WASHINGTON — Beto O’Rourke raised $6.1 million in his first 24 hours as a presidential candidate, according to his campaign, surpassing Bernie Sanders and every other 2020 Democrat who has disclosed their figures.

O’Rourke’s campaign announced Monday that he had taken in $6,136,763 in online contributions in the day after declaring his candidacy Thursday morning.

The article goes on to state the following:

“In just 24 hours, Americans across this country came together to prove that it is possible to run a true grassroots campaign for president — a campaign by all of us, for all of us, that answers not to the PACs, corporations, and special interests but to the people,” O’Rourke, who has sworn off PAC donations of any kind, said in a statement.

That’s a strong showing for the former Texas congressman who lost a Senate race last year to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, while setting a new fundraising record.

    O’Dork is a liar and switches his mind like the wind. He says whatever he thinks you want to hear and then does the opposite. Even a moron can see his game but these brainless youngsters and some of the braindead left society can’t see the darkness swooping over the world and are moving America towards a 3rd world country. What gets me is those who claim to love the Lord evidently don’t actually read their bibles cause if they did it would be clear what is taking place. I am flabbergasted that the Republican Congress is allowing this country to fall into communism all because of hatred for a non-politician. Unbelievable.
