Governor O'Malley announces not running, but endorses Beto.

*I had the honor of campaigning with both of these heroes, and over 120 other courageous Democrats across our country in the 2018 midterms. They spoke to the goodness within us as a people. And they spoke with a fearlessness about the future we can build together.

All of which brings me to Beto O’Rourke.

In his courageous run for U.S. Senate in Texas, O’Rourke ran a disciplined and principled campaign that also managed to be raw, authentic, and real. He spoke to the American values of honesty, compassion for one another, and courage in the face of a rapidly changing future. These are the American values alive and well in the hearts of our young people. These are the values which tell us where America is headed. And with these values, O’Rourke very nearly defeated the incumbent senator and Republican runner-up for president — in Texas.

The fearless vision and unifying message which brought people together in Texas also sparked imaginations all across our country. And, I believe, will again — if Beto O’Rourke runs for president.'>>>

1. Disappointed he's not running. He'd have been my first choice

But, I do think he'd have likely gotten drown out by the dynne.
So, I understand why

2. Yes, I understand why too.

Hope some smart Dem make use of his administrative skills, in a cabinet post.
