Beto O’Rourke won’t rule out running for governor, but is keeping focus on voting rights fight

WASHINGTON — Beto O’Rourke might very well become a candidate for governor, but he wants to keep his focus on his work with grassroots civic engagement organizations for now.

“I’ve committed myself to this fight for the right to vote and preserving our democracy in America,” he said Friday. “We are in really the final hours of this fight, and there’s not much time left for us, and I want to make sure I’m giving this 100% of my focus and my effort.”
