Beto O'Rourke plans first Iowa visit amid 2020 speculation

O'Rourke will visit the University of Northern Iowa to campaign for Democrat Eric Giddens, who on Monday evening posted a Twitter video of O'Rourke announcing his Saturday visit.

"Supporting [Giddens] for state Senate is the way that we get Iowa - and by extension, this country - back on the right track", O'Rourke said while wearing a Northern Iowa hat in the video.

Chris Evans, a spokesman for O'Rourke, confirmed in an email to Reuters that O'Rourke will be in Waterloo, Iowa, campaigning for Giddens on Saturday afternoon. O'Rourke's team recently teased his upcoming "big announcement" in emails to supporters, and he has been building out a national campaign staff, CNN previously reported. "I'd like for you to be a part of it".

The trip to the Hawkeye State would be O'Rourke's first as a candidate - and spending time there is a necessity for anyone mounting a serious presidential run.

All signs since have pointed to moving forward with a campaign for president.

He said the proposed measure would apply "prospectively", not to Trump's current border emergency. That vote could well occur after Congress returns from a recess later this month.

Beto O'Rourke presses the flesh during a 2018 campaign stop in San Antonio. A Friday visit to Des Moines was considered initially, but isn't now in the works, as O'Rourke plans to devote all three days to introducing himself to voters in eastern Iowa.

"Beto O'Rourke has long sold Democrats a bill of goods, pretending to be a liberal superstar while exploiting his father-in-law's connections to climb the political ladder". O'Rourke's camp is being advised in Iowa by Norm Sterzenbach, a veteran Democratic strategist who recently ended a contract with the Iowa Democratic Party in order to prepare to join a presidential campaign, sources familiar with his plans said.

Beto O'Rourke has been actively hiring staffers in preparation for a likely 2020 presidential bid, according to a report published on Saturday.

O'Rourke has spoken to several Democratic advisers in recent weeks, some by telephone and others during visits to El Paso.

"We want to play as great a role as possible making sure that this country lives up to our expectations, to the promise, to the potential that we all know her to have", O'Rourke said.

He sat for an interview with Oprah Winfrey in NY and held a rival rally last month to decry Trump's immigration policy as the president promoted his planned border wall in El Paso.

The former congressman also visited the state of Wisconsin last month, meeting with students at a technical college in Milwaukee and at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

The Democrat has been highly critical of US President Donald Trump's immigration policies.
