The challenges we face are the greatest in living memory.

"This moment of peril produces, perhaps, the greatest moment of promise for this country", he said in the video which was posted on the El Paso Times website.

With his presidential effort, O'Rourke is hoping to leverage the fame he gained with his Senate race. By signaling that he was even open to throwing his hat in the ring for 2020, however, O'Rourke continued to generate buzz and speculation in the sprawling field of prospective Democratic candidates for 2020.

Of late, O'Rourke has tried to distance himself from some left-leaning candidates, such as Sanders and Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, whom Trump has derided as "socialists".

Hours after formally announcing his bid for the presidency in 2020, Democrat Beto O'Rourke showed up at a coffee house in Keokuk, Iowa, to give an impromptu question-and-answer session.

The death penalty is an archaic and unjust system, disproportionately condemning people of color and those with disabilities. There hasn't been an execution in California since 2006, amid a years-long legal battle over the state's drug cocktail.

The nominating process will test whether O'Rourke can translate that kind of support and star power to a different kind of campaign, one in which he'll be competing against other popular Democrats, not an opponent like Republican Sen.

He said that "the most pressing, the most urgent, the most existential challenge of them all is climate".

Now O'Rourke must prove whether the energy he brought to the Texas campaign will resonate on a much larger stage. Beto knows this, but it's not enough to keep him from running. "Making sure that everybody can see a doctor and live to their full potential". He said he will be traveling the country over the coming days for a listening tour.

While challenging Cruz, O'Rourke insisted that he had no interest in running for president.

Democratic operatives in states with early presidential primaries, including SC and Nevada, formed Draft Beto groups that spent months fundraising and building campaign infrastructure until their candidate was ready.

Beto O'Rourke is running for President of the United States. He acknowledged at a town hall shortly after the election that he was weighing a presidential bid.

On "Fox & Friends" Thursday, Gingrich, a Fox News contributor and former House Speaker, predicted that O'Rourke's destiny is to "keep losing".

Afterward, Obama praised the Texan for his Senate run, calling him an "impressive young man who ran a terrific race".

"I love the line, I think in the "Vanity Fair" piece, he said 'I was born to do this, '" said Gingrich. And that, you'd like to think, is normally how things work.

O'Rourke refused donations from outside political groups and shunned pollsters during his Senate campaign. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us.
