I look forward to supporting Beto during his 2020 presidential run.— roxane gay (@rgay) November 7, 2018
What Beto O'Rourke did in Texas was absolutely amazing and—while I'm certainly not announcing support for any candidate—I do believe, fervently, Beto should run for President of the United States in 2020.— Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) November 7, 2018
100% serious. If he can get 48% in Texas, anything is possible nationally.
Beto O'Rourke's loss tonight in Texas may open up a 2020 Presidential run to him.— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) November 7, 2018
He is going to lose by less than 2 points. That's remarkable in Texas. Really shows the direction the country is head.
Congrats Beto on a hard fought battle.

I can’t really put into words what I’m feeling right now. So I’ll just say— Curtis Kimberlin Jr. (@sir_kimberlin) November 7, 2018
Thank you, @BetoORourke, for inspiring the nation and giving hope to millions. Your campaign has brought me immense joy in times when I felt joyless. #BetoForTexas
The fire that Beto O'Rourke sparked in Texas isn't going to go out tonight. First time in a generation Texas Dems have tasted hope -- they'll be back to fight again.— Matthew Miller (@matthewamiller) November 7, 2018
