New, Hugely Popular Presidential Candidate Visiting New Hampshire
Democratic superstar Beto O'Rourke is on his first tour through New Hampshire after announcing his bid for the presidency, according to WMUR. O'Rourke garnered nationwide support during his campaign for U.S. Senate in Texas but ultimately lost the race to incumbent Ted Cruz.
O'Rourke's campaign announced that he will be visiting all 10 counties in New Hampshire, beginning yesterday with a trip to Keene State College. O’Rourke’s campaign blew Bernie Sanders' fund raising records out of the water after he raised a massive $6.1 million in the first 24 hours after announcing his candidacy for the White House, according to Fortune.
At Keene State last night, O'Rourke received a warm welcome. In a tweet thanking the college for hosting him, Beto said:
"Excited to spend the next couple of days listening, learning, and having the opportunity to meet so many great people across the state."
