Democratic Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke played “coy” when asked by a BBC reporter if he supported common ownership of the means of production, a common definition for socialism.

BBC News reporter James Cook wrote a profile of O’Rourke—the sheer amount of profiles on O’Rourke has even been lampooned by The Onionand noted Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) has cast his election fight with him as a battle “between socialism and the American free enterprise system.”

Cook, writing in first person, said he told Cruz that O’Rourke hasn’t officially advocated such a position, but the first-term senator had a ready retort:

The senator adds that “as Margaret Thatcher said, the problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people’s money”. More
