In a surprise moment at the end of his Dallas rally on the eve of Super Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden called former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke up to the stage — and vowed to put O’Rourke, who has said the government should forcibly seize assault rifles from Americans, in charge of gun-control efforts, Fox News reports.
Also at the rally, Biden accepted the endorsements of onetime rivals Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, as the Democratic party’s moderate wing rallied behind Biden to challenge anti-establishment frontrunner and self-described “democratic socialist” Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.
“Ladies and gentlemen, tomorrow, March 3, 2020, I will be casting my ballot for Joe Biden,” O’Rourke announced to applause at the rally’s conclusion.
“The man in the White House today poses an existential threat to this country. To our democracy. To free and fair elections. And we need somebody who can beat him. And in Joe Biden, we have that man.”
O’Rourke called President Trump an “existential threat” to “free and fair elections,” and urged rallygoers to view Biden as the “antithesis of Donald Trump,” someone who is “decent, kind, caring, and empathetic.”
O’Rourke has previously said he would like to seize all Americans’ AR-15 assault rifles, promising: “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” at a Democratic primary debate last year, shortly before his campaign collapsed.
“Yikes,” remarked Trump campaign spokesman Andrew Clark.
“Joe Biden promises Beto O’Rourke, who pushed for gun confiscation for legal gun owners, will ‘be the one who leads’ his gun control effort,” observed GOP Rapid Response Director Steve Guest. “2020 Democrats are unambiguous about their anti-Second Amendment agenda.”
