Beto O'Rourke launches 2020 bid for president, Texas TV station confirms

Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020

Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020

Ted Cruz of Texas, has entered the presidential race after months of speculation and meetings with high-ranking Democrats, including former president Barack Obama.

In the article, O'Rourke did not outright say he is running, be he said things like "I want to run".

O'Rourke confirmed his plan to formally announce his candidacy on Thursday morning to El Paso NBC affiliate KTSM.

"I'm really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents", O'Rourke reportedly texted the station. "This city is the best example of this country at its best".

"You can probably tell that I want to run", O'Rourke told Vanity Fair.

President Trump campaigned hard for Cruz, lobbing attacks against O'Rourke as he campaigned in the Lone Star State.

An influential Iowa poll released last week showed O'Rourke as the first choice of just 5 percent of Democratic voters, behind four contenders, including former Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet declared a bid, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. 'I do. I think I'd be good at it'.

O'Rourke became a national star during his 2018 Senate bid previous year, despite the fact that he was defeated by incumbent Ted Cruz.

"I thought you were supposed to win before you run for president", Trump told reporters in December.
