Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020

AUSTIN TEXAS- MARCH 09 Beto O'Rourke attends the

O'Rourke posted a video to social media on Thursday morning to officially announce his 2020 presidential bid, which has been rumored for some time despite the Democrat's past insistence that he would definitely not make a run for the White House. "In other words, this moment of peril produces, perhaps, the greatest moment of promise for this country and everyone inside of it".

O'Rourke vowed in an announcement video released Thursday morning to run a "positive campaign that seeks to bring out the very best from every single one of us, that seeks to unite a very divided country". "We saw the power of this in Texas".

Speculation about his plans had already increased on Wednesday when Vanity Fair unveiled its April cover featuring O'Rourke with photos taken by famous photographer Annie Leibovitz in his home town of El Paso.

They include several U.S. senators: Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar, and the leader among the current candidates, liberal powerhouse Bernie Sanders.

O'Rourke's announcement comes five months after his senate race against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz.

Seated next to his wife, O'Rourke said, "Amy and I are happy to share with you that I'm running to serve you as the next president of the United States of America".

Brexit: British PM Theresa May faces another defeat after deadlock
The prime minister has now secured some guarantees on the hated backstop arrangement, meant to keep open the Irish border. The EU has said it is now up to MPs to decide the next steps for Brexit and it remains "committed" to agreeing a deal.

The bid comes three and a half months after a narrow loss for Senate in Texas, a campaign that catapulted the 46-year-old, three-term lawmaker from El Paso to national prominence.

O'Rourke past year lost that race in Texas, a bid to oust Republican Sen.

O'Rourke joins an ever-growing field of Democrat presidential candidates, which includes Sens.

While challenging Cruz, O'Rourke insisted that he had no interest in running for president, vowing to quietly return to El Paso should he lose. But he harnessed growing nationwide popularity to rake in $80-plus million in donations, including a staggering $38 million from July to September 2018 alone. Though he lost by three points, O'Rourke's grassroots, retail politics campaigning and impassioned speeches fueled his meteoric rise and marked a serious challenge for the Republican incumbent in a state that hasn't seen a Democrat win statewide elected office since 1994.

"What I liked most about his race was that it didn't feel constantly poll-tested", Obama said during a podcast taping with his former top strategist David Axelrod. I think she is a very effective campaigner.

"So if I were to run, I think it's just so important that those who would comprise my team looked like this country".
