Beto O’Rourke delivered a fiery concession speech tonight in Texas after losing the Senate race to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz — dropping an F-bomb that aired on live television.
O’Rourke received a lot of national support and some Democrats were hoping he could maybe be the one to turn Texas blue, but those hopes were dashed Tuesday night, even as some pundits speculate about his potential future in the Democratic party.
O’Rourke thanked his supporters and said he still feels hopeful in his speech. At one point, he dropped the F-bomb… while MSNBC was covering his speech live:
“I want to thank this amazing campaign of people. Not a dime from a single PAC, all people, all the time, in every single part of Texas. All of you showing the country how you do this. I’m so fucking proud of you guys!”
A few minutes later, when MSNBC cut away, Brian Williams said, “Sorry about the F-bomb.”
