Via The Hill:
Beto O’Rourke will give a major speech Thursday morning in an effort to infuse his presidential campaign with new life — and it could be his last chance.
The former Texas congressman has struggled to gain traction since entering the Democratic race in March, never recapturing the excitement that surrounded his Senate bid against incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) last year.
But O’Rourke has been catapulted back to national attention in the most tragic circumstances imaginable — the Aug. 3 mass shooting in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, that left 22 people dead.
O’Rourke came off the campaign trail when the shooting happened, and has been a powerful voice of support for the victims.
