Congressman comes to campus to talk policy, inspire civic engagement

Next year’s midterm elections are still more than a year away, but the candidate who wants to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is already stumping for votes.

Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, stopped by campus Wednesday in an effort to appeal to those who have never voted. He talked with 30 people in the chambers of the Brown-Lupton University Union.

“I’m making a bet for those who haven’t voted before,” O’Rourke said. “If we take a chance on them, they’re going to take a chance on us. Everyone deserves to be heard.”
