- Beto O'Rourke presses the flesh during a 2018 campaign stop in San Antonio.
The former El Paso congressman (and owner of an apparently unlimited supply of blue dress shirts) will visit the early voting state this weekend to stump for Eric Giddens, the Democrat vying for an Iowa Senate.
Giddens tweeted a video from O'Rourke reminding University of Northern Iowa students to cast their ballots in Giddens' special election. Wednesday, it turns out, is the final day for early campus voting.
Voting on @northerniowa’s campus is Tuesday and Wednesday at Maucker Union from 10am - 7pm. We need your help to keep this seat blue and get Iowa back on track.— Eric Giddens (@EricGiddens4IA) March 12, 2019
Our campaign and @BetoORourke look forward to getting out the #PantherVote and seeing you on Saturday! pic.twitter.com/I9M2NtY42c
While O'Rourke put in a lot of miles chasing the Texas senate seat he narrowly lost to Ted Cruz, he never appeared in any of the traditional early voting states, according to the Texas Tribune. Until now.
Can an official announcement be far off?
