Beto Announces 2020 Run

Beto Announces 2020 Run

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.

O'Rourke, the former Texas congressman who excited progressives with his close Senate loss to Republican Ted Cruz previous year, became the latest entrant in the expanding 2020 group of Democratic primary candidates.

Democrats are targeting six congressional seats in Texas in 2020, primarily in suburban areas where O'Rourke did well.

"This is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us", O'Rourke said seated alongside his wife Amy. And it remains to be seen how he will fare in a Democratic nominating battle with a heavy emphasis on progressive policies and diversity.

O'Rourke heads to Iowa amid some signs his popularity there has waned in the past several weeks, as he has publicly deliberated about a run while more than a dozen Democrats leapt into the race.

O'Rourke has the potential to occupy a unique place in the still-forming 2020 Democratic primary field.

Is Beto O'Rourke pandering or is his message lost in translation? Republican critics frequently refer to him by his given name, a jab meant to underscore that he is not of Hispanic descent. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. 'I do. I think I'd be good at it'.

O'Rourke launched his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination Thursday with a video announcement from his couch. He's also planning a campaign rally in El Paso on March 30.

Klobuchar, asked about O'Rourke on Thursday, let out a hearty, "Welcome!" "The challenges that we face right now-the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy, and our climate-have never been greater, and they will either consume us, or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America".

"He's not going to get the money he got when he ran for Senate".

Building a national presidential operation, however, is a different matter.

Confirming his run to Texan TV outlet KTSM, Mr O'Rourke said: "I'm really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents".

Last month, he appeared to try to separate himself further from that wing of the party when he pointedly called himself a capitalist. "There are people in that are going to have resources from past elections and in terms of having lists and things because he was running against Ted Cruz, and I just view it as you run your own race, you appeal to people".
