TEXAS – El Paso Congressman Beto O’Rourke will continue his campaign for the U.S. Senate with a return to Harris County and Fort Bend County on Tuesday. He will host town halls in Pasadena and Rosenberg. These two forums were recently rescheduled when the El Paso Congressman returned home to lead a Father’s Day March to Tornillo, an effort to highlight the Trump Administration’s policy of inhumanely separating children from their parents. Since then, O’Rourke has continued to travel the state and hold open dialogues with Democrats, Republicans, independents and non-voters alike.

“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.”
O’Rourke recently visited Harris County where he held a grassroots rally, a Latino community roundtable, an Asian American community leaders lunch and an African American young professionals town hall. He also marched in Mayor Turner’s Annual Acres Home Juneteenth Parade and addressed the Islamic Society’s Eid al-Fitr service.
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."
