Beto to Make First Trip to Iowa

Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke Headed to Iowa this Weekend

Former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke Headed to Iowa this Weekend

The moves suggest O'Rourke is ramping up for a presidential bid, including his first trip to Iowa as a candidate or prospective candidate.

O'Rourke is in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, this week ahead of his Iowa trip.

The former congressman also visited the state of Wisconsin last month, meeting with students at a technical college in Milwaukee and at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

Beto O'Rourke is ready to "push the button" to launch his presidential campaign, with the announcement expected to first come on social media, a source familiar with his plans told CNN.

"Supporting him for state Senate is the way that we get Iowa, and by extension, this country, back on the right track", O'Rourke says. Cory Booker of New Jersey, a declared candidate, is also visiting SD-30 this weekend.

O'Rourke is not the only 2020 contender slated to drum up enthusiasm for Giddens, who is running against former GOP state Rep. Walt Rogers.

Verizon's 5G network to launch April 11 in two United States cities
Today, Verizon is starting to pull back the veil on its 5G Mobility plans a little bit, announcing launch dates for two cities. The offer is available only on unlimited plans, which now start at $75 for one person or $160 for a family of four without 5G.

A Democratic presidential hopeful and another candidate believed to be leaning toward entering the race will visit Dubuque this weekend.

Aware that the 2020 Democratic primary is quickly taking shape, O'Rourke is set to announce his candidacy this week, rather than launching an exploratory committee.

Sterzenbach, who until recently was a contractor advising the Iowa Democratic Party on the caucuses, has reportedly joined O'Rourke's team and will advise the Texas Democrat in the early nominating state, according to Politico. Sterzenbach, Tewes and multiple advisers close to O'Rourke did not respond to requests for comment.

Beto O'Rourke is heading to Iowa this weekend amid speculation that the Texas Democrat is preparing to throw his hat into the ring for president in 2020. "It's the exact kind of campaign that America needs right now, and it's why so many of us are hoping that Beto has chose to launch a campaign for President of the United States". "We just want to continue to be a part of it".

O'Rourke's name was thrown in the ring as a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate after his closer-than-expected loss a year ago to U.S. Sen.
