After his loss to Texas Governor Greg Abbott last night, Beto O’Rourke is now a three time loser. He lost a senate race in Texas, then a presidential run and now this.
So the next question should be obvious.
What political office will Beto run for and lose next? https://t.co/Ay67tvjj9v

Consider the money this guy has burned through.
Spent $80 million to lose to Ted Cruz in 2018.
Spent $13 million to lose the Democrat nominee in 2020.
Spent $77 million to lose to Greg Abbott in 2022.
That's $170 million to lose three elections.
Stacey Abrams will beat him with what she spent on two losses.

Is Beto finished now?
Brandon Gillespie writes at FOX News:
THREE STRIKES: Once highly touted Beto O’Rourke loses third election in a row
The third time was not the charm for Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke on Tuesday as voters in the state got a front-row seat to see his latest attempt at higher office come crashing down.
O’Rourke, a former congressman, fell short in his race to unseat incumbent Republican Gov. Greg Abbott the Fox News Decision Desk projected, marking his third loss in four years after running for U.S. Senate in Texas in 2018 and president in 2020.
Although O’Rourke was highly touted by Democrats in each of his campaigns, he consistently failed to gain traction with voters following his 2018 run for Senate, and ultimately he became parody-worthy for “Saturday Night Live” over his perennial, lackluster runs for office.
The hype surrounding O’Rourke began during his failed 2018 Senate campaign, which saw him narrowly lose to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the deep-red state and continued when he decided to throw his hat into the crowded Democratic presidential primaries less than two years later. Some Democrats even hailed him as “the next Bobby Kennedy,” but a number of gaffes and awkward campaign moments led to him losing support and dropping out of the race months before any votes were even cast.
Is Beto finally going to have to get a real job?
