Beto O'Rourke calls for legalizing marijuana

Rep. Beto O'Rourke D-El Paso the 2018 Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Texas speaks during a campaign rally in El Paso Texas. Southern politics was a one-party affair for a long time. But now it’s a mixed bag

O'Rourke has staked out opposition to Trump and the Republican Party on issues likeimmigrationandracial justice, although he's at times also lent ambiguous support to progressive priorities like theGreen New DealandMedicare for All. Kirsten Gillibrand said of O'Rourke on Thursday. There was speculation that O'Rourke, who ran for Senate a year ago, would try again for the Senate and challenge Sen. "He could be a good candidate for Kamala Harris to add to the ticket", Branham said.

Mirroring his unsuccessful campaign model, O'Rourke embarked on a solo road trip in January to meet voters, where he had been chronicling the trip on social media and raising some eyebrows with weird antics such as a Instagram live stream from his dental hygienist's chair. O'Rourke, however, had even bigger plans in mind.

According to The Washington Post, Beto O'Rourke's popularity has grown after he challenged Senator Ted Cruz a year ago.

According to a Breitbart story posted on February 12, 2019, O'Rourke claims the "Green New Deal" was the "best proposal that I've seen" - ignoring its $93 trillion price tag.

At a house party in Muscatine on Thursday night, O'Rourke spoke about institutionalized racism, the harm done to African-Americans after emancipation and the failures of the Civil Rights movement but did not come down on either side of the reparations debate.

"I think the voters will decide", said Sen. He said only that, in speaking to others "who are much smarter on this issue", he's been told that the country needs to address its grim history with respect to racism before any fix can take place.

The campaign for Warren welcomed O'Rourke to the race but told supporters they needed to get on-board with her officially, with the field so large.

In his announcement video, O'Rourke said he would run a "positive campaign that seeks to bring out the very best from every single one of us, that seeks to unite a very divided country".
