A ‘big announcement’ from Beto O’Rourke is on the horizon

A ‘big announcement’ from Beto O’Rourke is on the horizon

Other presidential hopefuls who can not make it to Iowa this weekend, including Sens.

A spokesman says O'Rourke will visit the University of Northern Iowa on Saturday to campaign for Eric Giddens, the Democratic candidate running in a state Senate special election there.

Texas is an early primary state for Democrats, but is a red state in the presidential election as a whole - although O'Rourke's close race with Cruz suggests that the state could be shifting slowly toward being a purple state. The former Texas congressman is expected to visit the Hawkeye State on Saturday to participate in a get-out-the-vote event.

But in the aftermath of his loss the prospect of a presidential bid remained unclear, and O'Rourke was panned by some for his decision to embark on a solo road trip where he chronicled his interactions with everyday Americans as he mulled his next political move.

A Des Moines Register/CNN Iowa poll released this weekend found that O'Rourke has dropped six percentage points from the first Iowa poll that was released in December.

Rep. Beto O'Rourke speaks to constituents outside of a polling location at Nixon Elementary School in El Paso, Texas, Nov. 6, 2018.

In February, Giddens was selected by Black Hawk County Democrats to be their candidate for Iowa Senate District 30.

"There are so many candidacies, so many leaders, who we got to be a part of this awesome thing in Texas over the last two years, and it continues, and we are so excited", he said.

"It's time Democratic voters in Iowa know who the real Beto O'Rourke is - an entitled, corrupt political climber", Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh wrote in a statement. Bernie Sanders are visiting Iowa. "UNI, we're counting on you, and we look forward to seeing you soon". O'Rourke's camp is being advised in Iowa by Norm Sterzenbach, a veteran Democratic strategist who recently ended a contract with the Iowa Democratic Party in order to prepare to join a presidential campaign, sources familiar with his plans said. "We just want to continue to be a part of it".
