Beto O’Rourke to Announce 2020 Presidential Bid”

And I think that's a very legitimate basis upon which to make a decision.

Beto O' Rourke has announced that he is running for president in 2020.

"I want to be in it", the former Texas congressman told the magazine.

O'Rourke, an El Paso-area lawmaker who put a scare into incumbent GOP Sen.

He calls the 2020 presidential election "the fight of our lives as Americans, and as humans, I'd argue" in the article, adding that he wants "to do everything I humanly can for this country at this moment". "If I were to run, if I were to win, that my administration looks like this country".

O'Rourke is planning a series of stops in Iowa beginning Thursday, The Associated Press reported.

In 2018 speculation began that Mr O'Rourke may decide to run after his campaign for the US Senate proved his worth.

Trump has already confirmed he would stand again. Kamala Harris of California, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Corey Booker of New Jersey, among others.

A former Hillary Clinton aide told the Times: "If a woman was presented with a similar choice: Do that less ambitious but better for the party thing, versus more ambitious but longer shot thing, I don't see people being super understanding when she takes the latter".

The pair were involved in a bitter dispute during the last election, with Trump eventually winning the race.
