Beto O’Rourke’s $5 Trillion Climate Change Plan, In Context

Beto O’Rourke needs to regain some of the momentum that accompanied the launch of his presidential campaign in March. His campaign has floundered in recent weeks, overshadowed by the rise of South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has surpassed O’Rourke in recent polls. The former congressman and failed Senate candidate is currently in sixth place, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average, and is just fourth among white male candidates in the crowded Democratic primary field. Even the ladies of The View are starting to lose interest in his candidacy.
