Asked by The Dallas Morning News on Wednesday, O'Rourke declined to confirm whether the "big announcement" would be the launch of his Senate campaign or discuss any details of what it would be about.

O'Rourke said he speaks to Castro daily. His twin brother, Julian, served as Housing Secretary in the Obama administration and was floated as a possible running mate for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race.

The El Paso congressman has said that Castro's decision will have no impact on whether or not he decides to run and has called him a "good friend". O'Rourke recently got attention for a road trip with Republican Rep.

Castro has developed into a political firebrand for Democrats in the House since securing his seat for the 20th District of Texas in 2013. Cruz is a lawyer who went to Princeton and Harvard.

Inside Elections With Nathan L. Gonzales rates the Texas Senate race as Safe Republican. The two billed their trip as a mobile town hall and broadcast it live on social media platforms to discuss issues such as health care, the Trump administration's travel ban and immigration reform. Last year, he was one of the members who livestreamed a Democratic protest on the floor of the House chamber, and he shared a cult following with U.S. Rep. Will Hurd earlier this month after their flights were canceled.
