Watch Video of Beto O’Rourke Announcing 2020 Presidential Run
Sitting in the living room in his Sunset Heights home with his wife Amy by his side, Beto O’Rourke declared his intention to seek the highest office in the land.
"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," O'Rourke says in the video announcement.
He then proceeds to outline the platform he will run on, which includes healthcare reform, a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and illegal immigrants, and climate change.
The three-and-a-half minute video ends with O'Rourke saying he will travel the country over the next few days listening "to those who I seek to serve to understand...how to best meet these challenges" before returning to El Paso on March 30 to officially kickoff his campaign.
