U.S. Senate Candidate Beto O’Rourke Stops In Bryan

A year ago, Democratic congressman Beto O’Rourke of El Paso shared a rental car with Republican Will Hurd of San Antonio to get back to Washington.

Last Friday, O’Rourke was in the Brazos Valley campaigning for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Ted Cruz.

In Bryan, a standing room only crowd in the meeting room at the Clara B. Mounce library cheered repeatedly, as O’Rourke spent than one hour promoting his positions and taking audience questions.

He was asked about his reaction to the Justice Department’s change of position on prosecuting marijuana possession.
