O’Rourke says will decide on 2020 run this month

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER TEXAS CONGRESSMAN BETO O'ROURKE, SAYING: "If I can play some role in helping the country do that - by God I'm going to do it." (SOUNDBITE) (English) OPRAH WINFREY SAYING: "By God, when are you going to know the answer?!" Beto 2020?

Maybe.

In an interview with Oprah in New York City, the Texas Democrat said he's considering running for president and that a decision on that isn't far off.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) OPRAH WINFREY SAYING: "Have you given yourself a deadline?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER TEXAS CONGRESSMAN BETO O'ROURKE, SAYING: "The serious answer is really soon.

Before the end of this month." New Yorkers lined up outside the PlayStation Theater in Time Square to see the former congressman, who became a POLITICAL phenomenon last year ... after nearly defeating Republican Ted Cruz in a closer-than-expected Senate race in deep-red Texas.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER TEXAS CONGRESSMAN BETO O'ROURKE, SAYING: "There was something new and maybe even dangerous about the way we ran that campaign." In the Tuesday interview, O'Rourke also slammed President Donald Trump's push for a border wall, saying it was a 'racist response to a problem we don't have.

His hometown of El Paso sits on the U.S. Mexico border.
