‘As Bad as This May Sound…’: MSNBC’s Ruhle Wonders If Beto O’Rourke Will Benefit from Post-Shooting Media Blitz

‘Could this moment be a chance for Beto to gain some momentum?’

EXCERPT:

RUHLE: "Maria, Beto has said he is running in the name of decency and democracy. As bad as this may sound, could this moment be a chance for Beto to gain some momentum?"
KUMAR: "I think so. I mean, when you look at who the president is most afraid of, you often hear within inner circles that Beto is the one that concerns him. And it’s not only because he was able to capture the imagination of progressive Texas, he got over 500,000 Republicans to vote for him and he got a lot of independents to vote for him. Let’s not forget Obama lost Texas by 16 points, four years later Hillary lost 9 and two years later Beto lost by a merely two. And it's significant because right now Arizona just went purple. That's 11 electoral votes. Texas has 38 electoral votes."
