Beto O’Rourke didn’t eat crow, humble pie or even his words after losing to Ted Cruz. He ate dirt instead.

O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post.

“He brought some home for the family to eat, too.”

The profile was published as O’Rourke joined other Democrats in signaling his support for a range of controversial ideas, including abolishing the Electoral College.
