Grab a cup of cocoa, sit back, press play, and be prepared to have all of life's troubles melt away. Beto is going to make everything better with a little help from a furry friend.
Democratic El Paso congressman Beto O'Rourke, who is running for Senate against sitting Republican Ted Cruz, spent a little quality time with Rainbow the bunny. O'Rourke is known to be an animal lover after a video on Facebook of him rescuing two dogs on the side of a highway went viral. Cruz, on the other hand, has a 13% rate on the compassion index from the Animal Welfare Institute.
Enjoy the 21 seconds of bliss. Twitter did!

To be fair, people thought Cruz liked animals too.
