Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Beto O’Rourke, in conversation with us

Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke, is one of the most well-known Texas Democrats, having built up a local and national profile, throughout two campaigns. He set a record for most votes ever cast for a Democrat in a midterm election in Texas. He also pledged not to accept PAC contributions for his Senate campaign.

As early as 2012, he asserted that his experience living on the border gave him “a strong understanding of immigration’s impact on our community”.

While attending Woodberry Forest School, Beto O’Rourke along with a circle of friends founded an environmental group called the Terra Interest Society. Before he was elected to the city council, he joined neighborhood and community efforts to stop the re-permitting of the local ASARCO copper smelter, and once he was on the city council, he made several efforts to ensure that the copper smelter did not re-open.

As the strongest challenger Texas Democrats have put forth in decades – to win, what all is needed to overcome the odds – listen in to this – also learn about Beto O’Rourke’s take on immigration reforms and his take on safeguarding the environment too.
