Democrat Beto O'Rourke has announced he is running for United States president, joining a crowded field of candidates vying to challenge Donald Trump in 2020.

The first of the state-by-state nominating contests will be in February 2019.

The trip will serve as the first test of whether O'Rourke can carry to the national political stage the pop-star appeal he showed in Texas previous year, drawing enthusiastic crowds and $80 million in campaign donations.

O'Rourke heads to Iowa amid some signs his popularity there has waned in the past several weeks, as he has publicly deliberated about a run while more than a dozen Democrats leapt into the race.

O'Rourke revealed during the interview for the April issue that he wanted to run for president, adding that he is "just born to be in it". "It's a big part of why I'm running". And because Trump is known for his Twitter typos, and V and B are right next to each other on a keyboard, it took people a second to realize he was actually announcing his intention to veto the Senate's vote rejecting Trump's declaration of a National Emergency over immigration at the southwestern border. "It's the only way I know to meet that challenge", O'Rourke told the magazine.

In 2012, he won against incumbent Democratic congressmanSilvestre Reyes in a Latino-majority district, and was re-elected twice before giving up his seat to run against Cruz.

The 46-year-old Democrat confirmed to local station KTSM that he is seeking his party's nomination for the 2020 presidential race, and will make the announcement Thursday morning, the television broadcaster in O'Rourke's home town of El Paso reported.
