A group of former Democratic candidates and Democratic activists, actors, and social media influencers have joined forces and created a “Draft Beto” campaign to encourage outgoing Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, to run for president in 2020.
“The comparisons to JFK and even Obama exist for a reason. Beto’s the real deal. His ability to inspire and connect with voters is unparalleled, even among such strong field of presidential contenders,” Nate Lerner, co-founder of Draft Beto and head of its grassroots team, said in a statement Tuesday. “The energy we’re seeing this early is absolutely unprecedented as well.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The group has created an escrow account so all money raised would go toward an O’Rouke presidential campaign, should O’Rourke decide to enter the 2020 Democratic primary fray. Draft Beto’s goal is to raise $1 million to encourage him to run and also to give him a “head-start” in the primary.
