Since saying "hell yes," I keep being asked if I'm afraid. I'd be afraid if I were a teacher protecting students from AR-15; if I were a trans woman of color; if I had to drive 300 miles for an abortion. But for those living in fear in America, our leaders must be fearless.

I am so proud to lead this campaign of the best people in America. We’re gonna knock on every door, make every phone call, have every conversation with everyone—Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike. Because, before we are anything else, we are all Americans first.

Congressman hypes up his supporters before walking into the Iowa Steak Fry: “To all of you boat building, overnight camping, sign holding crazy motherf***ers, I am so proud to lead this campaign of the best people in America,” O’Rourke yelled.

Eight years ago, President Obama repealed Don't Ask Don't Tell. But with his transgender troop ban, Trump proved we still have a long way to go toward equality. Let's finish the work President Obama started and make sure everyone can serve our country, no matter who they are.

Trump would rather risk the lives of families who are seeking asylum than welcome them here. We need a president who honors our identity as a nation comprised of immigrants from the world over and recognizes they aren't a threat to our country, but the reason we are great.

A woman in CO told me "hell no" she won't give back her AR-15. I listened, but by her logic: Why shouldn't you be allowed to have a bazooka or a tank? These are the conversations Congress shouldn't be afraid of—because if we're going to end this epidemic, we need to have them.

In 2016, President Trump asked Russia to interfere in our elections. In 2020, he's asking Ukraine to do the same. If no one is above the law, then we have no choice but to impeach this president. When will Congress have the courage to act?

Harvey was Houston's third 500-year flood in 3 years. Now, the region is flooding again. Climate change isn't a distant threat, it's already here. Following the lead of students like who I will be striking in solidarity with today, we must do everything to end it.

We have a lawless president, who is a threat to our democracy. He must be impeached.

Had the chance to sit down with . We talked about why we need to end this epidemic of gun violence, what it was like to meet President Obama, and why I never made it past 8th grade basketball. Hope you listen.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer: "I don’t know of any other Democrat who agrees with ." O'Rourke fires back tonight: "Ask what he’s been able to get done. We still don’t have background checks. Didn’t have them when he was in the majority either."

I was asked about Chuck Schumer’s criticism of my plan to buy back assault weapons. My response is: What has he been able to get done? The American people are with us on this. They’re just waiting on Congress to do the right thing.

I’m running for president of the United States—of everyone in the United States. If we really want to understand the story of this country, we need to go everywhere, from Blunts and Moore dispensary to Skid Row to San Quentin State Prison.
