O’Rourke to do Win­frey in­ter­view

The Sacramento Bee - - Local -

For­mer Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke will head to New York next month for a live in­ter­view with Oprah Win­frey as he con­tin­ues to mull a 2020 pres­i­den­tial run.

O’Rourke will be part of “Oprah’s Su­perSoul Con­ver­sa­tions from Times Square” on Feb. 5. He’ll speak to Win­frey one-onone as part of an event fea­tur­ing oth­ers, in­clud­ing ac­tors Bradley Cooper and Michael B. Jor­dan.

O’Rourke, 46, rose to na­tional Demo­cratic promi­nence while nearly un­seat­ing Repub­li­can Sen. Ted Cruz in deep-red Texas in Novem­ber.

De­spite other top Democrats tak­ing steps to likely join the 2020 pres­i­den­tial race, O’Rourke’s camp sug­gests he won’t make up his mind for at least a few more weeks.

Win­frey her­self has been the sub­ject of 2020 chat­ter but has said she doesn’t plan to run.
