Beto O'Rourke announces that he is running for president in 2020

O'Rourke, a former congressman who lost a Texas Senate seat to incumbent Ted Cruz in the 2018 midterm elections, confirmed his run in a text to NBC affiliate station KTSM. "It's a big part of why I'm running".

On immigration, O'Rourke said, "All of us, wherever you live, can acknowledge that if immigration is a problem, it's the best possible problem for this country to have". O'Rourke has Irish and Welsh ancestry.

A onetime guitarist for an El Paso punk band called Foss, O'Rourke boosted his already considerable nonpolitical street cred in the Senate race with a viral video showing him skateboarding across a Whataburger restaurant parking lot. O'Rourke barged into last year's Texas Senate race nearly laughably early in March 2017.

Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020

His long-shot bid drew widespread media attention and excited voters in a party desperate for fresh political faces.

Former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke joined the 2020 presidential race on Thursday, ending months of speculation about whether he would join the throng of Democrats vying for the chance to run against President Donald Trump. According to the latest edition of Vanity Fair, Mr O'Rourke said: "You can probably tell that I want to run. I do".

US Democrat Beto O'Rourke has said that he is running for president in 2020. "And, of course, he's someone that comes, like I do, from the center of the country".

On the day of President Trump's State of the Union address to Congress in February, O'Rourke sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey, and said he was thinking about running for president. He took a solo road trip through the Southwest earlier this year, documenting his travels in a series of Medium posts reminiscent of Jack Kerouac. He visited with students in the key swing state of Wisconsin. Both rallies drew thousands, and put the two men's divergent positions on the border wall on sharp display.

O'Rourke almost upset Sen. A recent Public Policy Polling survey gave O'Rourke 47 percent to Trump's 41 percent.

Now, the last main piece of the 2020 election puzzle will be former vice president Joe Biden, who has said he will reveal his political plans soon.
