"This city is the best example of this country at its best".

His social media presence and vast fundraising power lifted him from a little-known three-term congressman to a Democratic rockstar with a following that stretched well beyond Texas.

O'Rourke premised much of his appeal in the Senate race on his refusal to accept money from political action committees, and instead raised $80 million from small-dollar donors, a national record for a Senate bid. He lost the race by less than three percentage points, the tightest US Senate contest in the state in four decades.

Announcing his candidacy in an online video, O'Rourke, who gained a national following with his long-shot election battle against U.S. Senator Ted Cruz a year ago, pledged to tackle "the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate".

The Democratic field features the most diverse set of candidates to run for president in American history. If I were to run, if I were to win, that my administration looks like this country.

He added: "I want to be in it".

Since his Senate bid ended, O'Rourke has worked to keep himself in the public eye, regularly staying in touch with his supporters and sitting for an interview with Oprah Winfrey. He visited with students in the key swing state of Wisconsin.

The former House Democratic lawmaker told CBS interviewer Gail King on "CBS This Morning" that the president may have obstructed justice and there may have been collusion with Russian Federation.

Trump, who became known for slapping derisive nicknames onto opponents during the 2016 campaign, focused on O'Rourke's hands on Thursday when asked about O'Rourke's campaign announcement.

"I'm really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents", O'Rourke said in the text.
