Patrick is not running…
Interesting that a Obama meeting has occurred with the new Democratic flavor of the month already, eh?
In a move that raises more suspicion that he’s seriously considering a 2020 grab for the presidency, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) reportedly met with Barack Obama at the former president’s offices in Washington, D.C., according to a scoop from The Washington Post.
The meeting took place Nov. 16, the Post reports, amid pressure from Obama aides eager for O’Rourke to capitalize on his momentum and run. The paper did not specify its sourcing on the meeting.
The El Paso, Texas, native narrowly lost his bid to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last month, but his campaign revitalized Democrats’ hopes that the right candidate could turn the reddest of states blue.
Though O’Rourke said during his Senate campaign that he didn’t have his eye on the presidency, he changed his tune at a town hall in El Paso last week and said that he and his wife had “made a decision not to rule anything out.”….
What about Joe Biden, Obama’s Vice President for 8 years?
