Washington, D.C.—Today, People For the American Way (PFAW) praised U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, for running a historic campaign for U.S. Senate in Texas.
“Beto O’Rourke ran a remarkable and inspiring campaign in Texas,” People For the American Way President Michael Keegan said. “His incredible county-by-county effort captivated not only the imaginations of Texans, but people all across the country. While the outcome is not what we would have hoped for, Beto’s influence on Lone Star State politics will persist, and he has definitely made a name for himself as one of the most inspirational figures in Democratic politics.”
