El Paso's Beto O'Rourke is reportedly going to enter the 2020 presidential race. Yesterday, KTSM in El Paso reported that the former U.S. Congressman confirmed to the news outlet that he's going seek the Democrat Party's nomination with a formal announcement to supporters planned for sometime today. Recent polls show O'Rourke is still popular with Democrats months after losing a close U.S. Senate race to Ted Cruz. In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Beto said "I'm born to be in it" when referring to the race for the White House.
