Last night, Bill Maher had a one-on-one conversation with Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic challenger to Ted Cruz for the US senate seat to represent Texas.
Beto says his nickname is common (for Roberto) in El Paso, but he is all Irish as he can be on St. Pat’s Day. He’s from a family of immigrants. He’s also been to 226 counties out of 254 in Texas. That’s a lot of ground for introductions!
I watched it as I had wondered what all of the hootin’ and hollerin’ was about Beto. After watching this interview, I think you will see why @liepardestin has been touting Beto’s candidacy. He’s got a bit of charisma.
This is another open thread for all things Irish (music, video clips of fav films, etc) or other news/issues you wish to share!
