How old is Beto O’Rourke?

How old is Beto O’Rourke?

In an election where the president is currently 73, the Democratic front-runner is 76, and his two next closest opponents are 70 and 78, voters have a right to know how old every candidate is.

The problem with Beto is, though, that he looks like a different age in every single picture.

While Trump, Warren,  Sanders, and Biden all look like people in their 70s, photos of O’Rourke from the last eight years show his age anywhere from 16 to 55.

That’s a dang near 40-year age gap.

So what is it?

Is he 50?

He’s 46. Beto O’Rourke’s age is 46. But he’ll be 47 in a week! His birthday is Sept. 26.

That Beto, always keeping us guessing.
