Four months after narrowly losing a bid for U.S. Senate, Beto O'Rourke on Thursday morning announced in a video that he is running for president.

"Middle schools are one of the fastest-growing markets for marijuana sales today", O'Rourke said Thursday at a campaign event in Iowa.

"Well, I think he's got a lot of hand movement".

"I think the voters will decide", said Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, have also spoken of the need for the USA government to reckon with and make up for centuries of stolen labor and legal oppression. This is just one recent example in O'Rourke's career of neglecting taxpayers. Included on the Castro endorsement list were state Sens. Armando Martinez, D-Weslaco, Eddie Lucio III, D-Brownsville, Ryan Guillen, D-Rio Grande City, Sergio Munoz Jr., D-Palmview, Terry Canales, D-Edinburg; and Hidalgo County District Attorney Ricardo Rodriguez.

O'Rourke almost upset Sen. If she chooses not to run or loses in the Senate or Democratic primary elections, AP reported Abrams could also be considered as a vice presidential running mate.

Newspaper: British lawmakers back Brexit delay
May is expected to again submit the withdrawal deal to lawmakers next week, though it has already been rejected twice. Unless an agreement is made, Britain is still at legal default to depart from the bloc on March 29.

While he narrowly lost his U.S. Senate race to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz previous year, O'Rourke managed to build a nationwide following with his unconventional, optimistic style combined with a populist message that brought in nearly US$80 million in primarily small donations. National Democrats were attracted to O'Rourke's record-breaking $80 million raised during his campaign, compared to Cruz's $37 million, also a record.

"I am running to serve you as the next president", O'Rourke wrote in a tweet on Thursday, adding that the challenges faced by the U.S. "are the greatest in living memory".

Robert "Beto" O'Rourke officially launched his presidential campaign website on Thursday and despite touting the slogan "Beto for America" on the English webpage, the Spanish page translates his slogan into "Beto for everyone". Is this the right thing for the country?

According to a Breitbart story posted on February 12, 2019, O'Rourke claims the "Green New Deal" was the "best proposal that I've seen" - ignoring its $93 trillion price tag.
