WACO, Texas (KWTX) -Texas Democratic governor nominee Beto O’Rourke has announced that he is launching a statewide drive to Get Out the Vote as part of his growing grassroots campaign to deliver for all the people of Texas.

He will hold a dozen public rallies in every part of the state before Early Voting begins on Oct. 24.

“The people of Texas are ready to hold Greg Abbott fully accountable for eight years of failing all of us as he continues to put his extreme agenda over the people of Texas,” said O’Rourke. “We are going to bring people together in every part of this state to focus on the big things that unite us, get out the vote in record numbers and win political power on November 8.”

According to his campaign, this comes after O’Rourke announced that he outraised Greg Abbott for the second consecutive fundraising period, receiving more than $25.18 million from nearly half a million contributions during the last three months.

Beto recently wrapped up a 20-campus college tour to register young voters and get out the young vote.
