Beto O'Rourke (D) is currently a member of the U.S. House representing Texas' 16th Congressional District, and is running in 2018 to unseat Ted Cruz in the U.S Senate.
Many of the posts on this site will more often be candidates running to take over spots in the House, as it is much more within reach for democrats this mid-term election, but tough as it may be, there are few causes that feel more worthy than getting Ted Cruz out of Congress.
Beto is from El Paso, TX, and believes healthcare is a right, not a privilege. He's also fighting hard to keep big money out of our democracy, and end political gerrymandering.
"Voters should pick their representatives, not the other way around."
