Beto O'Rourke plans first Iowa visit amid 2020 speculation

Washington Governor Jay Inslee speaks during a rally at the beginning of the March For Science in Seattle Washington

O'Rourke released a video Monday night from Texas, announcing his support for Giddens and wearing a University of Northern Iowa cap.

Sherrod Brown in Iowa before he decided not to run for president in 2020, are also assisting O'Rourke in Iowa, per Politico.

Following the premiere of an HBO documentary chronicling his unsuccessful 2018 US Senate campaign, "Running with Beto", at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, this past weekend, O'Rourke deflected a question about his 2020 plans by praising local candidates featured in the film.

Chris Evans, a spokesman for O'Rourke, confirmed in an email to Reuters that O'Rourke will be in Waterloo, Iowa, campaigning for Giddens on Saturday afternoon. "UNI, we're counting on you, and we look forward to seeing you soon".

O'Rourke's possible foray into the presidential race would be the culmination of an unlikely political rise that began with the 3-term congressman's decision to challenge Republican Sen.

While O'Rourke put in a lot of miles chasing the Texas senate seat he narrowly lost to Ted Cruz, he never appeared in any of the traditional early voting states, according to the Texas Tribune.

The moves suggest O'Rourke is ramping up for a presidential bid, including his first trip to Iowa as a candidate or prospective candidate.

Other Democratic presidential candidates have already visited Iowa ahead of O'Rourke's visit.

O'Rourke is not the only 2020 contender slated to drum up enthusiasm for Giddens, who is running against former GOP state Rep. Walt Rogers.

A Des Moines Register/CNN Iowa poll released this weekend found that O'Rourke has dropped six percentage points from the first Iowa poll that was released in December.

"We want to play as great a role as possible making sure that this country lives up to our expectations, to the promise, to the potential that we all know her to have", O'Rourke said.

He will also travel to eastern Iowa beginning Thursday with a meet-and-greet event in Burlington, Democratic sources in the state said.

The Democrat has been highly critical of US President Donald Trump's immigration policies.
