Beto O'Rourke Roasted for Sharing Pic Wearing a Shirt With Message About Trans Kids

Share

Democratic Texas gubernatorial hopeful Beto O’Rourke is getting roasted by conservatives on social media for a picture he posted with a message about “trans kids.”

On Thursday, O’Rourke posted a picture wearing a t-shirt that had the colors of the Texas state flag on it.

Additionally, it read, “Don’t mess with Trans kids.”

His post comes on the International Transgender Day of Visibility.

O’Rourke, a former Congressman who previously launched failed bids for the Senate and presidency, won his party’s nomination for governor earlier this month.

He will face off against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) in the November general election.

As USA Today notes, “Both are prolific fundraisers who have captured significant support from their respective parties. Fundraising figures from both campaigns released Wednesday show O’Rourke and Abbott raising money at a similar pace, but Abbott has amassed a campaign war chest that gives him a significant advantage in the race.”

“Abbott received $3.8 million in donations from Jan. 1 through Feb. 19 and O’Rourke raised $3 million over the same period. But Abbott ended the fundraising period with $49.8 million on hand to O’Rourke’s $6.8 million,” it added.

While O’Rourke has been a successful fundraiser, polls show that he is trailing Abbott.

A Dallas Morning News poll conducted last month found that 38% of respondents said they would vote for O’Rourke.

Meanwhile, 45% said they would vote for Abbott.

That is an improvement for the Texas Democrat from January when Abbott held an 11 point lead over O’Rourke.

Additionally, the poll found that 49% of respondents said the state was going in the wrong direction, and 50% said it was going in the right direction.

Abbott’s approval rating sits at 50% approval and 46% disapproval in the latest poll.

That is up from September when his approval rating was at 45%.

But it is down double digits from April 2020 when he received a 61% approval rating.
