One of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) closest advisers is reportedly planning to meet with Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) as the rising Democratic star mulls a possible 2020 presidential run, The Washington Post reported Friday.
Mindy Myers, who ran Warren’s successful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign before becoming the senator’s chief of staff, is expected to meet with O’Rourke “soon,” according to the Post.
News of the possible meeting comes as both prominent Democrats are reportedly considering campaigns for the White House against President Trump in 2020.
The Post reported that Myers is in talks with several rival campaigns. She declined to comment to the paper.
