Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke is not in favor of traditional reparations for African-Americans for the legacy of slavery but says it is important to confront the truth about how black people have been treated in the U.S.

According to The Washington Post, Beto O'Rourke's popularity has grown after he challenged Senator Ted Cruz past year.

And as a congressman, O'Rourke supported a $2 billion military funding increase that benefited a company controlled by another major donor- real estate developer Woody Hunt, who also co-founded and funds an El Paso nonprofit organization that has employed O'Rourke's wife since 2016. the news outlet reported.

Moreover, he became a sensation during a campaign during a grassroots campaign where social media was utilized to reach out to the younger generation of voters as well as the minorities.

Reid, however, believes Ireland need to continue scouring the country for players who might be eligible to play for them. On Rice call-up: "We've tracked him for quite a while".

O'Rourke, the former Texas congressman who excited progressives with his close Senate loss to Republican Ted Cruz a year ago, became the latest entrant in the expanding 2020 group of Democratic primary candidates. Now the former rocker must prove that he can also conquer a much bigger field as he did in Texas.

Branham said while O'Rourke is a viable candidate, he said he thinks O'Rourke will face different challenges from the Senate race with so many well-known and well-funded Democratic competitors. "I think there's going to be people that. have their own money. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us".

After Cruz defeated O'Rourke, the former congressman revealed that he was mulling over running for president in 2020, despite repeatedly claiming that it was a "definitive no" regarding whether he would run or not.

Robert "Beto" O'Rourke officially launched his presidential campaign website on Thursday and despite touting the slogan "Beto for America" on the English webpage, the Spanish page translates his slogan into "Beto for everyone". He joins Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and more in the race to the White House.
