Former US congressman Beto O'Rourke is "making and receiving calls" about a potential run for Texas governor, David Wysong, O'Rourke's chief of staff, told Axios.

"No decision has been made," Wysong said. "He has been making and receiving calls with people from all over the state."

Sources confirmed to Insider that O'Rourke has yet to make a decision to run. The El Paso native vociferously fought against the state's new elections laws in 2021.

Sen. Ted Cruz narrowly bested O'Rourke in a 2018 Senate race with O'Rourke losing by less than 3 percentage points.
