Does Beto O’Rourke’s dog want him to run for president?
Vanity Fair published a lengthy feature on Wednesday about former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, as part of the rollout of his 2020 presidential run, which began officially Thursday with an announcement video.
In the Vanity Fair article, O’Rourke said that the driving force behind his decision was his wife Amy, who supported him after he lost to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who told him that if he didn’t run, “You didnt do everything you could.”
So while they presented a united front, there’s one big question remaining from the spread. Does Beto’s dog want him in the race?
O’Rourke was shot by Annie Leibovitz for the magazine, and the famous photographer caught a couple of haunting looks of concern from Artemis.

It’s almost like he knows his owner is about to be away from home for the next two years, after having traversed the state of Texas for much of the past year.
Or he just doesn’t like Beto’s odds? Dogs sense things in advance of humans. Is he aware of an impending shellacking? Artemis was in almost every shotof Leibovitz spread. In all of them, he doesn’t necessarily look happy.
