Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke announces 2020 presidential run

Beto O’Rourke to Announce 2020 Presidential Bid

Beyond a previously announced event in Waterloo, Iowa on Saturday, O'Rourke is expected to visit other towns in eastern Iowa, traditionally a Democratic stronghold, Politico said.

Beto O'Rourke will seek the Democratic nomination to run for US president, a source close to his campaign and an El Paso TV station said Wednesday. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) for "so much hand movement" while he speaks was another example of Trump insulting others for something he is known for.

O'Rourke joins a widening field of Democrats who have announced exploratory committees including Cory Booker, Jay Inslee, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, former U.S. Rep John Delaney, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, John Hickenlooper, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Bill Weld, Marianne Williamson, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

"'There may be an open question as to whether the President, then the candidate, sought to collude with the Russian government in 2016", O'Rourke told CNN last October during his failed Senate run.

Unlike many of his opponents who launched campaigns while barely registering in public opinion polls, O'Rourke begins in sixth place in the RealClearPolitics average of polls, receiving an average of 5 percent.

His social media presence and enormous fundraising power lifted him from a little-known three-term congressman to a Democratic rockstar with a following that stretched well beyond Texas.

This seems like a odd move for a team that's supposedly in rebuild-mode, and though I don't love the fit, I do love the player. Adams originally entered the National Football League with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent out of CT in 2016.

The Iowa trip will be the first test of whether O'Rourke can convert the enthusiasm he built in Texas to the national stage.

With his presidential effort, O'Rourke is hoping to leverage the fame he gained with his Senate race.

Party liberals have zeroed in on O'Rourke's refusal while in the U.S. House of Representatives to co-sponsor legislation providing "Medicare-for-all" and free college tuition, although during his Senate campaign O'Rourke promoted the idea of universal healthcare.

"This moment of peril produces, perhaps, the greatest moment of promise for this country", he said in the video which was posted on the El Paso Times website. "It's a big part of why I'm running".

"Well, I think he's got a lot of hand movement".
