Asked by The Dallas Morning News on Wednesday, O'Rourke declined to confirm whether the "big announcement" would be the launch of his Senate campaign or discuss any details of what it would be about.
The El Paso Democrat said Wednesday he is planning a campaign announcement Friday amid reports he will challenge GOP Sen. His twin brother, Julian, served as Housing Secretary in the Obama administration and was floated as a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race. According to the Texas Tribune, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro of San Antonio is weighing a run himself. It was on that trip that Beto made a decision to run for Senate. "We both agreed that we've got to come to our decisions about the whether to enter the race", Castro said.
Democrats seldom dump much, if any cash into Texas Senate races for obvious reasons - their money is better spent in states they have a chance of winning.
Jones added that Castro "has always led the charge on tough fights, so one way or another, he will be on the front lines of the 2018 midterm elections doing everything he can to continue to hold Republicans accountable".

Castro has developed into a political firebrand for Democrats in the House since securing his seat for the 20th District of Texas in 2013. O'Rourke survived a 2006 recall effort by opponents of downtown El Paso redevelopment that he supported. Cruz is a lawyer who went to Princeton and Harvard. His father once was the El Paso County judge, and O'Rourke is a former member of the El Paso city council.
