Another One: Beto O’Rourke Joins 2020 Presidential Race

After narrowly losing to Ted Cruz in the Senate race this past fall, NBC News reports that Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke is officially entering the 2020 presidential race. In his announcement video, posted Thursday (Mar. 14), O’Rourke states, “The only way for us to live up to the promise of America is to give it our all and to give it for all of us.”

O’Rourke, who is joining an already crowded race for the Democratic bid (along with Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and MAYBE Joe Biden), made quite the impression during his race for the Senate. His youthful and progressive persona, drawing comparisons to Bobby Kennedy and Former President Barack Obama, allowed the former congressman from El Paso to earn a record-breaking $79 million in fundraising for his campaign (while rejecting PAC funds) and the highest number of votes for any Texas Democrat.

Let’s just say…it’s going to be an interesting election season.
