O'Rourke, 46, who has traded on his charisma to sprint up the political ladder, enters a crowded field of Democratic hopefuls with a proven ability to raise money from donors online and a willingness to campaign relentlessly.O'Rourke is far from a front-runner just yet -- with Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Vice President Joe Biden, who is considering a White House bid, leading polls.O'Rourke, who critics say has offered little details about where he stands on myriad issues, will face a test on whether he can match up with policy heavyweights like Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.O'Rourke will need those same donors to flock to him in a way that makes him competitive with other well-funded candidates, including other grassroots stars such as Sanders and Warren.
