O’Rourke ends first day of 2020 presidential campaign

Just in case you missed it, Beto O’Rourke is running for president.
He officially announced his campaign early Thursday morning, posting a video on Twitter.

His 2020 race starting with voters in Iowa where he’s set to crisscross the first-caucus state through Saturday.
With seven scheduled stops and more in between he plans to speak with potential supporters about his main issues.

Immigration and criminal justice reform notes went out in early campaign emails since the beginning of March and tthey are now joined by climate change and veterans’ issues on the campaign trail.

“We can reassert our global leadership and end these decades-long wars, and be there for every woman and man who’ve served in them,” O’Rourke said in his announcement video.

The exact details of his platform are not public yet.
Trying to reach his website’s issues page shows it’s still under construction and so is his team.

Many senior staffers were brought over from his Senate campaign. To go nationwide the campaign and outside supporters are looking for political talent in early primary states like New Hampshire and Nevada where candidates normally visit early on.

Day one of his 2020 race is over and it’s a long campaign road through the primaries to the general election.

“Any single Democrat running today and I may not be able to enumerate every single one of them right now would be far better than the current occupant of the White House,” O’Roiurke said in Iowa.
