Beto O'Rourke says will decide on U.S. presidential run this month

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Beto O'Rourke, the Democratic former Texas congressman whose unexpectedly close but ultimately unsuccessful campaign for U.S. Senate generated buzz about a 2020 presidential bid, said on Tuesday (February 5) he will decide by the end of the month whether to run.

In a taped interview with Oprah Winfrey in New York, O'Rourke, 46, appeared to be leaning toward a 2020 campaign for the White House but said he would make his decision after consulting his wife and three children.

"I have been thinking about running for president," he said, prompting wild applause.

"I'm so excited at the prospect of being able to play that role." The remarks, the closest O'Rourke has come to declaring his intentions for 2020, were made in a discussion open to the media at "Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square." The interview will air on Winfrey's cable television channel OWN on Feb.
