The Des Moines Democratic party has invited Beto O’Rourke to come visit Iowa, the stomping ground of possible presidential contenders.
According to a Wednesday Hill report, local Democrats have been clamoring for a visit from the charismatic Texan who lost his challenge against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) by three percentage points last week.
Though O’Rourke has reportedly not responded to the invitation, and has previously said that he will not running for President, many of his supporters hope that he’ll change his mind and mount a challenge to President Donald Trump in 2020.
Per the Hill, the Hawkeye State has seen no shortage of presidential possibilities swing through in recent days, as Sens. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) have all recently visited.
