Failed former Texas Democrat congressman Beto O’Rourke just made an announcement about a potential 2020 run.
O’Rourke has been coy about making any official declarations but sent out an email to his supporters teasing a “big announcement.”
According to the Hill, his campaign sent an email “inviting them to be the first to know about O’Rourke’s next move.” The email did not include an actual date for the announcement.
