Former U.S. congressman Beto O'Rourke on Thursday joined the crowded field for the Democratic Party's nomination to oppose President Donald Trump as he runs for re-election in 2020.
O'Rourke, who served three terms in the House of Representatives before losing a close contest for a Senate seat last year in Texas, released a video message pledging a positive campaign that embraces the opportunity of facing challenges at what he called a "moment of maximum peril and maximum potential."
"This is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us," O'Rourke said seated alongside his wife Amy.
Later, he visited Iowa, where the party's first presidential nominating contest will be held in February 2020, meeting with voters in a restaurant in the small city of Keokuk.
