In a video announcing his decision while seated on a couch next to his wife, O’ Rourke said,

“Amy and I are happy to share with you that I am running to serve you as the next president of the United States of America.”

He explained that the crises in our economy, democracy and climate,

“will either consume us or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America.” The 46-year-old went through a list of his Democratic priorities, including health care, climate change, family separation and criminal justice reform. He said that he plans to travel the country and “listen to those who I seek to serve, to understand from your perspective how we can best meet these challenges.”

O’Rourke is heading to Iowa for several campaign events, including a stop at Northern Iowa University to stump for Eric Giddens, who is currently running for a special election for a state senate seat. At the end of the month, on Mar. 30, O’Rourke plans to return to El Paso to kick off his presidential campaign. 

The former Texas rep is now the 15th Democrat to enter the contest. Socialites, do you think he has. A good chance? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
