U.S Senate Texas

A native of El Paso and a fourth-generation Texan, O’Rourke was elected to represent his hometown and the 16th District in the U.S. House in 2012, winning in a race against an eight-term incumbent. Previously, he served two terms on the El Paso City Council and started a technology company. As a representative, O’Rourke serves on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs. He has introduced the No PAC Act, to end candidates’ reliance on PAC funding, and he has worked to ensure veterans have access to health care.

“Beto O’Rourke is committed to grassroots organizing and an inclusive, progressive agenda. Ted Cruz is a liar fueled by fundamentalist religiosity and superpacs. Beto O'Rourke could help to steer Texas and America toward a sustainable future for all Texans. #betoforsenate” —Molly C., The Woodlands, TX
