The dash around San Antonio occurred on the coattails of the announcement that Beto's funding, free from the influence of corporations or PACs, has doubled that of incumbent Ted Cruz. In a Wednesday announcement, O'Rourke's camp said around 70 percent of his donations are coming from Texas, with an average commitment of $33 dollars and that the total number of donations is in the neighborhood of 10.4 million dollars in the past three months.
At the opening, O'Rourke emphasized his vision for the future of Texas and the crucial role San Antonio has in making that happen, stating the city is a demographic example of what the state will become.
Some of O'Rourke's other platforms include universal healthcare, rewriting immigration laws, protecting dreamers, dismantling the school to prison pipeline and providing mental health resources and support for veterans.
His new office located on 430 Austin Street, will be a center for calls, canvassing, and organizing for volunteers.
