Supporters eager for O’Rourke announcement on 2020 run

Politics

Beto O’Rourke supporters are on edge waiting for the former El Paso Congressman to announce whether or not he will be running for president.

O’Rourke said he’d make a decision by the end of the month, which he has. Now it’s a waiting game to find out what that decision is.

A website called “Draft Beto 2020″ is asking supporters to get involved in different ways and be ready to campaign if O’Rourke announces a presidential bid even creating a “Beto Alert” with emails and texts.

The Dallas Morning News reporting that O’Rourke decided not to challenge Texas Senator John Cornyn likely paving the way for a presidential run.

If O’Rourke announces a run for presidency, he’ll join at least a dozen other democrats who are officially in the race for president.
