Outgoing Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called Texas Senate hopeful Beto O’Rourke a “loser” this week; saying the party shouldn’t “promote” the failed candidate to run for president in 2020.
“If Beto O’Rourke wants to go and run for president, God bless him, he should put his hat in and make his case. But, he lost. You don’t usually promote a loser to the top of party,” said Emanuel.
Recent polls show the Texas Congressman in third place among likely Democratic nominees; trailing former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
O’Rourke made national headlines this week when he publicly reversed course on his previous comments regarding a White House run; refusing to rule out a potential showdown with President Trump.
