Beto O'Rourke plans Iowa trip as 2020 announcement nears

Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke Headed to Iowa this Weekend Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke Headed to Iowa this Weekend

O'Rourke plans to headline a party at the house of Dubuque County Recorder John Murphy on Saturday evening. "It's the only way to ensure that you've done everything you possibly can for this country, when she needs you the most".

"A "big announcement" from Beto O'Rourke is on the horizon" was first published by The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans - and engages with them - about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.

The additional stops in Iowa, host of the first caucuses of the 2020 presidential nominating campaign, have the look of an early presidential visit.

The tweet by Giddens was accompanied by a video of O'Rourke speaking from his home city of El Paso, Texas, wearing a University of Northern Iowa baseball cap and urging UNI students to vote for Giddens. Wednesday, it turns out, is the final day for early campus voting.

He said he wanted to be sure "I tell everyone at the same time, adding that "I've got to be on the timeline that works for my family and for the country so that's the timeline we're on". Sterzenbach, Tewes and multiple advisers close to O'Rourke did not respond to requests for comment.

O'Rourke said two weeks ago that he had made a decision about a 2020 run and would share it with supporters soon.

The decision, Minister Marc Garneau said, was based on new satellite tracking data reviewed by Canadian aviation authorities. United Airlines, American Airlines and Southwest Airlines Co all fly versions of the 737 MAX. "There was no peace of mind".

Sterzenbach's departure sparked speculation that he might join O'Rourke's campaign.

His unorthodox and ultimately unsuccessful Senate campaign, which shunned traditional strategists and instead relied on the candidate's organic appeal, broke fundraising records and earned O'Rourke a national profile that catapulted him into the presidential discussion.

Former Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke will be in Cedar Falls this Saturday to campaign for Eric Giddens, the Democratic candidate for Iowa Senate District 30.

"There are so many candidacies, so many leaders, who we got to be a part of this fantastic thing in Texas over the last two years, and it continues, and we are so excited", he said.

It continued: "And now I'm ready for us to bring our movement to the rest of the country".
