A note from Beto, 10/22:

The turnout at our rallies, the energy that we see in every community in Texas, the excitement and commitment that people from all walks of life are showing -- Democrats, Independents and Republicans -- it's amazing.

I'm as encouraged, as hopeful, as I've ever been.

Today is the first day of Early Voting in Texas. We need to make sure that every single person we've met -- everyone who has come to a town hall or rally, everyone who has answered the door when a volunteer has knocked, all those who responded to our text messages inviting them into the election of our lifetimes -- we need to make sure that they get to the polls and cast their ballot.

Your donation today helps us to reach them and make sure that they get out to decide the election of our lifetimes.

This is our moment of truth. Let's make sure that every single Texan can stand up to be counted.



Texas needs more bipartisanship: We endorse Beto O'Rourke for US Senate El Paso Times Editorial Board

Perhaps the reason U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke's campaign for Senate has resonated with so many is that it represents the best qualities of being an El Pasoan.

That includes an understanding that the value of humanity should be at the heart of any discussion on immigration reform, the recognition that having a strong trade partnership with Mexico boosts our economy and a
willingness to give voice to those who have often felt shut out by politics at the state and national level.

O'Rourke, who grew up in El Paso, has been one of the strongest advocates of the border city.

That, of course, makes El Pasoans, who have long felt ignored by state and federal governments, excited about the possibility of electing a U.S. senator who understands the complexities of the border region. It also means that O'Rourke knows and can relate to the frustration felt by voters in rural Texas and other communities who feel neglected by their

Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, who is facing off against O'Rourke, has sought to paint the El Paso Democrat as out-of-touch with Texas values. We disagree and believe O'Rourke's time as a small business owner, City Council representative and a member of Congress since his 2012 election have provided him with the experience needed to serve Texas in the U.S. Senate.
