Beto O'Rourke Joins Democratic Presidential Field

Beto O’Rourke to Announce 2020 Presidential Bid

"This is a defining moment of truth for this country, and for every single one of us", O'Rourke said in a video announcing his candidacy.

"Perhaps most importantly of all, because our very existence depends on it, we can unleash the ingenuity and creativity of millions of Americans who want to ensure that we squarely confront the challenge of climate change before it's too late", O'Rourke said.

O'Rourke hired hundreds of campaign field staffers for his 2018 Senate bid, helping his party pick up two congressional seats and a numbers of other offices across the state, even as he fell just short of defeating Sen.

O'Rourke narrowly lost a senate campaign to Sen. Cruz called on O'Rourke in November to clarify his stances and urged reporters to do the same; after endorsing O'Rourke, the Dallas Morning News echoed Cruz's calls for clarification.

The 46-year-old announced his 2020 Democratic primary bid Thursday with an online post.

In recent interviews, O'Rourke has refused to place himself on the ideological spectrum-saying he's "not into labels"-and offered unclear answers when asked about his views on Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and other popular progressive agenda items".

"He made Texas a bluer state than it was", said Green.

But, Crenshaw said, "We need to speak to the younger generation".

The White House run will also prompt greater scrutiny of his policy proposals and track record in Congress.

O'Rourke, whose given name is Robert Francis, acquired his nickname while growing up in El Paso. "We're going to be much better prepared on the money side and the messaging, as a party".

On Wednesday, just hours before his presidential announcement, Vanity Fair published a cover story profile of O'Rourke, complete with photos by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz. "I think people want us to rise above the pettiness, the smallness", O'Rourke told CNN at a later Thursday campaign stop in Burlington, Iowa.

When asked about O'Rourke's entrance into the presidential race this morning, President Trump referred to O'Rourke's energetic hand movements in his announcement video and asked, "Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?"
