Failed Texas Senate hopeful Beto O’Rourke hinted at a potential run for the White House this week; publicly admitting he was not ruling out taking-on Donald Trump in 2020 despite previous denials.

O’Rourke was speaking at a Town Hall event in Texas when he was asked to comment on the Democratic nomination process poised to kick-off in just months.

“Running for Senate, I was 100 percent focused on our campaign, winning that race and then serving the next six years in the United States Senate,” said Beto. “Now that that is no longer possible, you know, we’re thinking through a number of things.”

The Texas congressman was then asked if his previous position from before his 2018 defeat to Sen. Ted Cruz had changed.

“Yeah, yeah it is,” said O’Rourke.
