Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), who served as former President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, said that Democrats shouldn’t support a “loser” like Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) in 2020 but rather should go with a proven winner.

“If Beto O’Rourke wants to go and run for president, God bless him. He should put his hat in and make his case. But he lost. You don’t promote a loser to the top of the party,” Emanuel said during an interview Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Emanuel made the comments about O’Rourke while discussing why House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was the right person to lead the Democratic Party into 2020.
