Storyline

The year-long campaign of Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke for the 2018 Texas senate seat is presented. He almost achieved what was arguably seen as the improbable to impossible by coming close to upsetting the incumbent, Republican Senator Ted Cruz, in what is one of the bluest states state-wide in the nation. That uphill climb included being little known at the beginning of the campaign outside his El Paso district - he planning on visiting all two hundred fifty-four counties in the state in making himself better known - and not accepting any political action committee (PAC) moneys, which most politicians do, in funding his campaign. Specific issues are highlighted as they become more integral in the minds of the public and thus politicians, including President Donald Trump's push to build a border wall and his associated classification that all illegal Mexican immigrants are criminals, and the number of mass shootings in the country - especially the one at Santa Fe High School ...

On the road with Beto
30 May 2019 | by carltaSee all my reviews

After watching Beto's live-streams campaigning across the state of Texas for two years, it was uplifting to see the more vulnerable side of Beto and his family. His family's sacrifices to run for public office were huge. Beto is a transparent, authentic, funny, compassionate, and brilliant man and this film shows that. This film captures his strengths and vulnerabilities with unblinking honesty. Kudos to the filmmakers. Outstanding work.
