Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) announced that he is contemplating running for president in 2020 during an interview with Oprah Winfrey in New York City on Tuesday.

“Going forward, all I know after that trip and after thinking and talking to my wife, Amy, who’s here with me, is we want to play as great a role as possible in making sure that this country lives up to our expectations, to the promise, to the potential that we all know,” O’Rourke said while discussing his recent road trip across America.

Oprah asked O’Rourke if he was still trying to figure out what to do next.

“I have been thinking about running for president,” O’Rourke declared.

The studio audience in attendance broke out in applause. The video was obtained by NTK Network from the Beto Mural – East Austin Facebook page.

“I’m so excited at the prospect of being able to play that role,” O’Rourke later added once the crowd quieted down.
