At The Drive-In’s Cedric Bixler-Zavala has shared a message to former bandmate Beto O’Rourke, expressing his desire that the politician runs for President in 2020.

On Tuesday, the US went to the polls to vote in the 2018 midterm elections. While the election resulted in Democrats taking control of the House of Representatives, Republicans ended up just adding to their majority in the Senate.

However, one of the most publicised political battles took place between Texas’ Republican Senator Ted Cruz, and Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke. While O’Rourke was narrowly defeated in the end, one of his former bandmates is hoping that the politician might take a run at the top job for 2020.

Back in September, we spoke about how Beto O’Rourke had been in a band with At The Drive-In’s Cedric Bixler-Zavala back in the early ’90s. Named Foss, the group didn’t exactly go too far, releasing a handful of independent records and touring North America before breaking up.

Now, Zavala has taken to Twitter to endorse O’Rourke for a 2020 Presidential run.

“I don’t care if [you] lost,” Zavala wrote. “You made them tremble with the simple prospect of real change. You are one of us. I have nothing but respect and admiration for you. I’m in tears. I can only hope you run for president.”

“Keep filming. Keep challenging. Keep fighting,” he urged. “Keep accountability lit under their feet. Keep showing them your bullet scars. Keep showing them the cages. Keep reminding them they work for us. Keep reminding them that we are all part of the human condition.”

“Nothing but mad respect to Beto’s family for going out there with him.”

While Beto O’Rourke hasn’t responded to Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s calls for a Presidential campaign, you might recall how he made headlines back in September when he was filmed playing air-drumming to The Who’s ‘Baba O’Reilly’ in a fast food drive-through.

“This may be the best song ever written,” he explains, before turning up the stereo to full volume to kick off a solid air-drumming routine.

“That’s all I want to do, is play air drums for The Who,” he remarked. “Keith Moon! Tell me there’s a better drummer!”

Here’s hoping Beto O’Rourke will help make the White House a much more rockin’ place.
