WashPost: O'Rourke's Donor Roots Are GOP Businessmen

Beto O'Rourke Says Time to Make Pot Legal and 'Not Cool' in US

"I said, 'Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?' So I've never seen hand movement". For his part, Trump said he was ready for anyone.

Branham said while O'Rourke is a viable candidate, he said he thinks O'Rourke will face different challenges from the Senate race with so many well-known and well-funded Democratic competitors.

Robert "Beto" O'Rourke officially launched his presidential campaign website on Thursday and despite touting the slogan "Beto for America" on the English webpage, the Spanish page translates his slogan into "Beto for everyone". He promised to offer the kind of bipartisan, optimistic vision for the future that helped him almost upset Republican Sen. Cruz called on O'Rourke in November to clarify his stances and urged reporters to do the same; after endorsing O'Rourke, the Dallas Morning News echoed Cruz's calls for clarification.

O'Rourke told the Iowa crowd: "I could care less about your party persuasion, your religion, anything other than the fact that, right now, we are all Americans".

3 takeaways from Duke’s ACC Tournament win over UNC
UNC: The Tar Heels are headed to the NCAA Tournament, though it's unclear whether they've done enough to secure a No. 1 seed. It's also the same floor where Virginia lost a second-round game as a No. 2 seed to seventh-seeded Michigan State in 2015.

O'Rourke's long awaited entrance makes the Texas Democrat who lost his Senate race to Sen. The Democratic field is so diverse, the ticket will likely have a man and a woman.

O'Rourke has three days of campaign events in Iowa planned and has promised to travel the country listening to would-be voters.

Some of these same lawmakers campaigned for O'Rourke in his bid to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz. Since then, his blend of Kennedy-esque looks, easygoing charisma and bipartisan optimism has helped his national political star burn brighter.

Several of El Paso's richest business moguls donated to and raised money for O'Rourke's city council campaigns, drawn to his support for a plan to redevelop El Paso's poorer neighborhoods, the Post reported.
