"I'm really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents", O'Rourke said of his hometown in a text to TV station KTSM, which first reported his entry into the race.

Democrat Beto O'Rourke urged full legalization of marijuana in the U.S.in remarks on the first day of his 2020 presidential run, but also called for stigmatizing the drug like tobacco to discourage children from using it.

While he narrowly lost his U.S. Senate race to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz a year ago, O'Rourke managed to build a nationwide following with his unconventional, optimistic style combined with a populist message that brought in nearly US$80 million in primarily small donations.

Beyond a previously announced event in Waterloo, Iowa on Saturday, O'Rourke is expected to visit other towns in eastern Iowa, traditionally a Democratic stronghold, Politico said.

Rockets fired from Gaza target Tel Aviv for first time since 2014
It would be the first time that Tel Aviv has been targeted by rocket fire since a 2014 war against Gaza militants . The military said two rockets were launched from the Gaza Strip and it would provide further details later.

Vanity Fair quoted O'Rourke as saying in an interview published on Wednesday that he was aware of his disadvantage as a white man at a time when many in the Democratic Party want a woman or a person of color for president. In an encouraging sign, however, a third of respondents said they did not know enough about him to have an opinion.

O'Rourke, a 46-year-old former three-term United States representative from West Texas, made the announcement online. O'Rourke accused Trump of stoking "false fear" about immigrants. "I don't see how we're able to meet any of the fundamental challenges that we have as a country without, in part, harnessing the power of the market".

O'Rourke, whose given name is Robert Francis, acquired his nickname while growing up in El Paso, Texas.

In 2018 speculation began that Mr O'Rourke may decide to run after his campaign for the US Senate proved his worth.
