Beto O'Rourke says he'd suspend capital punishment at federal level

Beto O'Rourke says he'd suspend capital punishment at federal level

Trump has blasted the idea of an O'Rourke presidential try, calling him a "flake" and a "total lightweight" and joking, "I thought you were supposed to win before you run for president".

Beto O'Rourke, the affable former congressman who rose to political stardom a year ago when he almost ousted a Republican senator in traditionally conservative Texas, reportedly said Wednesday he is running for president.

O'Rourke said he will hold a kick-off rally for his campaign on March 30 in El Paso, Texas. "I don't see how we're able to meet any of the fundamental challenges that we have as a country without, in part, harnessing the power of the market".

O'Rourke's record in Congress has drawn criticism from some on the left for being too moderate, but he spoke at length about combating climate change and supporting the Green New Deal on Thursday. Kamala Harris, a California Democrat who is also running for president.

O'Rourke was little-known outside his hometown of El Paso until he challenged Republican Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the politician known colloquially as "Beto" seems to have gotten under the president's skin - or at least gotten Trump's attention.

But Brad Bannon, a Democratic strategist, says O'Rourke could find a lane to the nomination because "many of the other Democratic candidates are very smart and earnest ... but they come across as policy wonks".

Since then, his blend of Kennedy-esque looks, easygoing charisma and bipartisan optimism has helped his national political star burn brighter.

"I'm just born to do this", he told the magazine.

His comments were carried live on several cable television networks, something other Democrats in the already crowded White House field haven't had.

Kilmeade was clearly upset - that Beto reads books, and that Vanity Fair mentioned it. "Especially in the fact that there are some really great candidates out there right now".

The three-term representative from El Paso released a video in the early hours of Thursday morning, where he began making the case for his leadership to the American people.
