WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - Beto O’Rourke will be hosting a Veterans Town Hall in Wichita Falls on Sunday, May 22.

The Democrat gubernatorial candidate is holding a town hall focused on delivering for veterans. The meeting is public and will take place at the Martin Luther King Center, on 1100 Smith Street, in Wichita Falls, at 12:00 p.m.

During the town hall meeting, O’Rourke said he will lay out his vision for creating a Texas that fully serves the veterans who served us.

The event is part of O’Rourke’s People of Texas campaign, which has held town halls around jobs, public education and health care. The next six town halls will focus on veterans and be held in Houston, San Antonio, San Angelo, Abilene, Killeen and Wichita Falls. O’Rourke has worked on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee and received the Outstanding House Legislator of the Year Award from the Disabled American Veterans.

O’Rourke will face off against Republican incumbent Governor Greg Abbott in November.
