Beto O’Rourke Meets With Barack Obama

Beto O’Rourke Meets With Barack Obama

December 5, 2018

Failed U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke met with former President Barack Obama last month as the Texas Democrat considers a bid for the White House in 2020.

The Washington Post reports that O’Rourke met November 16 with Obama at the former president’s Washington, D.C., office in the posh neighborhood of Foggy Bottom. Details of what they discussed are unknown, and press representatives for both camps declined to comment on the report.

O’Rourke said recently he isn’t ruling out a potential 2020 presidential run, walking back earlier pronouncements that he wouldn’t seek the White House regardless of the outcome of his Senate campaign in Texas.
