A recent reported meeting is sparking more speculation Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke is set to launch a presidential bid.
Buzz Feed News is reported Monday that O’Rourke and Reverend Al Sharpton had a sit down last week. While details are limited, a spokesperson for Sharpton told the outlet the two had a great conversation and set up a future meeting.
This comes as O’Rourke has flip-flopped on his stance of running for president.
When asked during his failed senatorial campaign if he would run in 2020, he responded with:
“I don’t want to do it, I will not do it –Amy and I are raising an 11-year-old, a 10-year-old, and a seven-year-old and we spent the better part of the last two-years not with each other, missing birthdays and anniversaries and time together, and our family could not survive more of that.”
However, O’Rourke has since said he made the decision not to rule anything out.
