Beto O’Rourke talks a lot about going “everywhere” - this Saturday afternoon it’s Vorhees College, a small HBCU in rural Denmark, SC. Small crowd of ~50 people here. O’Rourke opened by saying he wants to go to rural places that “sometimes get overlooked.” – at Voorhees College
Thank you to everyone who knocked on doors today across the country and introduced this campaign to their community. Very grateful for your work. If you want to join a canvass tomorrow, find one near you at http://Map.BetoORourke.com
Energizing dinner discussion in Columbia with campus Democratic leaders from across the state. Grateful for the ideas, perspective, and leadership on all of the most urgent challenges this country faces. Looking forward to working together in the months and years ahead. – at Rockaway Athletic Club
Just wrapped up a town hall in Denmark, SC on the campus of Voorhees College, home to 434 students. Engaging questions on health care, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, ending inequality in education & the economy, investing in veteran resources & decreasing gun violence.
In Denmark, @BetoORourke (losing his voice again) says he’s trying to get to rural areas like this that “have been overlooked or taken for granted.”
“We want to make sure that these communities are among the first we visit” #scpol
An honor to be with Ms. Louise Brown and @Rep_Pendarvis today at the 50th Anniversary of the MUSC Hospital Strike. Two great leaders who are doing incredible on-the-ground work for communities across this state.
Marching together on the 50th Anniversary of the MUSC Hospital Strike. Not only a reminder of the heroic women who led the civil rights movement & forced the necessary change in our country but a commitment to doing the work ahead to secure equity, justice & civil rights for all.
The president’s actions are an incitement to violence against Rep. Omar and Muslim Americans across the country. There is a cost and consequence to this rhetoric. Members of both parties must stand together and condemn the president's dangerous actions.
Started the weekend with a town hall in Ladson where we came together for a conversation about voting rights, justice reform, the environment, protecting Dreamers, and housing affordability. Thanks for joining us.
In opening remarks this morning at town hall in Ladson, South Carolina, @BetoORourke brought up the Trump 9/11 video, describing it for those who haven’t seen. “This is an incitement to violence against Congresswoman Omar, against our fellow Americans who happen to be Muslim.”
“O’Rourke discussed his views on immigration, speaking in Spanish at times...O’Rourke advocated for public education reform, explaining the need to pay teachers a living wage and improve retirement programs in states like South Carolina and Texas.”
Incredibly honored to have the endorsement, wisdom, and leadership of State Rep. Marvin Pendarvis as we build our grassroots campaign to fight for everyone in South Carolina and everyone in the United States of America. Very grateful.
