Beto O'Rourke heading to Iowa, fueling speculation about White House bid

Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke Headed to Iowa this Weekend Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke Headed to Iowa this Weekend

He says he's made a decision about seeking the presidency in 2020 and will make his plans known soon.

O'Rourke had already planned to visit the University of Northern Iowa on Saturday to campaign for a Democrat running in a special state Senate election.

"Supporting [Giddens] for state Senate is the way that we get Iowa - and by extension, this country - back on the right track", O'Rourke says in the video as he walks through an El Paso neighborhood wearing a "Northern Iowa" hat.

All signs indicate Beto O'Rourke will run for president in 2020.

Former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke is heading to the early presidential voting state of Iowa this weekend, fuelling speculation that the Democrat is poised to enter the White House race. "UNI, we're counting on you, and we look forward to seeing you soon". He did not respond to requests about whether O'Rourke was planning to run for president. O'Rourke will visit Waterloo on Saturday to kick off an "afternoon of canvassing, GOTV, and grassroots organizing" for Giddens, according to O'Rourke's team.

His unorthodox and ultimately unsuccessful Senate campaign, which shunned traditional strategists and instead relied on the candidate's organic appeal, broke fundraising records and earned O'Rourke a national profile that catapulted him into the presidential discussion.

O'Rourke, 46, rose to national prominence past year when he narrowly lost his bid to defeat Republican U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.

A Des Moines Register/CNN Iowa poll released this weekend found that O'Rourke has dropped six percentage points from the first Iowa poll that was released in December. O'Rourke's camp is being advised in Iowa by Norm Sterzenbach, a veteran Democratic strategist who recently ended a contract with the Iowa Democratic Party in order to prepare to join a presidential campaign, sources familiar with his plans said.

Rep. Beto O'Rourke speaks to constituents outside of a polling location at Nixon Elementary School in El Paso, Texas, Nov. 6, 2018.

"When they show up here, we know why".

He will also travel to eastern Iowa beginning Thursday with a meet-and-greet event in Burlington, Democratic sources in the state said.
