  1. Probably. Good exposure. But the corrupt DNC will push warren and sanders aside, back a weak candidate and recreate another Hillary situation, especially if grandpa Joe is named the candidate.

  2. There will be voterID for 2020 and the Vote FRAUD evidence is about to come out! MSNBCannibals need to pack their bags and go back to their home country (Communist China and Qatar and!! France…!)

  3. Brother Beto you're not going to be president in 2020 , so why not be a leader also and go help your party and country in the Senate ☮️

  4. Please please, we just need 1 President, Beto is gonna have a very tough race against Biden and Warren. But we need at least 5 senators to repair the damage Moscow Mitch has done!

  5. Beto leads the back of the pack. Why should he pull out and run for the Senate rather than Julian Castro, whose numbers are not even that good?

  6. THESE CORRUPT DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS AND RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT ARE GOING TO FIND OUT THERE NEVER GOING TO BE PRESIDENT OR EVER BE IN POWER EVER AGAIN SO U MIGHT AS WRLL RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN MEXICO BECAUSE U PUT I'LLEGALS FIRST ANYWAY BEFORE AMERICAN CITIZENS AND THEY GET FREE EVERYTHING WHILE THOUSANDS OF HOMELESS AMERICAN CITIZENS AND FAMILIES ARE LIVING IN THE STREETS AND SIDEWALKS IN DEMOCRAT RUN DISTRICTS AND STATES AND U WANT TO RUN AMERICA AND TURN AMERICA INTO A THIRD WORLD COUNTRY LIKE VENEZUELA OR SOMALIA OR LIke California , CITIZENS AND FAMILIES LIVING IN THE STREETS AND SIDEWALKS thats what all of AMERICA would look like with DEMOCRAT open Borders and a DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT. AMERICA DESTROYED

  7. He lost the senate race. Why should he run again for the senate seat, after running for the presidential nomination? It will take some courage.

  8. It's time for white people to sit down. Their vision for America has ruined this country in the last two centuries. It's time to let the real people of America on the driver seat!
