While other celebrities have been showing their support for their candidates of choice throughout the midterm elections campaign season, Beyonce threw down an impassioned last-minute endorsement for Democratic representative and senate candidate Beto O’Rourke yesterday afternoon (November 6).
The Lemonade singer uploaded an Instagram post only a few hours before most of Texas voting polls closed. In the photos, Beyonce is dressed in black sweats in order to highlight a black and white “Beto for Senate” trucker hat on her head.
“I’m feeling grateful for everyone before me who fought so hard to give us all the right to have a voice,” the “Formation” artist captioned the post. “We can’t voice our frustrations and complain about what’s wrong without voting and exercising our power to make it right. We need you. We all need each other, because when we are truly united we are unstoppable. Sending you all love and positivity on this happy voting day! Every vote counts. Every race matters. Everywhere.”
She followed the GIF with two more photo posts where the cap is in full view.
And while O’Rourke may have been busy doing some minute campaigning, he didn’t miss the shout-out, and he made sure to show his gratitude.
Even though you might not see Beyonce heavily campaigning very often, she has shown her support for the Democratic Party in the past. She, along with Jay Z, endorsed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential Election. Bey and Jay have also long supported former U.S. President Barack Obama.
