Beto O’Rourke missing own UTEP rally, replaced by wife Amy and Veronica Escobar

El Paso News

U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke won’t be able to make his U.S. Senate campaign rally at UTEP on Tuesday.

However, supporters will have a chance to see Amy O’Rourke, his wife, and Veronica Escobar, former County Judge who is now the Democratic candidate to replace O’Rourke. Escobar is facing Rick Seeberger, the Republican candidate, on the Nov. 6 ballot. The duo will debate 5 p.m. Monday night at El Paso Community College’s Val Verde Campus. 

The event was announced last week, but on Sunday the event appeared to be canceled. However, on Monday the event was changed from “Join Beto for a rally” to “Amy O’Rourke and Veronica Escobar at UTEP!”

O’Rourke is running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Ted Cruz. The race has gained national attention.
