Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Seventy San Antonio's first news, which only Parker. Welcome into Thursday. It's now official metro Aurore can confirmed that he is going to run for the presidency of the United States in twenty twenty. I'm guessing Joe Biden must be shaking in his. It a social media video Charlie announcing his candidacy rock referred to the United States is quote, the last great hope of earth, and if you're running for president Abraham Lincoln's not a bad person to quote, but at this particular moment, there's a couple of other quotes that come to mind. I was thinking of Andy Warhol's in the future. Everybody will be famous for fifteen minutes at how about Gertrude Stein. There's no there there Baidoa work enters this race has really the enigmatic candidate. He has several advantages. He has an almost Bobby Kennedy level ability to fire up a young aggressive, otherwise politically disconnected crowded. It's interesting because he's named after Bobby Kennedy. Robert Francis O'Rourke his use of social media, which is the number one way to run for office today. We would know who Alexandra Cossio Cortez was if it wasn't for social media. Look what President Trump has done with Twitter. He. Rox use of social media is absolutely expert. He has an engaging personality at an almost superhuman ability to raise money, he he could get people to open their wallets like nobody I've ever seen. He has very high name recognition. The joke is he's on a first name basis with democratic voters. And when the polls are taken an early decision states like Iowa and New Hampshire which have a lot to do with the eventual candidate victory Orrock, even before today's announcement has always been number two or number three or sometimes number one in the pulse of Democrats on the downside. I think previously he's benefited from what political analyst called the blank slate phenomenon. Would you see would you vote for the democrat people say, yes, what would you vote for candidate x? I don't know about that person. And that is kind of a problem that Iraq is now going to have as people. Learn more about him. He has a probably his biggest disadvantage interestingly is he is at his heart a white male child of privilege. His father was the county. Judge of El Paso county has father-in-law is a multimillionaire developer. And he comes along at a time when the Democratic Party is more and more focused on minority and gender issues. And there are key individuals in the Democratic Party, I quoted ocasio Cortes who have declared their open opposition to wealth the club for growth, which is a very powerful. Republican political action committee has already said it's going to make ads focusing on a rock status as a privileged rich kid. He has a very very thin record only two terms in the US house. He has an inability really so far to articulate positions on key issues when he was interviewed by the Washington Post last month, he answered. I got to think about that to all sorts of very very key issues that are facing this country. Also, he received nothing sort of fawning media coverage when he was running against Ted Cruz, not going to get that funding media coverage running against other Democrats is going to be a lot tougher road. A ho for Beto O'Rourke, but he's still in the top two or three candidates in the democratic primary..
