Beto O’Rourke makes campaign stops in Marshall, Nacogdoches
Texas (KSLA) - Beto O’Rourke, who is hoping to become the next governor of Texas, made campaign stops at Wiley College and Stephen F. Austin University on Tuesday, Oct. 4.
These stops were part of O’Rourke’s College Tour, which focuses on young voters. During the tour, O’Rourke will hold more than a dozen public events with young voters at colleges and universities throughout Texas. Some of his priorities include restoring reproductive freedom, reducing gun violence, raising the minimum wage, expanding healthcare access, making higher education more affordable, legalizing marijuana, and ensuring the planet is protected for future generations.
Oct. 11 is the deadline to register to vote in Texas.

A voter registration drive was held on Wiley College’s campus, and O’Rourke held a Q&A session with students.
”These young people are getting registered to vote and they are not only doing that, they are signing up to volunteer to go reach other students and bring them in. These young people will be the margin of victory for the change that Texas deserves,” O’Rourke said.
O’Rourke also stopped at Stephen F. Austin University on his campaign trail Tuesday.
