Beto O'Rourke names Texas staff for presidential campaign

by Patrick Svitek, Texas Tribune

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke is naming staff to help him win the Texas primary, an early move signaling his seriousness about competing in his home state.

The former El Paso congressman is set to name a Texas leadership team Tuesday morning, two days before much of the Democratic field heads to Houston for their latest debate. The team, first shared with The Texas Tribune, will be led by Delilah Agho-Otoghile, who most recently was field director for Stacey Abrams' 2018 campaign for Georgia governor. Agho-Otoghile has organizing experience both on presidential campaigns — she worked for Martin O'Malley and Hillary Clinton during the 2016 cycle — and in Texas, where she has held positions with Equality Texas and Battleground Texas.

While Agho-Otoghile will be O'Rourke's state director, Andy Brown will serve as the candidate's Texas senior adviser. A veteran Democratic operative who once chaired the Travis County party, Brown was a senior official on O'Rourke's 2018 U.S. Senate campaign.

Another alum of O'Rourke's Senate bid, Chris Chu de León, will be Texas political adviser. Chu de León was a senior field manager for O'Rourke on the 2018 campaign.
