Beto O’Rourke has made the decision that he will not run for U.S Senate against John Cornyn, Texas Republican incumbent, and will most likely announce a presidential campaign soon. While O’Rourke has not announced anything yet, people close to him expect him to announce his plans in the next few weeks.
Besides deciding to not run for Senate another tell that O’Rourke is planning on a presidential campaign is the getting rid of “for Texas” with his online presence. His website has change from Betofortexas.com to BetoORourke.com which indicates that he wants to reach more people than just Texans.
While anticipation is building on when O’Rourke will make the announcement, nothing is official. He has discussed the possibility with his family but as of Thursday, he has not confirmed whether he will be running for President with them. We will have to wait until he makes his announcement in the coming weeks to know for sure.
