If Senate seats were decided by viral videos and fawning national media profiles, O’Rourke would win in a landslide. He’s gone viral defending NFL players’ right to protest during the national anthem and skateboarding. So far, O’Rourke has capitalized on the hype machine. His fundraising’s strong and he’s going on “Ellen.” But problems may lurk since voters sometimes punish candidates for too much ambition, especially if they’ve not won anything yet.
