of food and gas prices, crimes and border crisis, words are the last things people want to hear. Actions are needed, please
Beto: I am going to fight for you every single day.
Abbott: It could have been worst.
Do you want a Governor who will fight or a Governor with MORE EXCUSES?
We stand with BETO O'Rourke for Governor of Texas.
VOTE BLUE, VOTE BETO!!!
Beto, can you please bring up the back log of untested rape kits in Texas and other states. One 13 y o in Texas, brutally raped in her home, waited 20 years. The serial rapist was found, but by then the statute of limitations had expired, rapist that matched the rape kit was set free. As of 2/2021 Texas had 6,108 in backlog. Cronyn stated in 2019 Tx had the funding to address the backlog. Was the backlog cleared? If not , what happened to the money. I don’t live in Tx but know you would be the best Gov since Anne Richards. Big hug from AL.
Texans are you sick and tired of all the hatred from Abbott and GOP then vote for Beto because he cares 💙
MHMR told my friend who was hallucinating to put sheets over the windows so she didnt see the people that weren't there! Absolutely incompetent assessment and NO treatment provided.
I love it when Beto swears. We need real ppl in government! Not parrots
The Governor doesn't have the power to "do something". I know you know this man.
0:55 love this moment. We need someone with this much passion AND compassion leading Texas
Vote for your rights, vote for Beto!
Great campaigning style
Very well said BETO O'Rourke , hell yeah you got my vote 👍
Mental health services are a joke. People need help immediately not months from today.
