“I’m going to people where they are in their communities,” O’Rourke said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday morning. “No me importa. I do not care how red or blue, rural or urban; I’m showing up to listen to them, and what they’re telling me is they want this country to come together around our shared challenges. So I’m listening to them more than I am to the headlines.”

O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman, has come under fire for a recent Vanity Fair cover story in which he was quoted as saying: “I want to be in it. Man, I’m just born to be in it.” While he has since said he meant he felt he was born to be a public servant, the article was perceived by many as reflecting a sense of entitlement that he was born to be president.
