Beto O'Rourke jumps into the ring for 2020 presidential race

Trump Challenges Beto

Ted Cruz. Still, the Senate race thrust O'Rourke, who served three terms in the House, into the national spotlight.

Beto O'Rourke said he feels called to run in 2020, according to a Vanity Fair profile published Wednesday on the potential Democratic Party presidential contender.

The 46-year-old mounted a stronger-than-expected challenge to Republican Sen.

And when Mr. Trump visited El Paso last month to talk about border security, O'Rourke held a dueling rally that captured the attention of the current commander in chief.

Now O'Rourke must prove whether the energy he brought to the Texas campaign will resonate on a much larger stage.

O'Rourke said that he plans to travel the country and "listen to those who I seek to serve, to understand from your perspective how we can best meet these challenges".

"We saw the power of this in Texas, where people allowed no difference, however great or however small, to stand between them and divide us", O'Rourke said. At the end of the month, on March 30, O'Rourke plans to return to El Paso to kick off his campaign. What the central policy tenets of his campaign are remain to be seen.

For some users, there were also issues when attaching or accessing attachments, as well as accessing and saving draft emails. Many users across the globe are reporting issues while using Gmail , YouTube , Google Drive and other Google services.

O'Rourke's entry would see him join a primary field of more than a dozen Democratic candidates, many of whom are women or people of color.

But that doesn't mean Gingrich thinks she'll win against President Donald Trump, and it didn't stop him from getting a dig in at her politics, which include ending private insurance. While O'Rourke lost his Senate bid, the race vaulted him into the national spotlight. Beyonce, a Houston native, endorsed O'Rourke.

O'Rourke had mulled a presidential run for months and took an unusual break for what appeared to be some soul-searching after his loss, taking a road trip to New Mexico, Kansas and elsewhere.

O'Rourke's 2018 Senate campaign didn't fit the usual mold. Cory Booker (N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

As noted by The Daily Wire on Thursday morning, rumors that O'Rourke will team with former Vice President Joe Biden for a prime Democrat 2020 ticket have circulated for some time.

In New Hampshire, home to the nation's first primary, an O'Rourke adviser asked specifically for guidance on how they might schedule a driving tour through the state should he arrive coming from the West.

Trump, for his part, took note of O'Rourke's energetic gesticulation, on display as several cable TV networks aired O'Rourke's comments.
