He has been courted by some Democrats to run again for the Senate. O'Rourke also met recently with Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to discuss a possible Senate bid in 2020, according to Politico.
 
O'Rourke is also weighing whether to run for the presidency in 2020. He said in an interview earlier this month with Oprah Winfrey that he planned to decide by the end of February whether he will make a White House bid.
 
On Tuesday, O'Rourke confirmed that he's still expecting to keep to that timeline, CNN reported.
 
"I won't be limited by, you know, the end of this month. But I expect to be able to get to a decision by the end of this month," he said.
