Beto O 'Rourke, the former Democratic congressman from Texas who has become a national sensation in his losing bid against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in 2018, seems closer to getting into the primary Democratic presidential election of 2020, which is overpopulated. "Amy and I have decided on the best way to serve our country," said O & # Rourke in a statement to the Daily Beast, referring to himself and his wife. "We are excited to share it with everyone soon." The Dallas Morning News First reported the statement and said, according to sources, that O 'Rourke would not dispute Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) for the Senate in 2020. The Daily Beast did not confirm this independently. Earlier this month, O 'Rourke, who had raised a record $ 80 million in his campaign against Cruz, told Oprah Winfrey that he "thought getting elected to the presidency" and that a decision would be made by the end of the month.
