Beto O'Rourke is running for President in 2020

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - Beto O'Rourke is running for President of the United States.

The former El Paso Congressman will make the announcement on Thursday morning, but he confirmed via text to KTSM, KRON4's sister station, Wednesday afternoon that he is seeking the Democratic nomination. 

Speculation on whether he would run for president has been discussed since his Senate loss to Ted Cruz in November. An appearance with Oprah and February showdown in El Paso with President Donald Trump only added to the discussion.

The field of Democratic candidates already includes Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Julian Castro, among others. Former Vice President Joe Biden is also expected to announce his intentions soon.
