EL PASO, TEXAS — Soothing fears that’d he’d have to follow up on his pledge to serve the length of a potential term as a junior Senator from Texas, Beto O’Rourke conceded to incumbent Ted Cruz late Tuesday night after one of the tightest midterm races in the country.   Although Republicans gained two seats in the Senate, Democrats were not only able to take control of the House of Representatives, but were able to begin fundraising for a Presidential Bid in 2020 by Mr. O’Rourke.

“We were really worried about Texas towards the end,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.  “When we saw Beto running against Cruz we thought it was just a publicity stunt to build some political capital for 2020.  But then we saw him rising in the polls as the campaign went on.” Mr. Schumer expressed his greatest concern when Mr. O’Rourke vowed unequivocally to serve out the full length of his term if he were to be elected to the Senate.  “I was watching the debate from home, and my bowl of popcorn went flying out of shock after he said that one,” Schumer claimed.

In a statement to The Skidmo’ Daily, representatives for Mr. O’Rourke said “While Beto has not thought about any potential elections except for this previous one, what we do know is that he will keep fighting for the working people of this country.”  

While Mr. Cruz could not be reached for comment, we were redirected to the TED FOR AMERICA 2020 SUPER PAC for any further requests.
