The 46-year-old made his first official stop as a 2020 Democratic candidate in Iowa this week, announcing his White House bid early Thursday morning.

He has been campaigning in the early primary state since his announcement.

O'Rourke rose to national prominence in the 2018 midterm cycle, where he narrowly lost his bid to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in deep red Texas.

The former Texas congressman faces over a dozen contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination, including big-name politicians like Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
