Beto O'Rourke has made it official and annoucned his candidacy for President in 2020 ('Cause why the hell not? Everyone else is running).

Beto - the "so f***ing proud of you guys" dude - made his announcement via a brief video on Twitter. 

From CNN:

In that video, O'Rourke and his wife, Amy, sit on a couch as O'Rourke explains why he is running for president and embarking on the "greatest grass-roots campaign this country has ever seen."

Gesticulating throughout the video, he called this a moment of "maximum peril and maximum potential."

The tweet included a link to his website, with portals for donations (gotta tap into those grass roots somehow!), a store selling BETO for AMERICA lawn signs and T-shirts, and a listing for jobs.

According to Hammer and Nigel, O'Rourke actually has one advantage over his many democrat competitors.


"He can fundraise like no one else. Money won't be a problem - especially since he's already loaded. Beto married him a sugar momma and they've got some major cash. A lot of people don't realize that they've got around $10 million dollars in the account.


"It might be more than that - nobody really knows the exact amount. His wife, Amy, had a father who was a Texas real estate magnet. By some estimates, he was worth as much as a billion dollars. But yeah, they've got an extremely large bank account."
