WATCH: Group of Concerned San Angeloans Protest O'Rourke at Convention Center
SAN ANGELO – A group of concerned San Angeloans calmly protested outside the San Angelo Convention Center Tuesday afternoon as Robert O'Rourke campaigned inside. The protesters said they were not there to attack O'Rourke or his followers.
As previously reported, on Aug. 4, during the West Texas Legislative Summit, an angry and loud group of Liberal protesters harassed attendees who were there to hear Gov. Greg Abbott. The group chanted vulgar language and showed animosity towards the people attending the event.
On Aug. 16 during the rally for the Democrat Gubernatorial candidate Robert O'Rourke, a small group gathered to show their difference of opinion. Instead of vulgarities and animosity, the group simply told people as they walked in 'We're here because we care about you.'
Leader of the protest and local business owner Steve Stango gave a quick word to San Angelo LIVE! Watch the video above to hear his thoughts.
