Supports Biden

3 Mar 2020

I’m voting for Joe Biden because he can beat Donald Trump; because having him at the top of the ticket will help our down-ballot candidates, especially in Texas; & because he can bring people together to reach the ambitious goals we have for our country.

Criticizes Trump

15 Aug 2019

President Trump, you show great weakness every single day—when you attack women of color, when you degrade the office of the president, and when you ask our allies to stoop to your level.

Abortion

Pro-Choice

2 May 2022

Every woman deserves the freedom to make their own decisions about their body, health care, and future. It’s never been more urgent to elect a governor who will always protect a woman’s right to abortion.

COVID-19

In addition to being fully vaccinated and boosted, I regularly test for COVID-19 while traveling the state for town hall meetings. I tested negative yesterday morning before testing positive today. I have mild symptoms and will be following public health guidelines.

Climate Change

Climate change is the defining existential threat of our time. Beto believes Texas should take the lead in confronting it head on. It’s how we’ll meet our responsibilities to those of future generations.

Education

We’re going to FULLY fund our public schools.

Beto O'Rourke said, in a tweet

Shouldering students with massive debts they can’t pay back isn’t just bad for them, it’s bad for Texas. $1.4 billion of student loan debt is more than 90 days past due in Dallas County alone. We need to make higher ed more affordable for all Texans.

First in wind power and first in solar potential. With our proud history as an energy producing state, Texas continues to lead the way.

The status quo won’t save our kids’ lives. Action will.
Pro-Gun Control

27 May 2022

There will be more Uvaldes, El Pasos, Sutherland Springs, and Santa Fes until we decide to put the lives of our kids ahead of the political careers of gun lobby politicians like Greg Abbott.

Immigration

Pro-immigration

29 May 2019

Above all else, immigration is about people. Living in and representing El Paso has allowed me to see the incredible contributions that immigrants make to our communities every single day and I want to share a few of their stories with you: Carlos is an immigration attorney. This picture was taken the day he became a US citizen, which he told me was the best day of his life. It took him 18 years to become a citizen because of our outdated and broken system. We need to fix that. Our plan does.

LGBTQ+

Proud to fight for equality alongside @HRC As governor, I will expand civil rights protections for LGBTQ+ Texans, support trans kids, and ensure that every person in this state can live freely as themselves and free from discrimination.

LGBTQ+ Supporter

23 Feb 2022

To every trans kid in Texas: You’re amazing. I’m proud of you. You belong right here in Texas, and I’ll fight for you to live freely as yourself and free from discrimination.

Racism

Five years ago, Michael Brown was shot dead by a police officer. In the years since, we’ve heard too many names, too many similar stories, to count. In each, we are reminded of an idea as urgent, and as ignored, today as it was when Michael was killed: Black Lives Matter.

Russian Invasion of Ukraine

Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine. We condemn this invasion of a sovereign country by Russia and we stand on the side of democracy wherever it is under attack — in Texas, across America, and throughout the world.
