As Beto O’Rourke nears a decision on 2020 (he plans to announce by the end of the month), he’s heading to Wisconsin and Illinois to visit with students and speak at an event, according to a Thursday Politico report. 

The last time O’Rourke took a road trip, he wrote introspective blog posts to mark his progress.

He held a rally across the street from President Donald Trump’s this week in El Paso, trumpeting a different vision of immigrant inclusion.

O’Rourke has not made any decisions about his future yet, though he reportedly met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) recently to discuss running for Sen. John Cornyn’s (R-TX) seat in 2020.
