National committeeman for the Texas Young Republicans explains Beto's appeal to voters

On Thursday's episode of  "Pat Gray Unleashed," Pat Gray and Keith Malinak welcomed Chris Betts, the national committeeman for the Texas Young Republicans.

Betts, who is in his early 30s and heavily active among the conservative grassroots movement, offered insight into the current state of politics in Texas from a millennial's perspective.

Pat touched on Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke's rise in the state and asked Betts whether or not a red wave is gaining traction in Texas. O'Rourke is running a tougher-then-expected campaign against incumbent Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.

"How many text messages are you getting from the Beto O'Rourke campaign?" Pat asked.

"Unfortunately, I haven't gotten any," Betts replied. "I tell people to ask for signs and goodies to run their money supply down."

"So, does it seem to you like it does to us that Beto is the one who has created some buzz around his campaign," Pat asked.

"Yeah, he's the new guy, he's on the scene, and he preaches the free stuff thing," Betts replied. "He's just kind of trending on Twitter right now."

Betts also addressed the hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and stated that he was curious as to why Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, did not come forward when George W. Bush considered Kavanaugh for a federal court pick.

"Do you think that the two parties have any sort of fear of the American people anymore?" Pat inquired.

Betts said that some politicians feel entitled once they get elected, and may be worried by voters who have been energized by President Donald Trump.

Pat said he felt hopeful for millennials after the conversation.
