A former U.S. Congressman and former U.S. Senate and presidential candidate is coming to Brenham next week.
Beto O’Rourke will hold a town hall on Monday at 11:30 a.m. at the Ollie Finke Pavilion at Fireman’s Park.
O’Rourke’s stop in Brenham is one of several this month along his statewide tour to promote voting rights. After Brenham, he plans to visit Prairie View, Sugar Land, Beaumont, Waco and Austin.
O’Rourke represented Texas 16th congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2013 to 2019. He lost his bid for election to the U.S. Senate in 2018 against Ted Cruz, and was a candidate in the 2020 presidential election before suspending his race in November 2019. At this time, he is not seeking election as Governor of Texas.
