Beto O'Rourke plans first Iowa visit amid 2020 speculation

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

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 him for state Senate is the way that we get Iowa, and by extension, this country, back on the right track", O'Rourke says. "UNI, we're counting on you, and we look forward to seeing you soon".

Chris Evans, a spokesman for O'Rourke, confirmed in an email to Reuters that O'Rourke will be in Waterloo, Iowa, campaigning for Giddens on Saturday afternoon.

"That's why Beto's running for president - because he can". "I'd like for you to be a part of it". Ted Cruz in the 2018 U.S. Senate race in Texas. "It's the exact kind of campaign that America needs right now, and it's why so many of us are hoping that Beto has chose to launch a campaign for President of the United States".

But in the aftermath of his loss the prospect of a presidential bid remained unclear, and O'Rourke was panned by some for his decision to embark on a solo road trip where he chronicled his interactions with everyday Americans as he mulled his next political move.

While he has not formally announced his bid for the presidency, O'Rourke has been polling as a top three contender for the Democratic nomination.

With its position as first in the nation status when it comes to presidential nominating battles, Iowa can sometimes make or break candidacies and is an early and frequent destination for White House hopefuls.

"A "big announcement" from Beto O'Rourke is on the horizon" was first published by The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans - and engages with them - about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.

"Beto O'Rourke has long sold Democrats a bill of goods, pretending to be a liberal superstar while exploiting his father-in-law's connections to climb the political ladder". 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.

He says he's decided on 2020 but has provided no further details except that he'll make his plans known soon.

"When they show up here, we know why". He has also visited the general election battleground state of Wisconsin.
