Beto O'Rourke announces that he is running for president in 2020

Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020

"I thought you were supposed to win before you run for president", Trump told reporters in December.

He calls the 2020 presidential election "the fight of our lives as Americans, and as humans, I'd argue" in the article, adding that he wants "to do everything I humanly can for this country at this moment".

Beto O'Rourke tipped his hand in a number of ways Wednesday, then finally confirmed he's running for President to a hometown TV station. "I think I'd be good at it".

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. "It's a big part of why I'm running", O'Rourke told KTSM in a text message. "This city is the best example of this country at its best".

But unlike Trump, O'Rourke can appear nearly too innocent to be a politician-too decent, too wholesome, the very reason he became popular also the same reason he could be crucified on the national stage.

If he actually runs, O'Rourke will likely face a crowded Democratic primary field.

Several reports said that O'Rourke's volunteers from his Senate run had been contacted and urged to be ready to get back to work.

However, his former rival Hilary Clinton has said she would not run again.
