Beto O’Rourke Confirms He’s Running for President in 2020
Beto O’Rourke is joining a slew of other Democratic hopefuls vying to be the next President of the United States.
The Texas Democrat, who lost a high-profile Senate race to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz in November, announced his bid for president this week.
“This is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us,” he said in a video announcing his candidacy. “The challenges that we face right now, the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate have never been greater.”
“They will either consume us, or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America,” he continued, sitting alongside his wife Amy Hoover Sanders.
