MCKINNEY (WBAP/KLIF News) – Democratic Senate Candidate Beto O’Rourke continued his North Texas tour this morning in McKinney, speaking to hundreds of supporters about wanting to fix Congress and push for Universal Healthcare.
Ken Smith, who recently turned Democrat, was at the rally and said O’Rourke gives him hope.
“I really see the things the concerns that people like Beto responding to expressing as being very similar to the concerns that I had when I was a Republican,” he said.
Pepa Paniagua said she showed up to see what all the hype was about.
“We don’t often see a collection of mass Democrats in Texas…it doesn’t happen all that often. So, I wanted to see who would show up,” she said.
O’Rourke, who hails from El Paso, told supporters he wants to fix what he called a gerrymandering problem in Texas to make voting more fair.
He said he thinks he can beat his opponent Republican incumbent Senator Ted Cruz in the November mid-term elections.
A new Quinnipiac University poll shows he just might have a chance.
According to the poll, 47 percent of registered voters support Ted Cruz while 44 percent are behind O’Rourke.
