Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke will meet with the citizens of Corpus Christi Wednesday as a part of his 34-day drive across Texas.

Members of the community are invited to meet O’Rourke and hear him speak about issues Texans face at a public town hall at the Valencia, 6110 Ayers St., at 6 p.m.

O’Rourke is campaigning on a promise to visit every county in Texas. He also says his campaign only takes donations from individuals, not Political Action Committees (PACs). His campaign recently announced they had raised $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2018 without “taking a dime from PACs or special interests.”

“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 return so we can continue listening and learning from those we want to serve,” said O’Rourke.

O’Rourke is running to unseat current Senator Ted Cruz.
