SAN ANGELO, TX – Gubernatorial candidate Beto O'Rourke will be San Angelo on Sunday for his last stop on his tour "The People of Texas Campaign."
The following is the media release sent out by O'Rourke's Campaign team:
"The People of Texas Campaign is taking O’Rourke back to every part of the state throughout March. Each event will focus on how the people of Texas can overcome the current divisions and unite around the popular things that Texans want to accomplish together: expanding Medicaid so more people can see a doctor and afford their prescriptions, creating great jobs that pay a living wage, fully funding schools while having the backs of teachers, and ensuring that everyone can live to their full potential. The statewide drive will also highlight how Greg Abbott has spent the past seven years serving his own interests and those of his corporate donors while repeatedly leaving the people of Texas behind. His obsessive focus on an extreme, radical agenda that divides, attacks, and hurts the people of Texas has come at the direct expense of this state’s schools, health, workers, families, and communities. A running list of People of Texas Campaign events can be found here."
Beto is coming off his first win in years after winning the Democratic primary. O'Rourke has a long way to go though as the amount of Republican votes are nearly 50 percent higher than democrats in Texas.
Specifically in Tom Green County, ten times as many Republicans voted in the primary election as Democrats.
The event will be held Sunday, March 20 at 5:30 p.m. located at 211 N Chadbourne St in San Angelo.
