"I'm really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents".

Former El Paso Congressman and failed senatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke has officially made the announcement: he's running for president in 2020.

O'Rourke confirmed his plan to formally announce his candidacy on Thursday morning to El Paso NBC affiliate KTSM.

The news came hours after O'Rourke's Vanity Fair magazine cover was revealed with the caption: "His road to 2020 begins". 'Man, I'm just born to be in it, and want to do everything I humanly can for this country at this moment'. He has also spent the last few weeks an Iowa, a clear indication he was feeling out a potential run for president. "If I were to run, if I were to win, that my administration looks like this country". And: "You can probably tell that I want to run", he said.

The former congressman gained a national following with his unsuccessful run for Senate a year ago against Republican Ted Cruz.

President Trump campaigned hard for Cruz, lobbing attacks against O'Rourke as he campaigned in the Lone Star State.

O'Rourke becomes the 15th Democrat to enter the race to decide who will take on Trump in the general election.
