Beto O’Rourke is back in the political limelight, as he recently announced his bid for governor of Texas.
Last time, the controversial left-wing candidate was able to raise large sums of money for his campaign, and he retains many supporters.
But one angry Texan who showed up at a campaign event won’t be voting for Beto.
O’Rourke, a former congressman, just kicked off his campaign and he’s hoping for a better result this time around.
He served on the El Paso City Council for 7 years between 2005 and 2012, and was a congressman between 2012 and 2018.
O’Rourke has been a popular Democrat in the state of Texas for much of that time, but he also has his fair share of detractors.
And one of those critics got very, very vocal this week.
From Fox News:
Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s 2022 gubernatorial campaign got underway just days ago, but at least one voter in the state has already let the former congressman know what he thinks.
‘We don’t want you here,’ the man shouted at O’Rourke during a recent campaign event, according to a video posted on social media.
The man interrupted the otherwise supportive crowd, and wasn’t afraid to tell Beto exactly what he thought of him.
The Democrat candidate tried not to pay much attention, but this particular citizen wasn’t about to give up.
O’Rourke hasn’t been very popular with farmers, and the man said “on behalf of the ranchers, and oil and gas farmers” during his protest:
On behalf of the ranchers, the oil and gas and farmers, I’m in your grill telling you don’t come back.
Nobody wants you here. No means no. Three times – you lost twice. No means no!
The heckler added, “you ain’t taking my guns, either.”
O’Rourke received a lot of criticism around the state for his plans to take “assault-style” weapons from gun owners in Texas.

At the time, he said he’d “take your AR-15, your AK-47,” and he repeated the pledge this past weekend on CNN.
Beto faces plenty of critics, though current Governor Greg Abbott’s office isn’t taking the challenge lightly, especially considering O’Rourke’s fundraising potential.
Then there’s well-known actor Matthew McConaughey, who is reportedly considering running.
He might do it, too, as a recent survey showed that the actor was actually ahead of both Abbot and O’Rourke, which might’ve come as a surprise.
