O’Rourke to teach Texas Politics course at Texas State University

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Former Congressman and Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is going back to school.

Pending finalization of his hiring, O’Rourke will be a new member of the faculty at Texas State University in San Marcos.

He’s going to teach a course on Texas politics.

O’Rourke was an unsuccessful challenger to Senator Ted Cruz in 2018 and a year later decided he would run for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

That campaign lasted just a few months and recently, O’Rourke has been making appearances on behalf of the Joe Biden campaign.

O’Rourke is expected to begin instructing the online course in the spring of 2021.
