Beto O'Rourke just announced he's running for president in 2020. O'Rourke shot to fame after he narrowly lost his Texas Senate bid to incumbent Ted Cruz last year. The El Paso native represented Texas' 16th district in the House for six years. His announcement comes after months of his supporters urging him to run for the highest office.
