Beto O'Rourke in Talks With Prominent Black Democrats As He Eyes Possible 2020 Run
Talks of a possible 2020 presidential bid continue to surround Beto O’Rourke who has recently had talks with prominent African American Democrats.????The Texas Congressman who lost a senate race to Ted Cruz has only gone as far as saying he’s open to a 2020 run.????Andrew Gillum, who lost in this year’s Florida gubernatorial election reached out to O’Rourke by phone according to NBC News.????NBC reports the two Democrats expressed their desires to find someone who is “young and unapologetically progressive” to lead the party.????Additionally BuzzFeed News reports that O’Rourke also spoke with the Reverend Al Sharpton and that they agreed to meet in the coming weeks.????After meeting with Barack Obama, the former president praised Beto’s Senate campaign that ultimately fell short, telling the Washington Post “What I like about his race was that it didn’t feel constantly poll-tested.
It felt as if he based his statements and his positions on what he believed.
And that, you’d like to think, is normally how things work.
