Beto O'Rourke Quotes

My excitement for Beto O'Rourke continues. And he can actually win! I'm going to volunteer as much as I can in the final 50 days before November 6 to help mobilize voters to get to the polls. 

I signed up to manage a "Pop Up Office," where volunteers will gather to go block walking and phone banking. I also volunteered our house to be used as a Pop Up Office every day from 8am-3pm. 

When I went to the training, the facilitator suggested that we put a motivational quote on the walls. I decide to find some Beto quotes to post. However, my search didn't yield much, which is crazy because he's such an articulate public speaker! 

So here's my contribution to the inter webs: Beto Quotes

“We can get into name-calling and talk about why the other person is such an awful guy, or we can focus on the big things we want to do for the future of our country, for the generations that will succeed us...We can focus on the small, mean, petty stuff, or we can be big, bold, courageous, and confident.”—Beto O’Rourke on CNN

“Texas is one of the most gerrymandered states in the Union. It is also a non-voting state, and those two things are connected...There are some people who are not supposed to vote. There are some people’s voices that are not supposed to be heard. It’s on us to run a campaign that brings in everyone from every community—every community within every community—into this campaign to make sure that they are actually heard.”—Beto O’Rourke on Real Time with Bill Maher

“Everything that they care about—everything that they’ve told their kids about—is on the line...Our kids are going to ask us, ‘When you had the chance to do something in 2018 when they were talking about walls and Muslin bans and the press is the enemy of the people, what did you guys do?’ And we’re going to tell them that we and the 28 million of Texas helped this country get back on track and in the right direction.”—Beto O’Rourke on Real Time with Bill Maher

“Folks will never have to wonder who it is I represent or who I’m voting for; it’s going to be the people of Texas every single time.”—Beto O’Rourke on Real Time with Bill Maher

“I hope, if nothing else, we’re able to give the people of Texas our honesty and have the courage of our convictions on the issues that matter most.”—Beto O’Rourke on Ellen

This moment will define us—I feel—forever. That’s what’s so thrilling about this moment. We will decide the future right now.”—Beto O’Rourke on Ellen
