With President Donald Trump's job approval mired in the low- to mid-40s, Republicans are starting to focus on ensuring he faces as weak a candidate as possible...

In an announcement posted on Twitter, Eric Giddens, an Iowa Democrat who is running in a special election for a state senate seat, said his campaign workers and O'Rourke will be urging students this Saturday at the University of Northern Iowa to vote in his election race.

"Supporting him for state Senate is the way that we get Iowa-and by extension, this country-back on the right track", O'Rourke says in the video.

"A "big announcement" from Beto O'Rourke is on the horizon" was first published by The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans - and engages with them - about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee speaks during a rally at the beginning of the March For Science in Seattle, Washington, U.S. April 22, 2017. A Friday visit to Des Moines was considered initially, but isn't now in the works, as O'Rourke plans to devote all three days to introducing himself to voters in eastern Iowa. Bernie Sanders are visiting Iowa.

O'Rourke released a video Monday night from Texas backing Giddens and wearing a Northern Iowa cap.

Beto O'Rourke is headed to Iowa this weekend.

"Beto O'Rourke has long sold Democrats a bill of goods, pretending to be a liberal superstar while exploiting his father-in-law's connections to climb the political ladder".

O'Rourke is in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, this week ahead of his Iowa trip.

O'Rourke's name was thrown in the ring as a potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate after his closer-than-expected loss a year ago to U.S. Sen. "I wish I could tell you more". The former Texas congressman is expected to visit the Hawkeye State on Saturday to participate in a get-out-the-vote event.

"It's time Democratic voters in Iowa know who the real Beto O'Rourke is - an entitled, corrupt political climber", Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh wrote in a statement.
