O'Rourke, 46, is kicking off his campaign with a three-day trip through Eastern Iowa, where he will sell his vision of national unity to the country's first Democratic primary voters.

Alice Davis, a retired teacher from Burlington, said O'Rourke "seems to be kind of a centrist, which I think we need". Vela said he also donated $2,000 to Julian Castro when the former San Antonio mayor and U.S. Housing and Urban Development secretary under President Obama announced his candidacy.

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.

With his presidential effort, O'Rourke is hoping to leverage the fame he gained with his Senate race.

O'Rourke's long awaited entrance makes the Texas Democrat who lost his Senate race to Sen.


At a house party in Muscatine on Thursday night, O'Rourke spoke about institutionalized racism, the harm done to African-Americans after emancipation and the failures of the Civil Rights movement but did not come down on either side of the reparations debate. In particular, during Trump's border wall rally back in February, at the El Paso County Coliseum, adjacent to the venue was a baseball field where on the same night O'Rourke rallied with other local community leaders to strike down Trump's claims that the border wall plays a key role in the safety of the country.

"I'm a capitalist", O'Rourke told reporters last month.

"I think that John Cornyn is happy no one of Beto's status is going to run against him".

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

Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) entered the 2020 presidential race by making fun of the former congressman's hand gestures.
