Meanwhile, O'Rourke will have to prove that he can keep up the fundraising prowess and grassroots energy that he generated in his unsuccessful Senate run against Ted Cruz. But he has not clearly defined himself in terms of what he actually believes or where his ideology will fit among a group of candidates who range from progressive to more moderate.
"This moment of peril produces, perhaps, the greatest moment of promise for this country", O'Rourke, 46, said in an online video.
Acording to the Post, the former congressman's GOP ties are likely to become an issue as he enters a crowded Democratic presidential primary field that has leaned leftward.
"CBS This Morning" co-anchor Gayle King will speak with O'Rourke for his only national TV interview following his 2020 announcement, Friday on "CBS This Morning" with a preview airing on "CBS Evening News" Thursday night.
The trip will serve as the first test of whether O'Rourke can carry to the national political stage the pop-star appeal he showed in Texas a year ago, drawing enthusiastic crowds and $80 million in campaign donations.

Cohen Knows What Trump Is Capable Of. His Testimony Should Terrify Us
Republicans were focused like a laser on showing that Cohen was untrustworthy, and thus the hearing was a colossal waste of time. Trump has called an investigation into possible collusion between Moscow and his presidential campaign a "witch hunt".
"I'm a capitalist", O'Rourke told reporters last month.
The White House run will also prompt greater scrutiny of his policy proposals and track record in Congress.
An influential Iowa poll released last week showed O'Rourke as the first choice of just 5 percent of Democratic voters, behind four contenders, including former Vice President Joe Biden, who has not yet declared a bid, and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.
"Well, I think he's got a lot of hand movement".
O'Rourke had mulled a presidential run for months and took an unusual break for what appeared to be some soul-searching after his loss, taking a road trip to New Mexico, Kansas and elsewhere.
"But unlike Trump, O'Rourke can appear nearly too innocent to be a politician-too decent, too wholesome, the very reason he became popular also the same reason he could be crucified on the national stage".
