Former Texas US Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-El Paso) said yesterday he would likely make a decision about running for President or against Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) by the end of this month, though he said that date is not firm.
Most of his focus has been on running nationally but acknowledging that the Texas race is on the table suggests movement toward a Senate challenge. Though either decision will generate a great deal of political attention, he realistically would be considered an underdog for both President and the Senate in spite of the considerable media hype that typically surrounds him.
