Betting odds are up on a site I used to use, and this guy isn’t listed, and I know he lost the race to Ted Cruz but for me, Beto O’Rourke seems like a legit possible candidate.

One, most dem candidates blow. Elizabeth Warren, really?

Two, the guy BARELY lost to Ted Cruz in a state that is historically always R. If he did that in Texas, that speaks to the guy’s ability to run on a platform and be likeable. It also perhaps means it’s a major state O’Rourke could steal in the race. Trump only won 52/43 to a totally unlikeable Clinton who’s a NY’er now. Beto could beat Trump here.

Three, he’s not boring retread.

Booker seemed like an obvious strong candidate but he’s single and gay. I didn’t know that. My buddy’s, one of whom taught in Newark for 20 years and another who does business there all the time, told me it’s the best kept secret about the guy. I had no idea.

I have no problem at all with his sexuality but there’s no way he’s winning if he’s hiding it.

I think the rumors about him are just because he's single, never been married. He has addressed it occasionally, most recently (as far as I can tell in 2 minutes of google) in 2013: https://www.essence.com/news/cory-booker-not-gay-unmarried-president/

Thinking about this a little more, I think it’s really tough to sell to the American people to vote for a guy who couldn’t even win his race for Senator.

Has O’Rourke held office in any major capacity?

These guys are in Newark all the time. They were giving details about his known partners. It’s known there evidently. Just not to the outside world.
Are they sleeping with him? Do they have firsthand knowledge? If not... then it's rumors.

He's a member of the House of Representatives.
