Beto Tells Oprah: I’m Thinking Of Running For President

The Daily Beast reports:

Oprah Winfrey almost got Beto O’Rourke to say it. During a taped interview for Winfrey’s SuperSoul Conversations, set to premiere Feb. 16, the Texas Democrat edged closer to becoming a 2020 presidential candidate.

“I have been thinking about running for president,” O’Rourke revealed to Winfrey. An eruption of applause at the PlayStation Theater followed. Ever the tactical interviewer, Winfrey pressed the Democratic star on that topic, asking what it will take for him to officially make a decision.

“For me, it will really be family,” O’Rourke said. He also moved up a timeline for his decision, telling Winfrey and the audience that his deadline would be “really soon, before the end of the month.”
