Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke Headed to Iowa this Weekend

The HSDA website says questions for O'Rourke must be "brief and unrelated to Beto as a potential 2020 candidate".

The former congressman also visited the state of Wisconsin last month, meeting with students at a technical college in Milwaukee and at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

"A "big announcement" from Beto O'Rourke is on the horizon" was first published by The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans - and engages with them - about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.

Some new freshman Democrats who hail from solidly liberal districts haven't shied away from the subject - Michigan Rep. There are a group of House Democrats who say they are ready to bring articles of impeachment against President Trump.


A spokesman says O'Rourke will visit the University of Northern Iowa on Saturday to campaign for Eric Giddens, the Democratic candidate running in a state Senate special election there.

Mirroring his unsuccessful campaign model, O'Rourke embarked on a solo road trip in January to meet voters, where he had been chronicling the trip on social media and raising some eyebrows with weird antics such as a Instagram live stream from his dental hygienist's chair. On Facebook, O'Rourke's page - which had not paid for any advertisement since his failed bid to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz during the 2018 midterm elections.

Aides to O'Rourke have continued to remain tight-lipped about the Democrat's future plans, but the upcoming travel is the clearest signal yet that a presidential candidacy is in the works.

In 2016, California voters passed a ballot measure to expedite executions and defeated a measure to end the death penalty. Levine's district includes San Quentin State Prison, which houses California's death row and execution chamber.


But O'Rourke is adding events, including a house party Saturday evening in Dubuque, a Democratic hub in northeast Iowa. "It's time Democratic voters in Iowa know who the real Beto O'Rourke is - an entitled, corrupt political climber", Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh wrote in a statement. Sterzenbach, Tewes and multiple advisers close to O'Rourke did not respond to requests for comment. Some Democratic operatives who have been working on a draft movement have been in contact with O'Rourke aides and are expected to be folded into the campaign.

O'Rourke said he has made a decision about seeking the presidency in 2020 and will make his plans known soon. "We are excited to share it with everyone soon".

Sterzenbach's departure sparked speculation that he might join O'Rourke's campaign.
