The former congressman is expected to make his candidacy official sometime Thursday.
O’Rourke will join an already crowded field of Democrats. Likely, he’ll climb to the top of the field, complicating things for Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and the media.
Who will the media support? Harris has become the media’s darling and Beto will force the media to choose which one they will support.
O’Rourke, despite the media’s help, lost to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last year.
