Candidatos presidenciais Democratas para 2020
March 14, 2019 -- O antigo congressista do Texs, Beto O’Rourke, anunciou formalmente que vai tentar a nomeação presidencial Democrata em 2020, pondo fim a meses de especulação sobre se iria ampliar o vasto campo Democrata que anseia por uma oportunidade de correr contra o Presidente Donald Trump.
O'Rourke, 46, gained a national following with his long-shot election battle against U.S. Senator Ted Cruz last year.
A fluent Spanish speaker, the Texan politician with Irish roots broke Senate fundraising records by amassing more than $80 million over the course of his 2018 campaign.
O'Rourke is the 15th Democrat to declare his bid for the White House.
He joins a growing roster of people vying for the Democratic nomination, including senators Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Senator from New Jersey Cory Booker.
