Speaking to NBC’s Chuck Todd in Waterloo, Iowa, presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke addressed concerns about the Democratic Party not necessarily wanting to choose a white male as its 2020 nominee, and acknowledged that the amount of popular media coverage he has received has been driven in part by his privilege:

“As a white man, who has had privileges that others could not depend on or take for granted, I’ve clearly had advantages over the course of my life. I think recognizing that and understanding that others have not, doing everything I can to ensure that there is opportunity and the possibility for advancement and advantage for everyone, is a big part of this campaign and a big part of the people who comprise this campaign. I think this is the best field that we’ve ever seen in a nominating process.”

The article goes on to state the following:

On Saturday night, O’Rourke said he “very likely would choose a female running mate if he manages to nab the Democratic presidential nomination next year,” The Dallas Morning News’ Todd Gillman reports from Dubuque, Iowa.
