Beto O’Rourke Says It’s “No Secret” He’s Thinking of Running for Governor

At a virtual live event hosted by Mother Jones on Wednesday, former US Representative Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) confirmed that he is considering a run for Texas governor—in large part due to his concern for voting rights.

“[It’s] no secret, I’m thinking about running for governor,” he told Mother Jones’ Ari Berman. “Front and center in my consideration is just this: what it means for us to live in a democracy.”
