Beto O'Rourke Covers 'Vanity Fair,' Announces Presidential Bid

Beto O'Rourke Covers 'Vanity Fair,' Announces Presidential Bid

Early opinion polls on the 2020 race have consistently ranked O'Rourke in the top tier of contenders, behind former Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet announced whether he is running, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. "Oh, I have no reaction", Sen. "Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?"

After the president attacked NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality, O'Rourke responded at a town hall that he "can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee, for your rights, any time, anywhere, in any place". Still, Parkhomenko noted, "The momentum we see around him is unique, and it's not something you see come out of nowhere, all of a sudden, like you've seen with him". It remains to be seen, though, whether O'Rourke's home-state appeal could truly make Texas competitive.

While speaking at a coffee shop in Keokuk, IA, 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O'Rourke voiced his support for the Green New Deal, echoing socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in saying the world will end in 12 years if nothing is done.

While running for Senate, he offered an unapologetically liberal vision, supporting Trump's impeachment, universal health care, gun control, marijuana decriminalization, steep federal subsidies for prekindergarten education and relaxed immigration policies.

Political strategists say the general election might not be the Democratic upstart's biggest challenge, however.

The first of the state-by-state nominating contests will be in February 2019. "Beto runs the risk of appearing shallow, but he projects leadership, which is what the presidency is all about", he noted.

The website opens with O'Rourke's campaign slogan, "Beto For America", and features three tabs: one to buy merchandise, one to apply for a job on the campaign and a third to donate money.

Grand Slam-chasing Gatland says Wales 'have a dream'
The more Wales tried to close out the game the more Scotland began to find gaps in the usually formidable Welsh defense. But Scotland tailed off badly in the second half and then looked hopelessly passive against France two weeks ago.

"First of all, you pronounced it incorrectly: It's Robert Francis", Gidley told a Fox anchor, using the former three-term congressman's given name.

His track record during six years in the US House of Representatives is thin. No one person can meet them on their own. "It's remarkable, his rise, and that he's now running for president".

O'Rourke heads to Iowa amid some signs his popularity there has waned in the past several weeks, as he has publicly deliberated about a run while more than a dozen Democrats leapt into the race.

"We are making a stand for truth against lies and hate and ignorance and intolerance", O'Rourke said.

"I love the line, I think in the "Vanity Fair" piece, he said 'I was born to do this, '" said Gingrich.

Beto O'Rourke had a lot to offer Democratic voters in Texas.
