The New Hampshire Young Democrats are clamoring for Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) to travel to the Granite State to take a tour and meet voters — just two weeks after the Des Moines Democrats also extended the invitation.

This second invite from a crucial state for presidential contenders has not yet been answered by the young rising star, according to a Thursday CNBC report.

Top Democratic donors and operatives, many of whom have put their 2020 plans on hold while O’Rourke decides whether or not to challenge President Donald Trump, have reportedly been probing the Texan’s associates to suss out which way he’s leaning.

Some have speculated that if O’Rourke decides to sit out the presidential race, he could instead challenge Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) when his seat is up in 2020.
