It didn’t take long at all for two 2020 Democratic presidential candidates to take the gloves off and go after Robert “Beto” O’Rourke.
On Thursday morning, O’Rourke announced at the crack of dawn that he’s throwing his hat in the ring and joining the already crowded 2020 Democratic field.
Almost immediately after the announcement, Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey went after O’Rourke with emails and tweets.
Harris sent out a fundraising email to supporters on Thursday and begged people for money so she can defeat O’Rourke in the Democratic presidential primary.
“We are facing something unprecedented: a record number of Democrats — including a record number of women and people of color — are running for President,” Harris wrote. “This is greatly encouraging for the future of our country, but there is still a long path ahead of us.”
