MSNBC contributor and Daily Beast reporter Betsy Woodruff reported that she had spoken with a veteran Democratic operative who thinks former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) is repeating the same mistakes he made in 2018 loss to Sen. Ted Cruz, namely relying on “his charisma and good looks” to win the Democratic Party’s presidential primary on Thursday.

“I was in touch this morning with a veteran Texas Democratic operative about Beto’s campaign, and he sent me an all-caps exclamation-point-laden text pointing out that Beto doesn’t have a delegate tracking operation,” Woodruff said.

“The point that he made was this is a guy who appears to be repeating the mistakes he made in 2018, thinking he can ride by on his charisma and good looks and not doing the basic blocking and tackling that successful campaigns depend on,” Woodruff said.
