Warren Joins Harris in Fundraising Off O’Rourke’s Candidacy Announcement

Beto O'Rourke Says Time to Make Pot Legal and 'Not Cool' in US

Beto O'Rourke cheers as he listens to Bobby Pulido sing "desvelado" during a campiagn stop at HEB Park in Edinburg Tuesday, May 01,2018.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar welcomed Beto O'Rourke to the 2020 presidential race on Thursday, telling CNN's Poppy Harlow in an interview that she believes more competition in the Democratic primary is good for the party and that she isn't anxious about the former congressman's fundraising prowess. "I think there's going to be people that. have their own money".

"I think it's significant that we have someone from the border running for president", Vela said.

And as a congressman, O'Rourke supported a $2 billion military funding increase that benefited a company controlled by another major donor- real estate developer Woody Hunt, who also co-founded and funds an El Paso nonprofit organization that has employed O'Rourke's wife since 2016. the news outlet reported.

Mirroring his unsuccessful campaign model, O'Rourke embarked on a solo road trip in January to meet voters, where he had been chronicling the trip on social media and raising some eyebrows with freaky antics such as a Instagram live stream from his dental hygienist's chair.

Castro, within an hour of O'Rourke's video announcement, released a list of 30 mostly Hispanic Texas Democratic endorsements, including many Rio Grande Valley lawmakers.

His candidacy drew praise from the Texas Democratic Party, which tweeted about his close, but unsuccessful, bid to unseat Sen.Ted Cruz during last year's midterm election.

"We shared a common goal", said Ted Houghton, a local financial adviser and longtime O'Rourke donor who raised money for former GOP Texas Gov. Rick Perry, and helped steer millions in state transportation funding to the city. "He asked about: What will this do to my family? Do I see something that I uniquely can provide, for what the country needs right now?"
