Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke announces 2020 presidential run

Beto O’Rourke to Announce 2020 Presidential Bid

Beto O'Rourke will announce on Thursday that he is running for president in 2020, according to El Paso TV station KTSM-TV.

Trump told reporters Thursday in the Oval Office that O'Rourke, who just announced that he's running for president, uses his hands so much that it might indicate he's "crazy".

O'Rourke plans to follow his announcement with a trip to Iowa, the state that will hold the first Democratic nominating contest in February 2020.

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.

Newly official presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke says the November election may be the "best way" to determine President Trump's fate - a stance that softens his earlier call for impeachment to proceed.

The trip will serve as the first test of whether O'Rourke can carry to the national political stage the pop-star appeal he showed in Texas past year, drawing enthusiastic crowds and $80 million in campaign donations.

In El Paso, Trump ridiculed O'Rourke as "a young man who's got very little going for himself, except he's got a great first name".

His track record during six years in the US House of Representatives is thin.

His initial challenge in the Democratic presidential race will be to distinguish himself from candidates sharing his positions on key progressive issues, such as universal health care and refusing donations from corporate political action committees. O'Rourke accused Trump of stoking "false fear" about immigrants.

He told the network: 'How Congress chooses to address those set of facts and the findings which I believe are soon to see from the Mueller report is up to them.

In 2012, he won against incumbent Democratic congressmanSilvestre Reyes in a Latino-majority district, and was re-elected twice before giving up his seat to run against Cruz.
