Democrat Beto O'Rourke Jumps Into 2020 US Presidential Race

"I said, 'Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?'" "It's a big part of why I'm running".

His statement continued: "Beto O'Rourke failed to get anything done in Congress, and with extreme policies like government-run health care and tearing down border barriers, his 2020 bid won't be successful either".

President Donald Trump offered his first reaction to Beto O'Rourke's 2020 presidential campaign by invoking O'Rourke's hand gestures and, apparently, questioning his mental condition. He visited with students in the key swing state of Wisconsin.

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.

The former Texas congressman pushed back on Trump's inaccurate claims that a drop in crime was due to the barriers in El Paso, telling supporters, "We know that walls do not save lives - walls end lives". Both events in the Texas city that borders Mexico drew thousands and put the two men's divergent positions on the border wall on sharp display.

O'Rourke said he will hold a kick-off rally for his campaign on March 30 in El Paso, Texas.

Still missing from Democrats' path to success in Texas in 2020, lawmakers say, is a credible candidate to take on Republican Sen.

O'Rourke, 47, served three terms in Congress representing a region of West Texas along the USA border with Mexico.

His Senate bid generated a torrent of media attention and excited voters in a party desperate for fresh political faces.

O'Rourke revealed during the interview for the April issue that he wanted to run for president, adding that he is "just born to be in it".

"Whereas Obama is from the tail end of the baby boom, Beto O'Rourke is quintessentially Generation X, weaned on Star Wars and punk rock and priding himself on authenticity over showmanship and a healthy skepticism of the mainstream".

In 2012, he won against incumbent Democratic congressmanSilvestre Reyes in a Latino-majority district, and was re-elected twice before giving up his seat to run against Cruz.
