Beto O'Rourke Announces His Run For President In 2020

Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020

Trump has blasted the idea of an O'Rourke presidential try, calling him a "flake" and a "total lightweight" and joking, "I thought you were supposed to win before you run for president".

An El Paso news station says former Representative Beto O'Rourke is running for president.

Speculation about his announcement has been rampant since Vanity Fair posted an image of him on the cover of its April issue. "I think it's important to have people that are running from different parts of the country".

He already had planned a visit to Iowa this weekend.

O'Rourke is heading to Iowa for several campaign events, including a stop at Northern Iowa University to stump for Eric Giddens, who is running for a special election for a state senate seat.

O'Rourke outlined challenges facing the United States, from immigration to climate change, saying, "The foundational challenge to get all of this done, is to fix our democracy".

Three players share the 18-hole record at Bay Hill of 62 - Adam Scott (2014), Greg Norman (1984) and Andy Bean (1981). He was at 9-under 207, which spoke to the difficulty of a fast, fiery course that would have made Arnie proud.

He also said women are "extremely primitive" people who enjoy being told to "be quiet and kind of do what you're told". He said that "what gets women going is arguing with them" about politics, especially feminism.

Eagles expected to sign Malik Jackson
If ever there was confirmation that DeSean Jackson has no interest in playing for the Bucs, or new coach Bruce Arians, this is it. According to NFL Media , which cited an unidentified source, the deal is for $30 million over three years.

In February, O'Rourke gained widespread attention after headlining a massive rally in his hometown, El Paso, where he provide a counter argument to President Donald Trump's call for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

The former Texas congressman announced his White House run Thursday morning and stopped later in a coffeeshop in Keokuk (KEE'-uh-kuhk), Iowa. He passed just three bills while in Congress, and a lack of governing experience could hurt, but President Donald Trump's rise suggests that the US electorate might welcome an outspoken outsider.

He added: "I want to be in it". I think she is a very effective campaigner.

Of late, O'Rourke has tried to distance himself from some left-leaning candidates, such as Sanders and Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, whom Trump has derided as "socialists". O'Rourke accused Trump of stoking "false fear" about immigrants.

Since losing the White House in 2016, Democrats have grappled with how to best take on Trump in 2020. Before that bid, O'Rourke had served on the El Paso City Council for six years and had founded his own technology company. "It's probably not the most professional thing you've ever heard about this, but I just feel it".
