Democrats hoping for – or at least intrigued by – a potential Presidential run by former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke gathered in Concord  Wednesday.

The Draft Beto campaign launched on the heels of O’Rourke’s loss to Ted Cruz in a Texas U.S. Senate race. The loss was closer than expected. O’Rourke’s message of uplift and his social media skill helped him raise  $78 million.
