Representative O'Rourke stop in Wichita Falls

A Democratic Congressman from El Paso is in Wichita Falls today as part of his campaign trail for the U.S. Senate seat held by Ted Cruz. While he was in town Beto O’Rourke stopped by neighborhoods, the food bank, met with veterans and had a meet and greet at the Highlander Public House.

The last time a Democrat from Texas held a U.S. Senate seat was in 1993, but that has not deterred O’Rourke. He said party affiliation doesn’t matter if people are working together.

“To listen, to learn and to understand. When we are working for each other and to improve this state, party affiliation doesn’t matter,” O’Rourke said. “All that matters is that we are Texans and Americans. I don’t know if we have had somebody run to represent Texas that way in a really long time.”

The hot topic of late has been North Korea and O’Rourke Aknowelged President Trump is in a difficult situation negotiating with North Korea, but he hopes it can be resolved peacefully.

“I still think there is time for peace,” O’Rourke said. “I think there is time to work with China and other regional players before we go down that path. However, war should never be taken completely off the table. If we are to be respected by North Korea they much know that our negotiations and diplomacy are backed by the strength of the greatest military the world has ever known.”

O’Rourke also said the only way to fix the problems with immigration is with comprehensive immigration reform and that the proposed wall will not solve any problems.
Since he announced his campaign for the senate he has made hundreds of stops across Texas and today was his second visit to Wichita Falls this year.
