Beto O'Rourke's Final Campaign Rally for the 2018 Midterms

Beto O’Rourke held his final campaign rally on the eve of Election Day. The congressman looks to unseat Senator Ted Cruz to become the first Democratic senator to represent Texas in 28 years.

“More than a year and a half ago right here in El Paso, we started this campaign to see if we could help bring this divided country together. Since then we have visited every single one of the 254 counties of Texas,” he stated at the rally. “The differences between us, of geography, of party, of who you voted for in the last election, of who you pray to, whether you pray at all. Who you love, how many generations, you can count yourself a Texan, or an American, or whether you just got here yesterday. None of that stuff matters now.”

Regardless of whether or not the Democratic candidate wins, his political progress in a deep red state has shown that Republicans have some competition.

“Voting amongst young people ages 18-29, get this, is up 500% from 2014,” O’Rourke stated. “If we keep this up then, tomorrow night at the Chihuahuas ballpark after every one of us has finished our block walking and phone baking shifts, that in precisely at 7:01 Mountain Standard Time we will be getting together to celebrate the victory of our lifetimes…”
