Beto Late Than Never: 2020 [CREWNECK FEMININE TEE]
I cried twice last night. The first time was at about 9:10pm when ABC called the race between Beto and Cruz. The second was at 11:14pm while watching Beto concede.
Like a lot of my fellow progressive Texans, I suspect, my first reaction was a mix of exasperation, exhaustion, and “of fucking course we voted Ted Cruz back in.”
The second sob session was different. It hit me deep, listening to Beto talk, how much hope I’d allowed myself to experience. How I had gone, over the past 15 or so months, from “nope, never” to “unlikely, but possible,” to “maybe, but prolly not,” and, finally, to “I believe this can happen.”
What I didn’t realize was that something else was smuggled in with that hope.

Important note: This shirt is not officially affiliated with the Beto for Texas (or Beto for America) campaign, and any dollars you gift (whatever you pay beyond the cost of the shirt + printing) will not be donated to Beto. It was created prior to Beto announcing his run for President, with the hope of him running for Senate in Texas again in 2020 (or Governor!).
