This is the day we’ve been waiting for. Today, Beto announced that he is running for President in 2020!
We want to express our deep gratitude to all of you. When we launched this draft campaign in November, we had no idea what to expect. We quickly realized the support and enthusiasm for Beto extended to every corner of our country as thousands of people signed up to volunteer from all fifty states within a matter of days.
Together, we built a list of 30,000 and a social media following of more than 20,000. We held organizing events in 25 states, released a video featuring supporters from 30 states, and got a head start on organizing the crucial early states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
Most importantly, we did it through real, grassroots organizing - led by volunteers and activists in communities all over the country. Thank you for everything you did to make this campaign a success.
Now the real work begins. Beto is an announced candidate for President and we need to do everything we can to make sure he wins.
