Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke revealed that he plans to run for President of the United States via a text message sent to a local TV station.
KTSM reported that O’Rourke is officially launching his presidential campaign on Thursday morning, and that he gave them the exclusive information via a text message exchange between the station’s journalists and the failed senate candidate.
The former El Paso Congressman will make the announcement on Thursday morning, but he confirmed via text to KTSM Wednesday afternoon that he is seeking the Democratic nomination.
“I’m really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents,” O’Rourke said in the text. “It’s a big part of why I’m running. This city is the best example of this country at its best.”
