Democrats Rank Beto O’Rourke Among Their Top 2020 Presidential Picks–Will He Run?

Is Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) the future of the Democratic Party? Rising quickly from relatively no national name recognition, O’Rourke has garnered a viral online following. A recent “2020 Presidential Pulse Poll” by the progressive group Democracy for America (DFA) showed Bernie Sanders winning with 36 percent, Joe Biden second with 15 percent and O’Rourke with 12 percent. Elizabeth Warren, who officially declared her candidacy yesterday, won 8 percent of the DFA vote. Other media polling shows similar rankings among top Democrats.

Nate Lerner, co-founder of Draft Beto, and Lt. Steve Rogers, Trump 2020 Advisory Board member, discussed the 2020 presidential race on Bold TV, including what O’Rourke’s strategy could be if he chooses to enter the race.

Lerner worked on former President Obama’s 2012 election campaign and currently serves as executive director of Build The Wave, a progressive grassroots organization that sent 2 million texts to voters in 2018.

“[O’Rourke] is really good at communicating the issues that matter to people in a way that that’s not talking down to them but still gets them to care about it, understand it,” Lerner told Bold TV about O’Rourke’s rising popularity after O’Rourke’s close loss in a U.S. Senate race against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

A rising media star, O’Rourke during his Senate race was forced to respond to accusations from a 1998 police report where a witness said that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of his DWI accident. In the age of #MeToo, O’Rourke during his campaign was also forced to apologize for misogynistic comments he made against women.

Draft Beto seeks to raise $1 million for O’Rourke’s possible presidential bid and build grassroots support to encourage O’Rourke to enter the race. Various news reports indicate that O’Rourke met with Obama as the congressman mulls his 2020 decision.
