After saying he has "no plans" to run for governor, Beto O'Rourke quick to clarify he might

by Abby Livingston, Texas Tribune


Former U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke has not ruled out a run for governor after all.

Earlier Friday, The Dallas Morning News published remarks O'Rourke made on an upcoming morning program that roused the Texas political class and suggested he no longer was interested in running for governor.

Ive got no plans to run, and Im very focused on the things that Im lucky enough to do right now organizing, registering voters and teaching, ORourke said on NBC DFWs Lone Star Politics, which will air Sunday. Im just going to keep doing what Im doing now.

The O'Rourke camp then quickly reached out to The Texas Tribune to clarify his sentiment.

"What I said today is what I've been saying for months: I'm not currently considering a run for office," he said in a statement. "I'm focused on what I'm doing now (teaching and organizing.) Nothing's changed and nothing I said would preclude me from considering a run in the future."

4. Let's get real. Aside from the Castro Brothers and Beto, who do we have?

We live in a state of 30 million people, we must have some rising stars somewhere that could win. Right?
