Beto ORourke Drops out of 2020 Race After Campaign Fails to Build Momentum

Beto ORourke, the former Texas congressman, has dropped out of the 2020 presidential race, according to a series of tweets on Friday.

“Our campaign has always been about seeing clearly, speaking honestly, and acting decisively,” ORourke announced on Twitter. “In that spirit: I am announcing that my service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee.”

Over the past several months, ORourke, who had challenged Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for his seat last year, failed to build off the momentum from his Senate run.

“I am grateful to all the people who made up the heart and soul of this campaign. You were among the hundreds of thousands who made a donation, signed up to volunteer or spread the word about this campaign and our opportunity to help decide the election of our lifetime,” he said.

ORourke ran on a campaign that focused on issues including climate change and gun control. Following, the mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart earlier this year, he said that certain rifles will be taken away.
