“Running this campaign with people instead of PACs or special interests allows us to not only visit every single county in the state but to visit the communities within each county so we can continue listening and learning from those we want to serve,” said O’Rourke. “Whether its talking about ensuring every one of us can see a doctor or working to increase equity, I leave these town halls and roundtables with a better understanding of the big, bold, important issues our state wants to lead on.”
This weekend’s visit comes only days after O’Rourke completed his 254-county tour of the state with a visit to Cooke County. Hosting a town hall in Gainesville, he spoke about the importance of showing up everywhere across the state so he can continue to listen, learn, get to know his fellow Texans, add their ideas to his campaign and make their fight his fight. O’Rourke would also spend the weekend leading a block walk in south Dallas, holding a justice roundtable and hosting town halls in Mesquite and Grand Prairie.
Earlier this year, O’Rourke announced that his grassroots campaign raised more than $6.8 million in the first three months of 2018 without taking a dime from PACs or special interests. This was two times more than what Ted Cruz raised in the same period. While bringing in more than 141,000 contributions in the first quarter, O’Rourke has outraised Cruz in four of the campaign’s five FEC reporting periods. New polls show O’Rourke within single digits of Cruz and an April Quinnipiac poll found the Texas Senate race "too close to call."
