LAS VEGAS (AP) — Backers of former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke are hiring staff in California, Nevada and other early presidential nominating states to help build support for the Democrat’s possible presidential campaign.

O’Rourke, who ran a surprisingly close race in an unsuccessful 2018 challenge to Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, left Congress on Jan. 3 and is deciding whether to turn the enthusiasm he generated among Democrats last year into a 2020 run for the White House.

A “Draft Beto” group seeking to raise $1 million and encourage an O’Rourke presidential campaign has hired Democratic consultant Michael Soneff to serve as the group’s director in Nevada and California. The group also hired a South Carolina director and a senior adviser.

The Draft Beto organization says it plans to hold rallies and events in the coming weeks to build support for O’Rourke.
