Beyoncé Throws Support Behind Beto O'Rourke on Election Day

Posted By on Tue, Nov 6, 2018 at 4:34 PM

Though she waited until there's less than three hours left of voting in Texas, the queen that is Beyoncé has backed Beto O'Rourke.

The Houston native and hubby Jay-Z may have backed Hillary Clinton during most of her 2016 presidential campaign, but Beyoncé waited until Election Day to voice her support of Beto.

At roughly 4:10 p.m. on Tuesday (polls close at 7 p.m.), Beyoncé shared a photo on Instagram wearing a "BETO" cap like LeBron James and Gregg Popovich did in the weeks leading up to the midterm elections.
Her post could have pushed more fans to the polls if it had come even earlier in the day, and a free concert (like fellow supporters Willie Nelson and Intocable) would have been one hell of a rally. But shoutout to Queen Bey for pushing the blue wave in Texas.
