We’re learning a lot each day about Beto O’Rourke, but his wife, Amy Hoover Sanders is impressive in her own right, as an advocate for children and education. Before O’Rourke threw his hat in the ring, he sought Sanders’ counsel, as it was a family decision.
Metro shared that when Beto O’Rourke was running to unseat Ted Cruz, Sanders frequently took the lead, not only supporting her husband but stumping for him on her own. Amy Hoover Sanders currently works full-time in the education field and is the director of education development for La Fe Community Development Corporation and executive director of La Fe Preparatory school, a charter school, which she co-founded.
Ironically, it was Sanders who gave O’Rourke the push for him to run for Senate after initially showing reluctance about his Congressional run. After Donald Trump won in 2016, Sanders pushed her husband to run against Ted Cruz.
