U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, will make an appearance on The Ellen Show on Sept. 5.
Ellen DeGeneres tweeted, “See you September 5th, @BetoORourke. #ellen16” at about 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
Last week, DeGeneres tweeted that she would like to meet O’Rourke after his stance on the National Anthem protest went viral.
O’Rourke is currently running against U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
The Ellen Show airs at 4 p.m. daily on KTSM.
