Beto O’Rourke Raised $80 million to take on Ted Cruz.
He famously raised $6 million in the first 24 hours of announcing his presidential run and blew through an estimated $17 million.

Consider the sorts of people who were willing to go on believing in him and writing him million-dollar checks. Quick hit them up with your best Brooklyn Bridge sales pitch.

“We think Beto is an extraordinary candidate,” Simone Coxe said.
