Possible O'Rourke White House bid spurs action to mobilize students

Firstpost Thursday, 21 February 2019
By Tim Reid (Reuters) - A Democratic group seeking to persuade former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke to run for president will launch mobilization efforts on college campuses nationwide to coincide with what they believe will be his entry into the race by month's end. The Draft Beto campaign, founded in December by former staffers to O'Rourke and to former President Barack Obama, is organising "Students for Beto" chapters on roughly 100 campuses in about 30 primary and general election states, said Nate Lerner, a Democratic strategist and co-founder of DraftBeto.org.
