This is the audience for tonight’s debate between Beto O’Rourke and Greg Abbott.

You’re not seeing things—this theater, which seats 1,000 people, is empty.

Because Greg Abbott REFUSED to debate if he had to face voters in person.

PATHETIC!!!

Beto is filling the room with facts, humanity, policy, and leadership.
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Republicans don’t want to debate because they have no platform. All they do is spread fear and division. They don’t even try to come up with a platform. Just misinformation, fear and a whole lot of racism.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
For the party of “tough people” there are so many of them who are really quite gutless.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
What a worthless coward. He needs to be voted out. Beto is winning this debate.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
WOW!! Abbot’s really for the people of Texas! This should tell Texas everything they need to know about him. Vote BETO for Texas!💙💙💙
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
That's why it's important for people to watch it online! I'm watching from Romania
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
What's even sadder is the fact that he's one of the few Republicans even bothering to show up at a debate at all. Cowards.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Just another case of cowardice from the GOP. Abbott's a spineless criminal as always.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Absolutely! Abbott can’t be transparent. Vote Beto!💙
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Not to mention, he agreed to a debate. On a Friday night. In Texas. Up against high school football.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Fear is a dangerous emotion.
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
But I thought the #GQP loved being surrounded by people... They *especially* encouraged all throughout the times COVID was ravishing the country, didn't they?
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
If only simply pathetic. Undemocratic as well.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
He’s a coward which is worse than pathetic.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Uvalde parents showed up and were refused entry. Abbott doesn't give a shit about Texas.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
If you’re in DFW you can watch live on ch 33.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Well Abbot a profile in courage. really ? 🤷‍♂️
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
I don’t understand why Abbott gets to have a say in who is or isn’t in the crowd. Shouldn’t the parameters be set by whomever is hosting the debate? Pls explain.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Coward. He has a lot to answer for, but yet he can’t face the real people of Texas.
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
 
Uvalde parents wanted to be there.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Ban wheelchairs for Governor’s!!! #GregAbbottIsACoward
 
COWARD. He is afraid being asked about Uvalde.
 
They should have insisted that politicians have to face voters and then done a debate like they did in Georgia with an empty chair.
 
 
Shameless coward👍🏾💙
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
If its on TV then Beto should make sure everyone knows why there is no one in the audience.
 
Fears the public, what else explains Abbott refusing a live audience!
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
 
Beto is willing to face the voters. He will give Texans a voice. #BetoforGovernor2022 #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
 
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Why the hell is no one there? They don’t want to hear Beto speak?
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
And yet inbred rubes will still support him 🤷🏻‍♂️
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Republicans are pathetic.
 
 
 
 
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Fucking pathetic!! Beto will win easily !!
 
 
If Abbott won't allow his own constituents to see this debate, there is no reason they should check his name on the ballot. He obviously doesn't give one twit about how people feel.
 
In reply to @GregAbbott_TX
@GregAbbott_TX is a coward, but, you already knew that!
 
 
In reply to @GregAbbott_TX
@GregAbbott_TX refused to debate in front of Texas constituents. He's had eight years to solve the problems he complains about- instead, he accepts bribes and wastes taxpayers money on political theater.
#VoteAbbottOut
 
Beto destroyed Abbott in tonight’s debate!
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
And both candidates agreed to have it that way so there's that!
 
 
Hey Texas check this out!

Abbott looked nervous to me. I think that’s a sign he wasn’t truthful.
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Looks like Greg abbot learned from the democrats

In reply to @MeidasTouch
is a candy ass. I thought Texans liked tough guys but Abbott is afraid of people and the Lt. Gov. runs from people on his porch. 😂
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
 
 
I guess it’s hard to face the public when you are leading it by example!!
 
If someone can't face the voters, they have no business being in politics.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Cowardly, for sure. But I’m thinking it will just emphasize Beto’s calm, sane logic. Nothing for Abbott to hide behind….😊
 
 
 
In reply to @BetoORourke
@BetoORourke is bringing down the house! @GregAbbott_TX is a failure and must go. What a disgrace. VOTE FOR BETO #BetoForGovernor
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Why do you hate the disabled ?
 
Abbott is a chicken liver
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
F-ing COWARD @GovAbbott . Beto is going to kick your ASS in ROE-VEMBER... Your a real piece of 💩. Your days coming when Justice & Good wins over Cruelty n Evil.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
I’m still trying to figure out WHY Beto agreed to these terms.
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Abbott is a chicken shit.. we gotta vote. We need #BetoforGovernor2022
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Not sure if it had anything to do with that, but anyway you dont need an audience to have a debate. Wish people would stop being dumb along with stupid. Each need to speak, and be respected on what is said. As always what is said can easily be fact check, stop hate vote Abbott.
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
 
 
Coward because he's a grifting liar!
 
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
Why? Because he doesn’t work for the people of TX
 
In reply to @MeidasTouch
This is actually better. It’s not a game show.
