Many Texas Democrats hoped O'Rourke would sit out the presidential race and run against Sen.

However, O'Rourke didn't expand on the issue in his response to Trump's critique.

Texas state Rep. Beto O'Rourke officially announced his bid for 2020 Democratic nomination for president on Thursday, and his campaign is already going viral thanks to his plan to get rural Americans on Tinder.

"Well, I think he's got a lot of hand movement".

And as a congressman, O'Rourke supported a $2 billion military funding increase that benefited a company controlled by another major donor- real estate developer Woody Hunt, who also co-founded and funds an El Paso nonprofit organization that has employed O'Rourke's wife since 2016. the news outlet reported. Vela said he also donated $2,000 to Julian Castro when the former San Antonio mayor and U.S. Housing and Urban Development secretary under President Obama announced his candidacy.

Some of these same lawmakers campaigned for O'Rourke in his bid to unseat Republican U.S. Sen.

Robert is O'Rourke's legal first name.

O'Rourke, the former Texas congressman who excited progressives with his close Senate loss to Republican Ted Cruz a year ago, became the latest entrant in the expanding 2020 group of Democratic primary candidates.

Klobuchar said she does not believe O'Rourke tightens her lane - "I don't think there's lanes yet" - and dodged a question about his ability to raise money after he raised and spent $80 million in his Texas Senate race. "And, of course, he's someone that comes, like I do, from the center of the country. There are people in that are going to have resources from past elections and in terms of having lists and things because he was running against Ted Cruz, and I just view it as you run your own race, you appeal to people".
